Spotify available in Trinidad and Tobago and my review

Earlier in the day, for the Spotify app, the app store said your device is not compatible with this version. For Spotify Lite and , I was greeted with not available in your country. When I tried again in the afternoon I was able to sign up at and install the Spotify app from the Google Play store. Before this rollout trinis would have to use a VPN to get access to spotify.
