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.

FAQ

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.

Why is my Spotify is permanently muted?
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.

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. I have confirmed that the latest Spotify, version 1.0.1.XX, has workarounds for EZBlocker (and other ad blocking). I will work on an update later tonight and will hopefully have a fix up within 24 hours.

  2. It no longer works after the new Spotify update, please update EZblocker, thanks.
