Fast Forwarding Ads on Free Spotify

One thing I've found to bypass ads on spotify if you are changing songs and hit an ad, I've been using MusiXMatch, which will scroll through the lyrics of your previous song during an ad, I clicked above back to "..." and the ad rewinded, so I tested the app by clicking ahead in the lyrics, and the lyrics were fast forwarded to when they would have hit that part in the song were the song playing instead of the advertisement. So using the app finder, if you download MusiXmatch, you can use it to fastforward through ads in seconds instead of waiting for the ad to finally finish before playing your songs again. This, while getting ad revenue for Spotify, allows you to spend less time listening to advertisements, and more time listening to your favorite songs.

Unfortunately, I feel obliged to report this to the Spotify guys. I would imagine it will be a low priority issue though. ;)

 

Could you just confirm which app your are using?
