One day a stupid jumpascare surprised me give me a darn big panic attack, since I developed a kind of ptsd, phobia of jumpscare and bad memory, so when we have anxiety any kind of surprise can make psycologicaly sick, so no more spotify for me.
After experimenting for 2 days now, I have discovered the following:
If I use Spotify that I have installed locally on my computer, the extremely loud ads occur. At least a couple times in an 8 hr day.
Yesterday, I closed Spotify for the day on my local machine because I was fed up. I then used spotify player in the browser. The browser I used all day yesterday and today with the spotify player was Google Chrome. The ads continue. BUT THEY WERE NOT LOUD !!!!
Maybe this is a fluke....but for many hours now, I have not had an issue. I was excited and wanted to share !
