EZBlocker is a simple-to-use ad blocker for Spotify that automatically mutes commercials.

EZBlocker automatically detects ads and adds them to a blocklist. You can also manually select adverts to remove by adding them to the “blocklist”.

There are no fancy features, just pure ad blocking. When an ad is blocked, only Spotify is muted, so no other sounds will be affected. EZBlocker aims to be the most stable and reliable ad blocker for Spotify.

There’s no setup required – just drag it into any folder and run. To upgrade your EZBlocker, simply replace the executable.

How do I use EZBlocker?
When you decide you want to listen to songs on Spotify, open EZBlocker. When an advertisement plays, EZBlocker will mute your Spotify. If you run into an advertisement that’s not muted, open EZBlocker and press the “Add Current to Blocklist” button.

EZBlocker is not muting Spotify (or other muting issues).
There may be issues with EZBlocker muting Spotify on your computer. If this is the case, uncheck the “Mute Only Spotify” option on EZBlocker. You can manually modify your Spotify’s volume by opening the “Volume mixer” by right clicking on the volume icon in your task tray.

I accidentally added an artist to the blocklist.
If you mistakenly add something to the blocklist, open EZBlocker and press the “Open Blocklist” button. Simply remove the line that you added and EZBlocker will automatically recognize the change.

EZBlocker is muting my local tracks.
If you have music that isn’t labelled correctly, EZBlocker may recognize it as an advertisement. When playing local tracks, uncheck the option “AutoAdd Ads to Blocklist.”

Can you make EZBlocker for Android/iOS?
EZBlocker for Android is available here. There are no current plans for an iOS version.

Is EZBlocker open source?
Yes it is, and I encourage all to contribute. The source & technical description is available on Github.

  1. Somehow your applciation mutes global instead of spotify only. How can I fix this?

  2. It work perfectly and detect properly the Spotify ads
    Thanks ! Great job !

  3. Thank you for it, it’s great:)
    Can you advice how to start it automatically with windows so that I don’t have to start it manually each time?

  4. Just got it, works great so far :D

  5. I’m on windows 8.1 and it works great. Love it, clever & straight forward.

    For anyone who says it outright doesn’t work, remember you often have to hit “Add Current to Blocklist” when an ad is playing or it might seem to be doing nothing if it doesn’t auto add it to the block list.
    Also if you’re doing that and it’s still not working make sure you run it from a user directory like a sub directory of your “My Documents” folder or the desktop. I tried running it in a directory i created inside of Program Files and for some reason it wouldn’t write it’s data files even with the proper permissions. Moving it to a sub dir of My Documents fixed that.

    I have noticed my machines start to get a little sluggish and for the App to lock up after using it for hours and hours, but I’m guessing that’s .Net choking on some unsafe memory build up or something not disposing properly. Doesn’t really matter because it usually makes it through my whole night and is a great way to avoid being deafened by fast food ads while still being a cheap f*ck
