I deal with Apple Music execs daily for work they are def mobilizing to enter the visual content world. I havent heard anything like this in regards to Pandora. Hey maybe I heard wrong! Happy New Years!
I don't understand. I've been premium for almost a year now, and I haven't seen any ads whatsoever! No ads on the music videos, and no ads in the podcasts. If you're seeing ads, than you should chat with customer service. No one should be sing ads on premium. Second, I don't understand why people are complaining about the videos. It is inevitable that Spotify would do this, this is were all major streaming services are heading. Plus you can clearly see that the music and the videos are seperated. If you don't want videos, you don't have to watch them.
This isn’t strictly true. If you play popular playlist they include video too. Not separate at all. Not what you want on mobile when out and about thanks. Not sure where you get the ads bit, wasn’t something I mentioned. Ta
Those playlists may not be from spotify staff. I have never encountered videos in regular playlists. However, it wouldn't surprise me. They are doing all kinds of things to promote their content. Also the commercials may be injected by the content creator. If that's the case, there's nothing spotify can do.
@Spotify You need to deactivate this video stuff. It always tells me it can't play the video in my region. I don't want to watch videos, I'd like listening to the music. Or at least there must be an option under settings to deactivate videos (PC App)
