Although these ads will be automatically muted, the screen will still appear, so it would be best if you can remove the ads. The TuneSolo Spotify Msuic Converter I recently used can download songs, so I can avoid ads and don't need to subscribe to Spotify Premium.
i downloaded this about an hour ago and it would just silent the ads, not skip them. i tried deleting it and said it was open but i couldn't figure out how to close it no matter what i did. after this i got logged out on all my devices and my password was incorrect. listen, this has never once happened before and i’ve had this account for YEARS. i was able to get back in but don’t download this..
I've loved using this app until about 2 weeks ago, would have rated it 5 stars. Then while using my Spotify app, it would go silent for the ads, but then not play the next song. So I think Spotifree might be a broken (perhaps orphaned?) app now. I'm using the latest macOS 10.12.5 and the latest version of Spotify. I wasn't able to find any newer version of Spotifree than from 2015.
Spotifree is one of my essential installs for OS X. I listen to Spotify all day at work. Spotifree auto-mutes the audio ads for me so I don't have to press the mute button on my keyboard. Banner ads still appear and you will have a period of silence while the audio ads play muted. Spotify still gets ad revenue because the ads are playing... you just can't hear them. I feel using this software creates a win-win situation for Spotify and consumers.
