Does Spotify Have Ads?

Spotify is one of the largest music streaming service providers, with over 456 million monthly active users as of September 2022. It offers digital copyright-restricted recorded music and podcasts, including more than 82 million songs, from record labels and media companies.

Does Spotify have ads? Yes, it has, but the ads are just for free users. Spotify has a free version and a premium version. The premium version offers full features and has no ads, while the free version doesn’t include additional features, such as offline listening and commercial-free listening, and has ads.  

Why does Spotify have so many ads? In general, free users will listen to an ad or two between every 2-5 songs, contributing to Spotify revenue.

Why am I getting ads after every song on Spotify? Some Spotify app users may complain about this issue. This issue is a bug. Users can solve the problem by logging out and logging in twice. If this method doesn’t work, try clearing the Spotify app’s cache or performing a re-install.
