I Try to connect Alexa with the Spotify account and I get the " You are not eligible to enable this skill due to geographical restriction" I have friends with free pr premium Spotify account in the same city asme who can connect.

I tried changing address on amazon account to Germany and US, beside more apps available, still same restriction available. 

 

There is any option to put a Spotify account on Alexa, the radio stations in Romania are not enjoyable on daily basis.

 

Please save me.

Hey @Noguri,

 

open the Spotify app  on your phone/iPad, go to settings, voice assistants and link your Spotify app to Alexa there. It will work.

 

The solution is to initiate the process from the Spotify app instead of the Alexa device!

This was the best advice. Worked perfectly for me after months of trying other recommendations 

Love you! Thanks a thousand times. Let your path be illuminated by stars shining through your life! 😄

Changing the default Amazon delivery address didnt help in my case, but following this did: https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201248840 

Same on Android in Czechia - Thank You!!!

the same for me. At first command "spotify connect" stopped work. so I solved it with alexa support - they recommended disable/enable spotify skill. I disabled it and then I was not able to enable shill due the GEO problem. Then I found this thread.

I linked alexa via spotify app, but the command "alexa, spotify command" still don't work. in activity (in the alexa app) I see "Audio was not intended for this device".

This works perfectly in 2023. Thank you!

Awesome! Thanks for your reply here this one worked for me, spent 3 days trying to setup. But even with my Spotify being registered in Brazil and my Amazon on NL it worked!

I can't enable the Spotify skill on Alexa. I paid for a Duo Spotify account so I could use one and we could have a separate one for Alexa to use at home.  But I've never been able to enable it.  The error in Alexa is "You are not eligible to enable this skill due to Geographical Restrictions".

 

My Spotify account and Amazon are both UAE.  I did try changing my primary address to USA as some suggested, but that didnt work.  

 

Anyone managed to solve this in the UAE?

Unfortunately none of the suggestions work. Alexa support also doesn’t help at all, and refer me back to Spotify

I still cant use Spotify on Amazon Alexa

I live in India but to make my Spotify work, I had to change my country to USA. But now I am unable to have my time zone changed to India without the country being changed. What to do?

Truly works like a charm!!

This is the solution that worked for me as of today. 6/5/2024

I bought a new echo for a neighbour. All set up but can't link it to their existing Spotify as alexa app states geographical restrictions.
I have the same echo for and mine has connected with out any issues. Any help appreciated.

This solution worked for me on Android. Once I opened Spotify app, it automatically showed a popup saying "Link to Alexa?" and I proceeded with the configuration. Also set Spotify as default.
