Advertising despite premium subscription

Advertising despite premium subscription

I have Spotify Premium and occasionally use the "Dailydrive" playlist.  There I am often played "Spotify Original" podcasts.  Lately it happens that small commercials are played.  So far only other "original podcasts" are advertised.  However, I fear that in the future, as with DAZN or Sky, it will be normal to play advertising despite premium subscription.  I find that rather worrying.  Where and how can I complain to Spotify about this practice?

Hey @nlarson,


Thanks for getting in touch with us 🙂


Spotify doesn’t play or include ads that interrupt the listening experience of Premium subscribers. However, some podcast creators may include third-party advertising, host-read endorsements, or sponsorship messages in their episodes.
