Best Spotify ad blockers in 2024

Jan. 2024 Updated

Spotify offers a free version of their service that is supported by advertising, and a premium version that is ad-free but requires a paid subscription. Some users may find Spotify ads annoying but can't afford the Spotify premium cost. While Spotify Premium is the official way to get rid of ads on Spotify, there are also several ad-blocking extensions and tools available for web browsers and operating systems to block or bypass Spotify ads. We will introduce them in this article. However, it is important to note that using ad-blockers on websites or applications, including Spotify, goes against the terms of service of the respective platform, which may result in account suspension or termination.

Spicetify itself is not an ad blocker.

Part 4 Spotify ad blockers for iOS

Currently there is no Spotify ad blocker app for iOS. Alternatively you can use a modified Spotify app: Some modified Spotify apps like Spotify++ claim to offer an ad-free experience for free. However, it's important to note that using modified apps is against Spotify's terms of service, and there's a risk of account suspension or termination.

Spotify++ used to be available to get from AppValley for free, however, currently it is exclusive to AppValley VIP users(8.99/month or $29.99/year). We don’t have VIP so can’t test whether it works.

If you really wanted to you could use SideStore to sideload a cracked Spotify IPA onto your phone. All you have to do is install SideStore to your phone with Mac/Windows and then download the cracked IPA onto your phone. Then install the cracked IPA inside of the SideStore app and remember to refresh every 7 days. You also need to install WireGuard VPN app, which is available in your iOS App Store. For detailed steps, check how to install Spotify++ on iOS.


Part 4 Spotify ad blockers for Android

Spotmute or Mutify

Android users don’t have actual Spotify ad blocker app either. However, the workaround is that there are 2 Spotify ad mute app: Spotmute and Mutify, which automatically mute the volume whenever the commercial rolls in. As soon as the commercial break ends, the volume turns back up for you to continue enjoying your favorite music. Note that neither of those two is recognized as an ad blocker, so your account is safe, and you won’t get banned.

Spotify Mutify

Whenever Mutify detects an ad is playing on Spotify, it helps you turn down the volume of the ads automatically, so that you can sit back and enjoy listening to your favorite music without worrying about those annoyingly loud ads.
