Too Many Ads!!!

Casual Listener

I've noticed a serious ramping up of the advertisements Spotify plays. Seems like it's an ad every 2 or 3 tracks, whereas it used to be you could listen to an entire album and maybe only hear 1 or 2 ads. I'm not sure if this is more an effort to get people to sign up for Spotify Premium or simply a way to generate more advertising money. Regardless, it's super annoying and makes me want to go back to good ol' piracy as my primary way for listening to music.

Hey there and thanks for your question :)

Do not worry. I can help you with this issue.

 

Spotify pay to right holders. Every play is money for right holders and artists -- Spotify is legal service and artists and record labels are supported by Spotify payments. This way they can release more music and earn more money from streamings!

 

Thank you for using Spotify - you Support music You like!

Greetings,
Jyri

Remember that Spotify must pay for every  track that is played, therefore the free service is be funded by the advertisements

You could purchase a Spotify unlimited or spotify premium subscription if you do not want to be bothered by advertisements.

However, if you want to listen to music for free i am afraid you will have to tolerate the Ads.

I have paid for the premium account and still I have to pay to download music and I get adds.

Can I put at least the adds off? Otherwise I am not interested in a paid account.....

Hey! Welcome to the community :)


There are no adverts on premium or unlimited subscriptions, paying to get music as mp3's is standard since Spotify is a streaming service, and therefore you still need to pay for downloads if you want to own the tracks. 


If you have just upgraded recently, I would suggest you have a read at and try the steps outlined in this post.

There appears to be a delay in upgrades processing as Adam-W posted here a few minutes ago.

How come you have to pay for each song played? Isn't it where you just buy the song and add it to a computer which runs through the internet or something? I mean, why do you have to pay for each song played?

That's cool. So than how come so many ads, is that to earn money to pay the artists and everything?

Yes.

 

Spotify money are going from ads to employees payroll and for artists/recordlabels based to streaming plays.

 

Paid customers are paying those from their month fees.

 

Premiun is suggested because this way you can show love to music industry.

 

Thanks for using legal streaming service called Spotify.
