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.

I have an Asus ME 173x with Bluetooth headset. I sometimes have to restart my device to get it out of mute. I can see the progress bar playing and can’t recover. Ideas? Otherwise thanks for your amazing work on this!

Awesome program. Would be nice if there was a toggle to disable the taskbar notifications, they can be a bit distracting.

I installed it and followed the instructions, and it isn’t working on my phone. I still can listen to the ads

Does it affect what country I’m using Spotify from? Maybe the ads I get here, aren’t blocked?

Hey! Thanks for releasing this! It’s awesome to listen to my Spotify music without interruptions by any ads! I had one question though! Do you have to go into EZBlocker everytime to launch Spotify in order for this to work? Or can you just open Spotify on your home screen or app drawer and ads would still be muted? Thanks!

Hey, thanks. But why have you included Google Analytics tracking code? Is that necessary?

Is it normal for ezblocker to randomly close itself when adding songs to my playlist? Happens every time I add a song to my playlist.
