To better identify your account for friends, family, and followers, you may want to update your Spotify profile picture.

You can easily make this change in the desktop app. This is currently the only way to change your picture, as you’re unable to do so either on Spotify’s website or mobile app.

In addition to changing the photo, you can also remove the photo entirely. This will revert your Spotify picture back to a grey silhouette of a person.

Here’s how to change your profile picture.
