A few days ago we wrote about Google Play Music, and how it can help you have access to your entire music collection when you travel.
But there was a problem.
If you aren’t in the USA, UK, France, Germany, Italy, or Spain, you would get a big fat error message when you tried to sign up for this great free service.
“The Google Play music player is currently available in select territories.”
Fortunately the solution is rather simple. We’ll show you how to use a VPN to sign up for a Google Play Music account anywhere in the world.

Signing Up For Google Play Music with a VPN
You can pick and choose your VPN service of choice, but in this instance, we’re going to use Witopia. By using a VPN to connect to the internet via another part of the world, we’ll trick Google Play Music into allowing you to sign up for an account.
Set Your VPN to Connect Via the USA
It doesn’t matter where in the USA, but typically you choose the location that is closest to you.
Head to the Google Play Music Website
Once you head over to the Google Play Music website, you’ll likely be asked to enter your Google account password.
Accept the Terms and Conditions
Go ahead and click on the “Agree and Next” button.
Download the Music Manager
Download the Music Manager so you can upload your music to the Google Play Music service. Be aware that you don’t need to be connected to your VPN to upload your music.
And You’re Finished. Great Job!
That’s it, you’re good to go. Now that you have successfully signed up, you no longer need to be connected to the VPN anymore. You can access your music, and upload your music from anywhere in the world.
Do you live in a country where Google Play Music isn’t available yet?
