What do I do if Spotify is not available in my country?
Spotify is the world’s largest streaming music platform with 271 million active monthly users since about the end of 2019. Is officially not available in most countries including Nigeria, which I will list below as at March 2020 and there is no clear timetable as to when the service will launch in those countries. In this article, we’ll direct you on how to use it in Nigeria and countries that are not enabled.
Which countries is Spotify available in?
In 2018, South Africa was the very first African country in which Spotify is officially released and accessible to Android users on the Play Store, iOS users on the AppStore and their official website was active for signups. Though it is now also available in Lebanon, Jordan, the UAE, the KSA, Bahrain, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria, most African countries, including Nigeria, remain out of reach.
How to Use Spotify Everywhere
- Check Google Play or the iOS App Store for a free VPN app. So many VPNs like Tunnelbear, Cyberghost, or Opera Free VPN will appear, but you only need one of those listed VPNs You will also need to install VPN software to build a free account to start using it. Link your VPN device to the internet and select the location of either the US or UK.
- Enable your phone’s internet browser and go to spotify.com, set up a free account, and verify your email address.
- Download and install the Spotify App on your phone.
- Sign in with your email address and password into the Spotify_app.
- Open the app and enjoy your music.
Even spotify operates on the computer, so you can add them to your Windows or Mac device, but you’ll need VPN apps, too.
This is how spotify will be used in some restricted areas. If you have an iPhone, Apple Music will save you the hassle of using a VPN as it provides its streaming service in most countries.
