My Question or Issue

As a recovering alcoholic I really F***ING  object to one of the adverts played for a booze retailer which basically consists of some lady shouting a list of drinks, with not even a small warning to allow a skip.

It makes me want to stick my fist through the f***ing screen and go neck a large vodka. Thanks a-**bleep**ing-lot.

I understand Spotify wants to paid by both advertiser and consumer, but I think your should be slightly more discerning in what you allow to be used as adverts.

Hey @CHANNELZERO 

 

Thank you for the report. Could you let me know the name of the ad or describe what it was about? Could you also let me know a rough time/date you heard/saw it, the device you were using, and the version of Spotify you’re running? I’ll pass your feedback on. 🙂

 

There's also this Ad Filter idea you can vote for if it's something you'd like to see on Spotify.

 

Looking forward to your reply 🙂

Have a nice day!

Hi Sebasty,

 

I am running 1.1.31.703.g256add22 on a PC.

I cannot say what time the ads happen, it just pops up along with the rest.

Can't say I've paid attention to the particular company the ad is for either, as I've scrambled to shut it off, digging through open application windows / tabs  to get to it before the (annoying anyway) woman's voice keeps going on listing drinks. 

I'm in Australia, if that helps.   

 

I'd be thankful for an ad filter.

I'm not some sort of moralistic prude, but would like to be able to have some minor ability to avoid stuff which triggers (I hate that term) my previous unhealthy addictions.
