Now when I finally found the app (Spotify) which i was looking for, to my biggest surprise I encountered the error that read thus "This item is not available in your country".

I was greatly infuriated...but having the idea that the same Spotify Music is fully available in the United States, I thought of the best method to bypass that error and right there and then, it suddenly struck my mind to use a VPN application which is capable of faking my location. And Boom! The idea worked like magic after trying it. The benefit of the method we're going to use below is non other than it works both on rooted and non-rooted android phones thus you won't be left out if perhaps you haven't gotten a chance to root your smartphone.
