How I've Been Using Spotify in Kuwait

While tons of apps are made available worldwide, it still sucks that there are some great ones that aren't. Spotify is a popular audio/video streaming service that has been out for quite sometime now and while it's slowly opened it's availability to some Asian countries more recently, the Middle East has yet to be acknowledged.

However, where there is a will there will always be a way! When I found out this little trick that allows you to use Spotify and other apps not made available in your country, I was so excited and knew I had to share it with you guys!

Disclaimer: I'm still unsure if this is totally legal but I've been using this method for almost a month now and it's been going smoothly so I figured it's okay?? Please let me know in the comments if you have further thoughts about this, please!


Step 1: You will need to download a VPN! The one I personally use is called Betternet (available for both android and iOS) and I highly recommend it. It's free and gives you unlimited hours of use!




Step 2: After installing the app, you'll see a screen similar to the one below. Since I knew I wanted to use my VPN primarily for streaming, it's what I chose.




Step 3: Once that's out of the way, just press to install your profile (no personal information is asked) and allow the app to add VPN configurations.




Step 4: Once that's done, the screen below is what you will now see every time you open up the app! I like to activate my connection only when I'm using Spotify, otherwise I turn it off because I have noticed that it eats up my battery so I recommend you do this too! :)



Step 5: Welcome to a world with no boundaries! Aside from Spotify, I've also been using Betternet with an app called go90! Currently, my favorite things to watch there are Betch and T@gged!

As long as that little VPN icon (displayed at the top of your phone's screen) appears, you're connected and good to go!

Technology advancements right now both scare and fascinate me and leave me thinking if there is anything else the Internet cannot do?! I hope you're all having a nice start to your week!
