Spotify is a Swedish DRM-based music streaming service, it’s one awesome music service that everyone loves to have it. But unfortunately its available for only US and some European users. Here we have a little workaround by which you can enjoy the service in India too.
1. Spotify Invites :
We will make use of the US Spotify invites to get in to the system. There are many services which gives away Spotify invites for free. Here are some websites from which we can get invites.
After clicking the Klout link, create an account in their site using your Facebook/Twitter account details.
Once you complete the registration, Klout will ask for a US zip code to offer Spotify invitation code. For US zip code, you can Google for random codes or enter “13607”, one US zip code which works well.
When you enter the zip code, you can see the unique invitation code with which you can get access to the Spotify for US users.
2. Accessing Spotify.com as US user :
Here comes the trick which hides our IP address from Spotify and helps us to register our account for free. There are lots of sites which support anonymous browsing. In our case we will use HideMyass.com . This specific site supports browsing as US and UK user.
Step 1 :
Go to that site and consider to paste http://spotify.com/invitation in hidemyass.com and it will open the Spotify.com as an US user.
Paste the invitation code that you got from Klout.com and press Continue.
Step 3 :
After entering the code, Spotify.com gives you access to create a new user account.
Step 4 :
Once you’re done, you can download the Spotify app for your Windows/Mac.
3. Making use of Spotify app
Open the app you are prompted with the login screen where you can enter the credentials to login to your account.
The app opens with access of thousands of albums. You can almost find any albums and in any language.
We are excited to find tons of Indian albums in almost all famous regional albums. The best part of the app is it supports Facebook connect which gives access to share playlists with your friends. This app also supports e-mail, Twitter, Facebook sharing of song.
Spotify is worth giving a try. Try it and let us know what you think. Share this trick with your friends and enjoy sharing playlists.
