Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro
My Question or Issue
I have activated free 1 month trial for Spotify Premium to try it out. I have been using Gaana Plus for long but I think Spotify is better and I was thinking about switching. But when I was adding all the tracks (the tracks I used to play in Gaana) in my Spotify library I noticed that tracks from Charlie Puth are unplayable. When I search for the artist I can find him on Spotify but there are no tracks available in the list. Only covers from different artists for his tracks are there. I could play them in Gaana but why those tracks are unavailable in Spotify India? This is a letdown cause I love his tracks. I would like to know if there is anything I could do to play those tracks in Spotify cause I can see those tracks in a playlist but can't play them and that's a bummer for me. And I am just in the 2nd day of my Spotify Premium trial.
Edit:- I have been adding all my favourite songs and I found many of them (also from other artists like Nicki Minaj, David Guetta) are missing (Unplayable state) in Spotify. I don't know wheather it's a licencing or device certification issue or not.I am having most of my issues with English (some Indian tracks too) tracks. I don't think Spotify Premium will worth the high price (double the price of Gaana Plus) with all missing (unplayable) tracks. I hope Spotify can soon add them.

Ok I got the perfect answer for this issue!
It's about the clash of Spotify India and Warner.
Hey again, @RockStar8
I know it's disappointing, but the only reason that make your favorite songs unvailable just in India is that some artists and tracks are not yet available (or are in one country but not in another).
There are some possible reasons for this. It may be that we have not yet reached an agreement with the artist or the label, or that copyright ownership has been transferred.
Spotify had been available in India just a few days ago, so it's completely normal that issues like those appear for now. I know it is unsatisfactory, but I ask for your patience, because as soon as possible, everything will be in your place...
Spotify is working to make possible that you have the best sound experience in India, just like what already happens in other countries.
