How to enable Google Music outside USA

You should change the network settings on your computer and make it look like you are surfing the web from a US based IP address. There are many ways to get a US based IP address:

  • VPN service. There are many VPN service providers for free or for a fee on the internet, you can search "VPN service + USA" on Google.
  • HMA extension: You can install Hide My ASS extension on your Chrome browser, and then select the USA web proxy server in the extension options. More information about HMA »
  • TunnelBear: Download TunnelBear and install it, sign up for an account, and choose the location of the content you want to access. They have a limit of 500MB for free accounts, but to sign up for a Google Music account you won’t need more than a few MB of the available bandwidth.
  • Tor
