FAQ

Why aren’t ads being muted?
Did you enable EZBlocker in your Accessibility settings? Also make sure you don’t have Spotify in the foreground. EZBlocker only activates when the Spotify icon is visible in the notification bar. Read the installation and usage instructions above. In rare cases, some ads may slip through EZBlocker’s filter. Leave a comment below if this happens.

Will EZBlocker slow my phone down or drain the battery?
Probably not. EZBlocker takes minimal RAM and CPU usage and only runs when Spotify is active. It’s footprint is roughly ~20% that of Spotify’s. Newer devices will not notice a difference.

Is EZBlocker for Android open source?
It will be eventually. Right now, EZBlocker for Android is still in its testing phases, so the code is pretty messy and undocumented.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for your great work. Unfortunately it stopped working with latest Spotify release. Do you plan to release any update?

Many thanks!
Ben

It should automatically add all ads to the blocklist, including anything that it doesn’t detect as a song on your playlist. Even if Spotify updates the client.

Stop working on spotify, cant block any song!

EZBlocker stopped working today……..

any fix?

did Spotify get wise to us?

Hmmmmmm……. let me know– need some blockage!!!!

Why does my phone says you/or the app can read all the text I type?
Is that just something it recognizes in the code or are you just spying on all of us…. No offence of course, because I love your app!

Any update here Eric?

I have the same question

Awesome, thanks man.

Eric…ezblocker for android doesn’t work as well as u can expect. In Settings, to put it on with the switch, 2 warnings appears. One says “change the language TTS” and it’s a problem ’cause TalkBack actives itself. Boring. And if you desactivate that function, EZ stops working and beautiful ads appears.

Anycase…Congratulations man.

Wonderful! Works great and is easy to use – saves me a lot of sanity…

Auto-update would be nice, but I really cannot complain. Great work!!!!

Hey, just downloaded it and it’s working great so far. Thanks for the reply back.
