When would these features be available?

Both PFP NFTs and Music Zone were added to QQ Music’s alpha test version. These features are available for Android users starting Monday.

However, the official launch of both features is scheduled for Wednesday.

Is QQ Music available outside China?

No, the app is not available outside mainland China. However, you can use a VPN to change your location by connecting to a Chinese server. Then, you can access QQ music by going to this link or downloading the app on your Android/IOS device.
