Trying to join my family's account from home but Spotify thinks I'm in the wrong country?..

Casual Listener

Plan

Family Premium (trying to join-- for now I'm still on the free account)

Country

France

My Question or Issue

My father started a Family Premium account a few weeks ago and sent us the link to join. I have since then been trying to join it from my existing Spotify account but everytime I try it tells me I'm trying to join from a different country. I can get through the address process and everything, but when I click 'continue' after entering the address it tells me I'm in the wrong country. But I'm not in a different country, I'm in the exact same home where my dad started the account!.. And everyone else in my family was able to join the account easily.

I've tried from every phone and computer I could find, same answer everywhere. I've also tried with private navigation and non private navigation, same answer everywhere. I even checked the default country on my Spotify account and it's France so that shouldn't be a problem... What can I do? At this point my sister is telling me to start a brand new account from scratch but I don't want to lose all my playlists.

Thanks in advance!

Hi there @GeeSV,

thanks for reaching out to the community !

 

Could you please use a PC or MAC and try out the process on a different browser / incognito web page ?

 

Let me know how it goes 🙂

Hi,

 

Thank you for your answer. I have tried from both my phone and PC, as well as several other PCs. I've tried with 2 different browsers, in incognito and not incognito. Same answer no matter what I do, I'm in the "wrong county"...

Here's the window that pops up:

Hi @GeeSV

Thanks for bearing with me and sorry for the delay !

 

As your account is showing the correct country on settings, it might be possible that there's another account causing the issue.

 

I would advise you to double check with your father to see if his country settings are showing different - you can use the steps here to make any necessary updates.

 

Let me know how it goes 🙂
