Imitate different country?

Solved!

Imitate different country?

My Question or Issue

I live in Austria (We speak German), but I want to listen to American music. Don't understand me wrong I love the language, but not the music. It is so annoying I always get playlists with German songs in there, which I don't like. Is it possible to change the country for the recommendation algorithm? I have also tried a VPN from the US, but still getting the Austrian charts recommend. Unfortunately I don't have a American credit card and therefore I cannot change the country in the Spotify settings.

 

Plan

Premium (Family Plan)

 

Country

Austria

 

Operating Systems

Android, Windows 10, Ubuntu 18.04

Hi there @Alwinator,

thanks for reaching out !

 

The content presented to a user is based on their country of origin.

Unfortunately, there's no option of changing the recommendations created based on the country listed.

Note: Using VPN with Spotify isn't recommended

 

However, this idea was raised before, so make sure to read more about it and add your +VOTE here.

 

I would also like to refer you to this thread discussing the same matter.

 

Hope this will shed some light.

Let me know if you have any further questions 🙂
