[Discover] Set a language for Discover & Recommendations


I would like to select multiple languages and get all the material attached to it. For instance, I have a French account and when I go to the Hip-Hop section, New Albums, a lot of French albums are listed (like intended) but not all English albums (someone with an English account would obviously get more). And finally, I'm German speaking but not one album is shown, I have to look them up on my own. Let us select the languages we want content from.

Edit: This idea has been reposted here.

Your idea was submitted a while ago and unfortunately didn't receive the amount of kudos needed to stay active in the ideas board (100 Kudos per year). 

In order to keep the Ideas Exchange clearer I'll close this idea for now, but this doesn't mean Spotify rejected this idea.

If you think this is an idea which needs to be implemented, you're welcome to post it in slightly different again 🙂


Have a nice day!

Marked as new idea.


As French living in Germany I support this features! I want to have French podcasts!


This choices could justify to keep my premium account

I get this weekly recommendations play list. and for some reason there is a lot of Russian music even when I have never listened to any Russian music out of free will. And I live in Finland. Russia is our neighboring country but we in Finland do not listen to any Russian music unless you have some roots there. We are not Russian speaking people. We have our own language and have a difficult history with Russia. So please be a bit more careful with these kind of music recommendations. Let the users select what language music they want to listen. 


It should really be part of the standard functionality to be able to change the country for which you get suggestions. As resident in the Netherlands, I do not want to get suggestions for Dutch music per se.

Please make this happen. I'm an expat in Thailand and the music selection under browse is not even marginally interesting to me.

As a non German speaking person living in Switzerland. We bought a spotify account to STAY IN TOUCH with the REAL music scene in the WORLD. We do NOT & WILL NEVER APPRECIATE any form of GERMAN music and yet that is what we are mainly SUBJECTED TO in our subscriptions.

MANY expats live in ONE country before MOVING to another country every few years - therefore WHY ARE THERE NOT OPTIONS e.g. A GENERAL mainstream music option for such people???



Come on make it happen!

I used to live in Canada and have now moved to Switzerland, thus I had to change my country in the settings as well...unfortunately now all of the suggested podcasts and charts etc. I used to enjoy listening to are gone 😞


I was so disappointed and still absolutely miss the Canadian content! I do not care for the Swiss content at all, since I neither like their language nor their artists and want to keep listening to English podcasts and charts, as well as dicover/get recommendations for new content in English...


Please enable this feature! I would be so grateful!  

It would make Spotify so much more enjoyable for foreigners!

I'm having exactly the same problem. This would be a great feature!

IT IS NOT NEW. Just WAKE UP! English should be the MINIMUM language option PLUS all local country languages (SWITZERLAND has FOUR OFFICIAL LANGUAGES and a HUGE % of EXPATS coming & going) therefore it is only necessary for people to be able to use their accounts properly if companies like SPOTIFY, APPLE/MICROSOFT start offering the services as NEED by THE CUSTOMERS that ARE PAYING.

*Also why ISN'T it EASIER to UPVOTE the COMMENTS on this page?????????


Come on SPOTIFY LEAD THE WAY AND THE OTHER BIGGIES MIGHT FOLLOW SUIT - inter-language optionsas minimum !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😘
