Hi @dma555,

 

yes, I get your point. It would be nice if users can choose a default language for podcasts, audiobooks or music suggestions in the language they prefer.

You can vote for that idea here

Maybe you can add a comment under that post / idea that the reason you vote for it is mainly podcasts and audiobooks (since the original post / idea is more about local recommendations for music).

Good luck and have a nice day

I voted for the idea.. this seems to be an old issue with no solution yet.

 

Why would Spotify assume everyone living in some country speaks a certain language is beyond me. German is literally meaningless to me and I am not able to properly search the audiobooks.. This shouldn't be a feature request but rather a bug fix, as we are not allowed to use features we already pay for.

Hello everyone, very sorry to hear you all experience this!
The cause for this issue may be that some songs/audiobooks are not available in certain regions. The availability of content in certain regions are selected by the Artist/Record Label or in this case the Author. Region limitations could be because of marketing reasons or copyright laws.

I’d recommend reaching out to the Author or Spotify for more help with this. You can find some more info here on how to do this. I hope this helps!

Have a nice day!

sorry but I cant believe this is a valid reason not to provide a feature letting us choose the podcasts language.
I was looking for an English podcast, I typed in the name and I found it immediately.

it would be a pity to miss out so much good content in English, no matter where you are from.

I consider this a major design flaw. I want to see books in other languages than German and I don't want to go through loops and faking of my address for this.

I can't believe Spotify never fixed this issue (the topic is from 2016) and didn't even bother to reply.

your customer service seem to be quite poor, honestly said.

This is a bug that ruins the Spotify experience of many users.
