How to Block Ads on Spotify without Paying for Premium

Spotify offers both free and premium tiers of services like Pandora, Google Play Music. Anyone can listen to the fantastic Spotify without paying for a dime. But technically nothing is free, you have to bear the occasional Ads from Spotify.

No one likes ads interrupting their streaming music. The official solution to get rid of the Ads is by subscribing to the Premium. The $9.99 is not expensive for some users, but it maybe a big amount of money for some users. Honestly that is not a best solution. Is there another route to stop inappropriate ads on Spotify?

Yes, sure. A survey online shows over 2 millions of users suppressing advertisements without payment on Spotify. Now let me show you the top 2 ways on how to do that.

Part 1. How to Stop Annoying Ads from Spotify with a Plugin

Some hackers have developed kinds tools and methods to circumvent ads from Spotify. Such as changing the host file, setting us a proxy VPN, using an ad blocker. I have tried all these ways. An ad-blocking plugin called StopAd works best for me. I'd highly recommend it to you. It supports to block ads from the Spotify desktop client or web player.

Filter Ads in the Spotify Web Player

1. You just need to download and install StopAd plugin into your computer. Then it will block Spotify ads automatically on your browser.

2. If it doesn't, please check if the StopAd Web Assistant is enabled. Usually you will see a green hand icon in the bottom right corner of your browser. If it is grayed out, just click to enable it.

Block Ads on the Spotify Desktop App

1. After installing StopAd, you can go to the settings panel.

2. Click "Applications" > Click "Search app" > Type in "Spotify" > Choose the Spotify app and click "Add to filtering"


This plugin works great to stop Spotify ads on computer for free. But it can't get rid of Spotify ads on iPhone or Android mobile phones.
