How can I use Google Play Music in a country where the service is not available? I don’t want to use my credit card information, is there another way?

    Unfortunately a service like Google Music will require a credit card and only in the certain number of countries then. I know that feeling. It's about time that Google and Microsoft extend their services to more countries than just USA and Europe.

      I live in Belgium, so we have Germany and France around us who can use "the store"
      I guess it wont take long untill the service will be available here.
      The google music service seemed very interesting to get the music collection i have on my computer on google since i use it's services very much.

    You can use a US-based VPN like TunnelBear ( ). Access the Google Music website while connected through the VPN and you can activate Google Music for your Google account. You can then disconnect from the VPN and use Google Music normally to sync your music, no matter where you are in the world.

    (Note: This won't allow you to purchase music unless you have a US-based payment method, as far as you know. But the free features work great!)

      Hey Chris,
      Thank you for your reply.
      I've connected to to the google music website with tunnelbear. (
      It gives me an agreement for Terms of Service and privacy Policy wich i "Agree and next"

      Then i get a pop up screen that says:

      Availeble in limited regions

      Music on google play is currently available in limited regions. To verify your country of residence and set up your account, pleasy complete the free transaction below. You will need to add a credit card, but your card will not be charged.

      So... i guess there's no way getting around this right?

        That's really weird. I did this a few months ago and it worked for me (in Canada). It's possible they added a more strict verification process, unfortunately...
