  1. I’m in France with the latest version of Spotify downloaded and I don’t have access to this feature. Even turning of the car mode. Why? Is it a US only feature?

  2. Nothing in Australia either although we pay top prices for Spotify here. What is the problem with a global roll out ?
    Think I will switch back to Apple.
