Apple Music ‘This song is not currently available in your country or region’ Error – Fixes

Dig into your current Apple Music app settings to find out what's causing this issue.

Apple Music is one of the largest music streaming services in the world. But, it also comes with restrictions. While Apple Music is available worldwide, not all countries and regions enjoy the sophistication of the music app. It is quite evident when the playback issue with the error message ‘This song is not currently available in your country or region’ appears on your screen.


It may be confusing how a global company has some limitations when it comes to availability. The reason is that there are different licensing agreements on artists, copyrights and music labels in every country. Simply said, when a song is accessible in one region, it does not automatically apply that you can listen to it when you travel somewhere.

How to Fix “This song is not currently available in your country or region” Playback Error on Apple Music App

So, how do you workaround the geographical restrictions imposed on Apple Music? Well, there are ways you try to fix this error. However, the results may vary based on the reason why you have the problem in the first place. Still, you can find these solutions below.
