Thread235916602688511104629284653906656400

Status: Fixed

Description:

Excessive number of audio advertisements on Spotify free in the Desktop client.

 

To reproduce:

  1. Start Spotify and Log In using a free account.
  2. Number of audio advertisements can be excessive compared to amount of listened to content.

 

Workaround:

Reported less audio advertisements in the web player.

 

Additional information:

Reports of up to 12 adverts in a row before returning to content.

Forever repeating the same advert until client is restarted has also been reported 

 

If you are having either of these issues please can you post below:

  1. Your operating system (eg. Windows/Mac/Linux)
  2. Your Spotify client version (Help/Spotify > About)
  3. Your Spotify username as shown on your online account (this is not your email address!)
  4. A screenshot of your Play Queue > History tab would also be very helpful!

 

Thanks!

Over the last several days I've noticed a lot more ads, so I think this may be my problem. 
I'm having the issue on my work AND home computers.

On the home machine:

1. Windows 7 Pro

2. Spotify Version 0.9.7.16g4b197456

3. Spotify Username: 1274217029

4. Screenshot attatched. Hopefully you can see why I'm irritated at getting 6 ads, 1 song, and then another 6 ads....

 

I can update with my work computer info next time I'm there, if needed.
