Commercials, they are different from Spotify country to country.

 

If you have only the same, there is no more ads currently in your area.

I've also been listening to only two ads for the last couple of months

1) Acoustic Rooms compilation, featuring Justin Bieber etc

2) Fuze Tea ASMR compilation

I freak out with both of them, especially the 2nd one is upsetting me since the first time I've hear it

 

I need to make it very clear that I have never heard ANY OTHER ADVERT for two months now or more. It's gonna be the Bieber Compilation, or the ASMR, or both of them. I've only been listening to these 2 extremely annoying (for me personally) ads every single day, every 30 mins or so, FOR 2 MONTHS, this makes me feel like I'm being punished for something. When the ads starts playing, I'm throwing my headphones away, and I'm asking myself why do I keep doing this to myself, allowing an app to make me feel so miserable and ruining my mood. I know its a free app, but that still doesnt make it right

 

Actually I have been experiencing this pattern for quite some time (about a year or even more) with different couples of ads each period. It's the same over and over again for a period of a few months, then these 2 ads will get replaced by something else. I used to cope with this before, but this time my '2 ads pusnishment' is too much for me.

 

This is even worse when I'm using my desktop app, which tends to play ads more often than the browser app

 

This has been an extremely negative experience for me

Could this be related to the fact I haven't linked my Facebook account, and Spotify is unable to suggest any personalised ads? Or opted out of Spotify accessing your Facebook data for comercials?

 

Just wondering, if anybody else is experiencing the '2 ad curse' and reading this, are you guys using FB or no?

Hi Peter,

I'm the one who suggested the solution for the other post.

It looks like this combination of options (tailored ads + no facebook) makes your code go for a fallback functionality or service that is prone to return the same commercials over and over again.

 

Might be worth having your team investigating this, because I really doubt this is a desired behaviour
