[Solved] Spotify Can’t Change Country, Why & How?


    Spotify Free or Spotify Premium users always come across different problems while enjoying Spotify music while traveling. These problems occur mainly due to the country restrictions imposed by Spotify. All these problems have solutions, and today we’ll be discussing few methods that you can overcome this restriction. But first, let’s take a look at the reasons why you are not allowed to change location in Spotify.

    Reasons why you can’t change Spotify country

    Spotify restricted location changes mainly to prevent system abuse. If they allow changing the location at will, many users misuse it and access the restricted content. Also, free accounts are not allowed to be used while traveling, and without any verification, Spotify now doesn’t allow users to change the location. The main verification Spotify considers is the payment method. If the user has traveled to a different country, the user needs to have a valid payment method that belongs to that country. When the user can update the new payment method, Spotify can verify the new location; else, you’ll be denied access. Users who don’t like to update the payment method in Spotify can contact Customer Support in Spotify and ask them to update it on behalf of you. Remember, adding a new payment method doesn’t charge you until the next payment cycle. So there is no fear of getting charged again.
