Ads in podcasts when using premium

Ads in podcasts when using premium

I have a Spotify premium account. While listening to podcasts recently, ads have been playing during and between some of the podcasts. They are not embedded within the podcast, they are being played as separate entities (see picture). I have tried logging out and back in again, performing a clean install of the app, and unregistering devices.

Hey there @_jimjam21_,


Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community!


Apologies for the delayed response, we just came across this thread.


While Spotify doesn’t play ads that interrupt the music listening experience of Premium subscribers, some podcast creators may include third-party advertising, host-read endorsements or sponsorship messages in their episodes.


For more details on ads you see like in your screenshot, we'd recommend taking a look at this Spotify Answer.


Hope this clears things up! If there's anything else we can help with, don't hesitate to give us a shout.


Have a lovely day 🙂
