Moved abroad permanently

Casual Listener

Hi,

 

I moved from the Netherlands to the UK. My Free Account stopped working. Will it start working again by changing country to UK and entering details of a UK payment card?

 

Thx,

Toni

Hey! Welcome to the community 🙂 

 

As far as I am aware you shouldn't need to even enter your Payment details to change your country. It should change based on your IP address location. I would suggest you follow the instructions on this page. 😉

Hi Peter,

 

Thank you - I'm spotifying again. 

 

Just thinking that if you would only need to change your country, people traveling around on a free account could just change their country settings all the time, and there would be no need to upgrade to premium for access abroad.

That is a good point, I am not really familiar how the system works so I don't know. My guess is there is a limit on how many times you can change it! You would also need to purchase a subscription if you where travelling to a country where Spotify is not available.

You can download spotify from m.spotify.com and should be good to go.

Hi,

 

I moved from the US to Taiwan permanently and my Spotify stopped working. What should I do to keep using the free version?

Spotify Free is available in Taiwan, all you should need to do is update your country here:

I've moved country too and I'm unable to change my country without re-subscribing to Spotify. Unfortunately I can't afford a subscription at the moment so this does not make me very happy. 

 

I've been a customer for years, I don't see why I should be locked out of my account because I had to move.
