Push Notification Spam

 I have gone into Spotify's options and disabled EVERY possible notification tick box. I don't care about album releases, I don't care about playlists, nothing.

 

 

Earlier in the week and just now today I had a push notification from Spotify informing me about your current special premium rate. I don't care, I have no intentions of EVER giving Spotify money. But there's no option to disable spam on your app so it looks like I'll have to uninstall it instead. Is there a way to disable this or do you play on not doing this anymore?

Hi there and welcome to the community,

 

Have you disabled notifications within Android?

Go to Settings - Apps - then select Spotify from the list.. Then uncheck the 'Show Notifications' checkbox.

There is no checkbox or option for it.

 

 

Settings > Applications > Downloaded > Spotify > Nothing. The only options I have are storage related. Force Stop, Uninstall, Clear Data, (greyed out) Move to SD Card, Clear Cache, (greyed out) Clear Defaults. No option to block notifications.

Hi. Are you sure it's not there? Should be a checkbox right at the top underneath Force Stop.

Can you take a screenshot of the page or give some more details about your device if this option is not available.

I shouldn't need to dig through advanced settings to turn off spam from a premium service, the whole point of paying is to remove the spam. Actively seeking a recommendation on an alternative service.

I've started getting these too. I object to the suggest from support that I disable notifications, as though it's down to me to stop receiving them not to Spotify to stop seding them.

 

I've opted out of marketing, that doesn't mean you can find a back door to this and spam me that way.

On Android, you can disable all notifications for a specific app.  I have Android 5.1, and here's how I do it on my phone.

 

Go to Settings ==> Sound & Notification ==> Apps ==> Spotify.

Note: This is different than where everyone else in this thread is saying to go.

 

There should be a option to select "None - Show no notifications from this app."  This should solve the problem.

While that WILL disable ALL notifications from Spotify it shouldn't have to be done. I should be able to go into the application and turn off notifications and NEVER GET ANOTHER, ESPECIALLY an advertisement!
