Hi @amadainmhor,


Thanks for reaching out to the Spotify Community about this.


Unfortunately, recommendations (including podcasts) are based on your country setting, in addition to your musical taste. I recommend that you save your favorite podcasts and music, such that Spotify will hopefully recommend content based on them. Bear in mind, though, that the country that you live in will continue to also contribute to the recommendations that Spotify gives you.


In addition, you can change the language of the app itself with the steps provided here.


Also, you might be interested in adding your vote to these related ideas in the Ideas section of the Spotify Community:


  • This idea for allowing to change the language of recommendations


  • This idea regarding allowing to change the country of recommendations



Or, if you have a slightly different idea in mind, feel free to post it here in the Ideas Exchange and read the guidelines for submitting Spotify Ideas.


You can read more about how feedback on Ideas reaches Spotify here.


I hope this helps, and let us know if you have any other questions.


Have a good day!
