How to get (force install) Spotify if isn’t available in your country

If you’re at all familiar with the concept of audio streaming, you’ve probably come across Spotify — the most popular media streaming platform in the world. It hosts millions of songs, has a thriving online community, and recommends curated playlists based on your mood, or occasion.

Sadly, the music streaming service isn’t available in every region conceivable, so, people belonging to those precincts are forced to abandon the idea of enjoying Spotify and look for alternatives.

However, if you happen to be one of the few determined people, who are adamant about listening on Spotify, this workaround could come in handy.
