My Question or Issue

Hello I was traveling out of the country a while back and used Spotify while overseas. My account information showed me as hailing from the US but (and I know this is a weird question) how are the streams for the songs I listened to counted? I was in the UK so do they count for the UK charts or US charts?This  has been bothering me for a while so I'd appreciate any and all help!

Hi there @user-removed,

thanks for reaching out to the community !


As a Free user you're able to use your Spotify account abroad for 14 straight days without it being needed for an upgrade (a Premium account allows it's users to use their account abroad without any limitations - you can find all the info here).


Your account is country based and that means that as long as it wasn't changed, it'll still show your country of origin no matter where you go.


Based on that, any activity happening on that same account will be added to the country listed in the account.


Hope this shed some light.

Let me know if you have any further questions 🙂
