Spotify has announced that they have simplified their verification process. Instead of having a separate form, in the future all artists who have access to their Spotify for Artists profile will automatically get the verified check on their artist page. Everyone who is already verified will retain their check mark.
Here we provide you with a step-by-step to get verified on Spotify for your band, artist, or producer profiles. It’s a fairly simple process but there are some minimum requirements that Spotify will ask from you.
a) greater than 250 followers
b) have music on the service, and
c) have a working username.
A successful verification will apply a blue checkmark to your profile and allows you to:
– Merge your user account with your artist page
– Share your playlists, listening and sharing with your fans
– Updates directly from your discography.
– Brand your playlists with images and descriptions.
