I can’t change my country on Spotify free
Moving to a different country can be a real mess.
Many web-services doesn’t offers the same rules on different countries, Spotify is one of these.
Spotify free accounts can reproduce music on different country for at most 15 days.
After this time, Spotify FAQ suggest you to change your country in the profile page but you don’t exactly have all the countries available..
I don’t know if it’s a simple bug or a wanted behaviour, but I’m not going to the UK and I want my account to be transferred in another country RIGHT NOW! (without having to register a Premium account and change my payment method)
This guide is made using Google Chrome, the same can be done with any other browser but the design will be slightly different.
1) Right click on the Country’s select and from the cascade menu click “Inspect Element”
2) Identify this part of HTML code and change the value of a un-selected country
On the Chrome debugger that should be now opened in the bottom, look for the following code and edit by double clicking the value of another country.
You can check available country codes on Spotify language page
If you don’t have two countries to begin with you can also manually add an additional option copying the syntax of your actual country omitting the attribute selected=”selected”
I changed “United Kingdom” value to “it”, Italian country code.
3) Select the other country and update your profile
You are done.
You can verify you are in the right country by changing your ZIP code in a valid one for that country (un-valid ZIP code will not be changed on profile save).
Right now you should be able to resume your listening in your new foreign country.
Have a good Spotify time 🙂
