Spotify with VPN on Android

S

Spotify is my go-to app when it comes to music streaming. It’s free, it has a good collection of music. But unfortunately, Spotify is not yet available in India.

There are several tutorials in the wild that lets you set random wallpapers with Tasker. But most of the tutorials have a common drawback: you need to name the wallpaper files in a certain fashion (mostly with numbers).
