What is Spotify?
Spotify is the very first streaming service that allows you to listen to music online without downloading it to your computer. In addition, it is present on many modern devices, including the Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS operating systems, and the Spotify Connect function allows users to use a number of entertainment systems. Users, using the search, can find artists, albums, playlists, labels. Among other things, the service allows users to create, edit and share their playlists with each other.

Why is the application unavailable on Google Play, and the site can not register?
The service is currently officially unavailable on the territory of the Russian Federation. This is due to the requirements of the right holders - for each country where music is available, the service must enter into many agreements.
In the near future, the official opening of the service in Russia is expected. Until this happens, you can connect and use the service using the account of another country. How to do this is described in detail in our FAQ.

Android required: 4.1+
Russian interface: Partially
Developer: Spotify Ltd.

How to register in Spotify?
You need to use an account of some other country.
To do this, you need to use a VPN, and the IP address will have to correspond to the selected Spotify region.

Which country to choose for registration? What is the difference?
From the choice of country account will depend on the cost of a premium subscription, if you plan to use it. The cheapest region is the Philippines. More recently, other regions have been added to it, but they are not popular.
Subscription price in different countries
Also in different countries the volume of the library is different. The largest in volume are such Western European countries as Denmark, Sweden, United Kingdom.
More on the choice of the country will depend on the availability of national playlists in the recommendations on the main page.
More or less the average option for all criteria, was considered the United States. But lately this region has not been popular.
Opinion about choosing a country
Particularly noteworthy is India. . Not much because of the super low cost of a subscription, because Pay it from Russia until no methods have been found. How much due to the fact that in the free version all restrictions are removed in it, except the possibility of downloading tracks and switching to Very high quality. The price for this will be a music library cut by almost a third. You can say this is a good alternative to fashion.

Which VPN can be used to register a Philippine account:
ExpressVPN
Another free (broken) VPN with a large selection of countries
Instead of VPN, you can use free proxies:more

Unfortunately, you cannot choose a name recently. You can enter the application by e-mail.

Registration Instructions

Premium
What is the difference between premium subscription bespatnoy?
The free version has several limitations:
  • It is necessary to rejoin your account every 14 days using a VPN with the IP address of the country specified in the profile (USA / Philippines / Sweden ...)
  • Audio and video ads that sometimes play between tracks.
  • No offline playback, i.e. constant Internet connection required
  • Very high quality music mode not available
  • It is not possible to play a specific track from the list of most playlists, only random shuffle playback
  • The limit on the number of skips during shuffle playback

If I activated the trial for 7 days, downloaded albums, then after the premium expires, the offline mode will not be available?
Will not be. It works only for the time of the active premium.

Attention! In Crimea VPN is required even with a premium subscription.


Payment methods

The best payment method is to bind to a Spotify bank card. It is impossible to link a card of the Russian bank directly, so you need to use the methods listed below

Linking a Russian card to a PayPal account country (using the example of the Philippines)
Attention! According to incompletely verified data, due to the changed security policy of the Philippine PayPal, the following method may not work.

Purchase Gift Code
The merchant portals sell Gift activation codes for premium subscriptions for various periods (from a month to a year). For example onhttps://www.mtcgame.com/en-RU/spotify/premiumorhttps://www.seagm.com/...ify-gift-card-malaysia.
The purchased code is entered on the profile page.https://www.spotify.com/redeem/and the subscription is renewed for a specified period. The code can be entered with an already active subscription. When activating several codes, the subscription period is summed up.
Recently, the number of sites selling Gift codes has decreased dramatically.
Be careful when buying codes for a price that is much lower than the real cost of a subscription. Look at the rating of the seller and the date of registration

If, after all, you don’t get any way to pay for the premium - try to usefamily subscription.
Family subscription
What is a family and how does it differ from a normal subscription?
A family account is designed so that members of one family living in the same house use the service cheaper than if they paid separately. At the same time, recommendations and playlists for all family members are separate and do not interfere in any way. Subscription in the family is full.

Family subscriptions are used by different people who are not actually relatives to save on payment.
But since this is a violation of the rules of the service, if detected, Spotify can disband the family. After that, all members are transferred back to the free version.

In Spotify, each family member has his own account. The head of the family can not at any time go under the profile of one of the family members, if he does not provide him with a username and password.
People in the family do not communicate with each other, only through separate channels for communication.

The use of a family account has such advantages as saving on subscription and the absence of the need for payment, and the difficulties associated with this - money is simply transferred to the family husband in a convenient form, and it takes care of all organizational issues. But there are also disadvantages - the risk of disbanding the family and the difficulty of finding a good family leader.

If you received an offer to join the family, you should not immediately accept it. Rate the reliability of the family driver by looking at its profile. Do not trust newly registered users, or have a small number of messages. Better to trustactive users of the topic.
And absolutely it is not necessary to accept dubious offers. Proceed from the real value of the family subscription, plus the possible amount needed by the family for family management.

Search and set of families IN THE TOPIC is prohibited!

Approximate procedure for creating families

About the collapse of families
The topic has information about the alleged reason for the collapse of families, when a letter is sent to family members asking them to confirm the index, and then throws everyone out (despite the fact that everyone has confirmed)

When your acc was added to the family, in the bowels of the acc, so to speak, they entered the family index. When creating an acc index in the browser, you can write, you can not write, it does not solve anything. After that, you left the family and created on the basis of your acc family with a new address and index, but the index registered in the bowels of the acc from the old family has not disappeared, it is stored on Spotify servers. The family will always fall apart due to the fact that the new index of family members does not coincide with the old index from the old family. Now it’s clear why the whole family was disbanded at once, and did not throw out one person who did not contribute the index. The problem is 100% in the maternal account.

It is enough for family members to confirm the address in the letter and wait for an answer.

Mod version
What gives the MOD version:
  • Unlimited scrolling tracks on the radio
  • Unlimited scrolling tracks in playlists, selections, your library
  • Rewind track
  • The ability to re-listen to the track
  • Ability to listen to the previous track
  • Visual ad blocking
  • Audio ad blocking
  • The ability to play music using Spotify Connect (works in most cases only on tablets, phones, PCs and TVs with Android TV)
  • Ability to select any track from the list
What the MOD version does NOT give:
  • Very high quality not available , even if the item with the choice of extreme sports is active, you will not get 320kbit / s (and this is something for which you should definitely buy premium)
  • You can not play music on the receiver / column via wifi
  • MOD version does not cancel the need to re-enter VPN every two weeks (premium solves the problem)
  • You can not download music, even if the download slider is active (music is cached and does not spend traffic again, but listening to it in the absence of a connection (for example, on an airplane) will not work, you need a premium for this).

Since the service prohibits the use of modified program clients,there is a risk of account blocking.
How to hide the mod from the lock (root, Xposed)

When using the MOD version, there may be failures and errors in the program. If stopping and then turning on the program, rebooting, or logging in doesn’t help, delete this version, clear the cache and set the earlier one.
It is also recommended to check the service on your phone by setting the off version of the application.

An alternative to the mod version may be the official version.indian account, which already has all the mod functionality.

So it’s a natural sound, and all kinds of wipers artificially improve it, and it turns out synthetics, I don’t use anything like that in principle. You need to use at least normal headphones, not to mention the DAC, at worst, high-quality music

Maybe someone knows how you can see the playlist versions for a certain time.
Somewhere a year and a half ago on a repeat I listened to the All Out 80's playlist. He didn’t add any of the compositions to himself, and then he suddenly radically updated, all the tracks were replaced with new ones, nothing was left of the old one. Actually, he is like that today.

The question is, can I somehow see its contents a year and a half ago? Thank.

Most likely the matter is not in different phones, but in different design of playlists. Spoti practices this.
For the purity of the experiment, you need to compare the same playlist, on the same account.



Rep: (1)
* chernaya_molnia here, including what last.fm is for :)

No, of course, how do you imagine this?

By the way, there is nothing funny here. The Spotify API documentation features snapshot_id for playlists. A snapshot is a snapshot, or a cast of something. It is possible that spotify stores the history of playlists in its database. This is necessary for technical reasons - to resolve conflicts when jointly editing playlists. It also works for example Google Docs. Only ordinary users spotting these versions do not need them and therefore they cannot be accessed through the API, but technically it is quite possible.

* TakeOneDoor,
If there is no access via api, then how is it technically possible? I do not understand you



Rep: (1)
* orbitrus,
I have in mind the theoretical possibility of implementing this functionality.
A database is the core of any application. If some desired feature does not fit into the data model and the storage method, then this feature is practically not feasible. Or its implementation will eat a huge amount of resources and can break much more, which is almost the same thing.
But we’ll implement viewing the history of playlists (provided that my guesses about the data device in spotify are correct), but practically no one needs it. Therefore, this is not in the API. If a million users today signed up for such a feature request, they probably would have implemented it.



Rep: (24)
* TakeOneDoor , in my post I attached a link where you can view the web page of the playlist with snapshots at different times :)

Rep: (1)

And why is everyone so dragging on the music of the 80s? I have this least favorite decade. Rock is not the same; electronics is not the same. And metal flourished in the 90s too. Only in niche directions was there something interesting then. And the mainstream was sugary. Rick Astley is the quintessence of this sugary 80s sound. In short, for me, the 60-70s is like antiquity, the 90s Renaissance, and the 80s ... Well, you understand :)
