How to Mute Ads on Spotify (Android and Windows 10)

If you use Spotify as your primary music play app, then this guide is for you. Here we are going to share few effective methods to block Spotify Ads without Premium subscription.

Music streaming services have been around for a long time and will not be going away anytime soon. With that being said there are a large number of music streaming services available to choose from. You can choose between Amazon Music, Deezer, Apple Music, AudioMack, Tidal, Spotify, and others. Each streaming service is unique in its own way. Whether it’s about having a large library, better features, higher audio playback quality, or maybe just it’s simply a popular platform choice.

Out of the above platforms, Spotify is one of the most popular ones out there. Launched back in October of 2008 the platform has around 356 million monthly active users! Spotify has its own way of bringing in listeners with its subscription methods. It offers a free lifetime streaming solution coupled with ads. The ads kick in every 20 minutes of streaming music on Spotify.

Having ads after 20 minutes of streaming was fine back then when there just uses to be one or two ads. But if you take a look at it now, you almost have 4 advertisements that play around and it’s definitely annoying. And this is the reason everyone wants to block ads on Spotify. So, what do we do to get rid of these advertisements – purchase premium? Nah there’s another way to get rid of it, well, not completely but it does work only on Android.

So, whenever an ad plays Mutify will automatically mute the audio of such advertisements. Given that some ads are super annoying and they can be repetitive, it’s a soar at times to listen to these ads.

Mutify is a great way to mute these ads. The app is free to download, has no ads, and scores 4.7 stars out of 5. It’s a must-have app for those who love to enjoy the free version of Spotify and don’t care about buying the premium version. It’s better than using any unsafe modded versions of Spotify cause either they might have viruses and have backdoors to steal your information as well.

Mute Ads on Spotify in Android (using Mods)

Modded apps are popular nowadays, and you can find a mod version of almost any app. Similarly, there are some Spotify Mods available that allow users to enjoy Music streaming without triggering annoying ads.

Since Spotify uses an account to allow music streaming, the main problem of using the mod version is it creates a risk for an account ban. But there are some Mods that don’t seem to be affected by this problem as of now.

So, if you are using a Spotify Mod, we recommend using it on the secondary device as well as a secondary Spotify account. This may not be the perfect method to enjoy Spotify without ads as it has many risks.

How to Disable Ads on Spotify in Windows 10

You can close or minimize or and it’ll be present in the system tray.  Also, if you’re not able to get Ezblocker to detect Spotify, simply re-open the software again.

Pay for Spotify Premium

Spotify is a popular music streaming service that is available on almost every platform. The app has an easy and interactive user interface that makes it better than any other available music apps. But to run any streaming services, they need a budget for it. Also, Spotify doesn’t charge much as compared to some other services offering Music streaming. So, we recommend picking the premium subscription to get rid of Ads.


These are the only ways to mute ads on Spotify for both Android and iOS. However, if you aren’t the type of person who would just want to install an extra app to mute notifications, you might be better off simply purchasing the premium subscription of Spotify that not only removes ads but also allows you to download and stream in the highest quality available.
