How to Use Spotify on Android or iOS in India?


spotify in indiaSpotify is the great way to enjoy music. However, it is NOT available in India yet. So how can we find an easy way to play Spotify music without geographical restrictions?

As we know, Spotify is the best thing happened to music and its fans. Listening to Spotify music whenever and wherever you want using the Internet without downloading it is the best thing. It is the new way of how people have started listening to music. 

In this article, I’m going to show you how to get the amazing services of Spotify on Android and iOS in India.

We need a VPN ( virtual private network) before we can login Spotify account in India. What’s that for? When it comes to accessing content that’s geographically restricted by IP address (“geolocked” or “geoblocked”) like Spotify. so we need a vpn to show Spotify, like “hey, Spotify, I am living in the US (or other countries where have Spotify service) please let me login. 

Tips: A paid VPN service is much stable and faster than the free one.

Update: Do I always need to connect the VPN in order to enjoy Spotify?

I saw this question from the blog comments. Yes, you have to connect to VPN to play music on from Spotify if you are living in India. However, there is the way to convert Spotify to mp3 files. After you turn all Spotify playlist into .mp3 files, you can now play it on any device without the restriction of installing VPN.
