[Browse] Allow to change Country Origin Suggestions

Hi there,

 

I think many users get annoyed by those "local" recommendations that are based on the country that is chosen by their payment method.

E.g. I'm living in Europe, where English language is not local language, and I'm getting recommendations for the local songs, which I don't like, and I'd prefer English music over that, is there any chance I could change my country of recommendations to US or Canada? 

 

Thanks

Over 1000 votes in just over three years and still being ignored? I'm sure that there are many, many thousands out there who have simply looked at the recommendations, shaken their head and decided "I don't want to listen to this stuff. Spotify Premium just isn't for me" (in whichever language would be appropriate - this isn't an English music is better than everyone else's issue)

I consider a lack of this functionality is a bug. Implementing it, however, could be a feature that could drive some interesting advertising AND GENERATE REVENUE.

I can picture someone sitting in some dreary location suddenly transported to various musical centres around the world thanks to being able to choose the location of the recommendations in his Spotify account.

Really really need this one! Quite absurd that is not jet implemented.

I am Italian. I like en, sp, it music. I live in Germany and I never EVER listen to German music. Spotify keeps on giving me suggestion about the last German hits, top 10 in Germany etc etc etc TOTAL NONSENSE.

Yes! This! It's astonishing this is not implemented. Geographical location is not the same as language or culture preference. And like people here said, if someone wants to experience other countries' music suggestions and lists this should not be a problem. There is simply no reason to lock the user to the current geopositionally curated content.
