Ads are way too loud and i don't like having my hand forced into subscribing, i will if i enjoy the services, and i'm not enjoying spotify.

 

edit: nvm, i google'd this issue and found a fix in 2min using a block extension and updating the filters so it doesn't play ads anymore. I wouldn't mind if they weren't so loud.

Thanks for your help.

This was posted two years ago, and the issue still exists?? What is going on?! Seriously, every time I listen to music with my headphones, I have to toss them off before destroying my ears when an ad comes on! I don't even hear the ads because of this, but then I end up missing part of the next song, which is a HUGE annoyance! This NEEDS to get fixed ASAP, PLEASE!!!

Also, keeping the volume setting at 100% with Spotify isn't a solution. I often watch tutorial videos that I have turned up so I can hear instructions, and the music volume on spotify set low to play in the background when I pause the tutorial to take notes. Having Spotify at 100% all the time means I have to constantly adjust my computer's volume settings, which doesn't work for me. I'd be better off using a different service if this is the case. Please Spotify, get this fixed already, it's really off putting that it hasn't been fixed yet in the past years!

They are getting money from us, through the ads!

Thank you so much, this seems to have solved the problem for me! If I could, I would buy you a drink. I've suffered through this needlessly for at least two years now. Thank you again!

The solution pcman posted is working for me so far. Thank you, I am no longer suffering through that obnoxiousness.

The fact that this remains an issue years later is ridiculous. I'll be switching to using Google Play music and TuneIn radio unless/until this gets resolved. As others have noted, the blasting ads make me LESS likely to buy the products advertised as I associate the advertiser with being an obnoxious **bleep** and if I'm successful in my race for the mute button I can block out the ad entirely. It also makes me hate Spotify and makes me NOT willing to pay for premium - I'm not giving money to a company that has such little respect for their customers and uses tactics like this to force them into paying.

Again, this is not the solution. Tested on different platforms. The issue is Spotify is intentionally boosting the volume on these ads. I will be moving on to another service soon if issue is not resolved.

Am I the only one that stumbled here thinking Spotify does it on purpose to get to you look at the ad or notice it. I think this is a sleezy way they try to force you to notice an ad.

I am pretty sure it stays that way as it is.

Worrying tendency, really. I have that problem with the TV channels.
Watching some movie where there's this pretty quiet part and suddenly BAHH comes an ad for some damned toilet freshener and you almost **bleep** yourself and start to think whether to buy this movie or watch online without ads (piracy).

 

It's either people work their way around it, leave the service or tolerate it.

Without the volume problem Spotify ads are not bad.
