[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

Hey @dmftaras!

 

This is a great idea. This is something I'd vote for!

 

I am marking this as a 'New Idea' so other people can begin to vote on it.

 

Have a great day!

-Tom

Dear Spotify,

 

This is truly outrageously bad customer service. People have been writing you about this issue for TWO YEARS. And all you have done is stonewall. NO ANSWER IN TWO YEARS. Maybe there is a reason why the country of origin cannot be changed. It would be wonderful if someone out there had the decency of telling the group of people who have been asking about this what is going on. In the next few days. Otherwise, honestly, I might consider switching to YouTube Red. You probably my don't care since I am one user amongst millions. That attitude might be the problem with your customer service.

Customer relations is unknown at Spotify. They don’t even have a contact option on their website

Do it! I just tried looking at "Top podcasts" and 18 out of 20 are podcasts from my country, which is not at all what I wanted to see and there's no way around it. Preferably I would like to see global top English podcasts, but I guess by country would work too if you can easily change it (filters/options near the list!).

It would be great if you could choose multiple countries/languages
