Eliminate Spotify Advertisements + Complete Server List
##################################################################################
# ELIMINATE SPOTIFY ADS (VERSION 1.2 - 8.5) - UPDATED FREQUENTLY #
##################################################################################
#
# NOTE: SOMETIMES ONLY ANNOUNCEMENT OF AN AD WHILE USING APP VERSION 7.5-7.9?-8.x.
# USING AN OFFICIAL OLDER VERSION SOLVES THIS. TEST IT (APKMIRROR). THIS WILL NOT
# OCCUR USING CHROMECAST / GOOGLE HOME.
#
# COULD NOT SOLVE THE AUDIO AD INRO/OUTRO IN THE APP.
# SUGGESTIONS? WRITE A COMMENT BELOW.
#
# ALSO WHEN USING CHROMECAST DO BLOCK THE GOOGLE DNS SERVERS: 8.8.8.8 AND 8.8.4.4.
#
# **I've analyzed the Spotify network. Assuming you are using a(n) (ad block)
# hosts file on your computer or router, most advertisement site are already
# blocked. I did not test Spotify by solely blocking these hosts since I also use
# another hosts file to block generic advertisement sites.**
#####################################################################
# I WOULD SUGGEST TO NOT BLOCK THE FOLLOWING HOSTS CONTAINING #
# for linux use grep -ivf allowed.txt blocked.txt > blocked_new.txt #

# SPECIAL NOTE FOR WINDOWS DESKTOP APPLICATION #
################################################
# (*) Block spclient.wg.spotify.com while using destop application (it will break social features, the Android app and Chromecast).
# An alternative solution is to block the 35.186.224.0/24 IP-range (outgoing) but it also breaks Android functionality,
# yet keeps the friends feed untouched.
#
# Will test other hosts to prevent blocking this, so it's compatible with all devices.

At this moment I do experience one problem using Spotify for Android. Ads are being blocked but there is an announcement of advertisements every 30 minutes, and a "thank you" message afterwards. It only occurs in newer app versions. This one needs to be solved. On Chromecast devices there's not a single issue, at least in my case. I have the 2nd Gen, not the Ultra.

I again emphasize that you need to block the Google DNS servers (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) in your routers' firewall while using Google Chromecast. Another option is to block outgoing communication from LAN to WAN, UDP port 53.

Note: Did not test the web player with the default block list. I'll do this later. Using iOS? Replace 0.0.0.0 by 127.0.0.1.


Additional Information Regarding the Windows Desktop Client / Web Player

Also credits to @ChronusDev🙇 for his input by commenting and testing

As @ChronusDev uses the Spotify Desktop Client for Windows, audio and some video ads 😥 were still getting through, so I searched for additional servers to block. Below an additional set of servers responsible for the triggering of ads (external partner ads):

Ad triggering:
heads-ak.spotify.com.edgesuite.net
heads-akp.spotify.com.edgesuite.net
heads4-ak.spotify.com.edgesuite.net
heads4-akp.spotify.com.edgesuite.net

Audio ads:
audio-ak.spotify.com.edgesuite.net
audio-ake.spotify.com.edgesuite.net
audio-akp.spotify.com.edgesuite.net
audio4-ak.spotify.com.edgesuite.net
audio4-akp.spotify.com.edgesuite.net

Video ads:
video-fa.scdn.co
video-fa.cdn.spotify.com
video-fa-b.cdn.spotify.com

Unfortunately 😒 this didn't help for Spotify's own advertising. Partner ads were gone though (at least in my case). @ChronusDev figured out there were two additional servers that could be blocked to prevent the (Spotify) audio ads from being played:

62.224.186.35.bc.googleusercontent.com
48.224.186.35.bc.googleusercontent.com

I told him I was not quite happy to block Google servers since there might be a lot of servers available depending on your location. He says it worked for him but apparently it did not work for me 😠 as I got adverts - even spoken in different languages - since a direct connection is being made to the IP addresses.

So I told him to block:

spclient.wg.spotify.com

But that broke 💔 the social features of the desktop client. Not a problem for me since I don't use it and just want to play music without advertisements. The biggest problem in my opinion is there're no Daily Playlists and it also breaks the Android app and Chromecast. So it's definitely not suitable for everyone. The one advantage you'll get for Android is that the announcements of ads are gone, but you're not able to search for (new) songs. You're stuck with your existing playlists and your Chromecast won't work.

The best solution I have found so far is blocking an IP-range for outgoing traffic (OS firewall or router):

35.186.224.0/24

That will break the Android app and Chromecast is unable to connect (same as above). But hey, while using solely the desktop application this doesn't seem to break anything only kills the Daily Playlists. 🙋 I'll keep on looking for other solutions, but like many others I do have a life with children playing around.


Keep in mind that blocking servers is LEGAL. It's your home, your device, your Internet and your conviction. You and only you decide what kind of data comes in and goes out. Clean and simple.

Currently marketing is an invasion of our privacy. We're at war. If that changes maybe we do not need lists like these. You'll be surprised how much data is being send to the companies. Many marketeers now are the new bankers going for the fast money! I think it's not their business to know what ad I click on, what tracks I listen to and which sites I have been on. Those marketeers know me better than my own mother does. That's a real shame. Two thousand eighteen. Thirty-four years have passed us by. Omnipresent mass surveillance is now being used on us. Certainly not only by our governments. Also, the Internet giants are guilty of massive public manipulation. We should all know that's not okay.

For an optimized experience you could use an older version of the Spotify app (max version 8.4.55.521).

Please note that using a modded version the app is highly illegal, so I discourage you to do that!

BE AWARE THAT I MIGHT DELETE (SOME) COMMENTS TO KEEP THIS PAGE ORGANIZED. SO DON'T BE ANGRY WITH ME, SINCE I WILL DO SO IN A RESPECTFUL MANNER, GIVING CREDIT TO PEOPLE HELPING ME OUT.

Hey guys! I wonder how I can block the ads when I am casting to my chromecast.
I tried with my Fritz!Box's blacklist, but it does not feature enough space for that.
I already blocked 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.8.4.
Can somebody help me?

This is probably due to the fact that they block open.spotify.com & spclient.wg.spotify.com while this list isn't (instead it only suggests not to block it).

By blocking these, you will mostly likely break the website streaming, social features and probably the radio feature. So, you are free to do whatever you like.

I'm still getting ads, and it is because of spclient.wg.spotify.com. If I block it, however, I won't be able to play songs.
If I leave it, I still get those Spotify banner ads.

You can use version 1.0.85.259 (that's right before they started adding ad-blocking countermeasures) and keep blocking spclient.wg.spotify.com.

It seems that the i.scdn.co is used in order to both display some image ads as well as album art images. Such a shame!

So i’ve including all of the “block these” domains using Adblock on mobile (IOS 13) and it seems to also block the player from fetching some songs, any idea on what’s going on?

@eogextreme it's possible to add it to Pi-Hole, just add to the black list setting the raw file like:

I did it and works fine.

If you use Privacy Badger it blocks most of them too just fyi

Offending ads urls:

  • https://spclient.wg.spotify.com/ads/v2/config?payload=<some_string>
  • https://spclient.wg.spotify.com/ad-logic/state/config

I don't want to block spclient.wg.spotify.com completely, so using some MITM https proxy you can only filter the ad URLs. This completely blocks ads in Spotify from Windows Store.

Here's a simple solution:

  • Install Fiddler4 (not Fiddler Everywhere)
    • Use the direct download link above so you don't have to type in your Email address
  • If you see a question titles "AppContainer Configuration", click Cancel
  • In the toolbar, locate WinConfig, hold Ctrl and click on it
  • Go to Tools → Options
    • In General, disable "Notify for updates" and "Participate in the Fiddler Improvement Program"
    • In Connections, disable "Act as system proxy on startup", also if the default port 8888 conflicts with another program, change it
    • In HTTPS, make sure Capture HTTPS CONNECTs is enabled, and check Decrypt HTTPS traffic
      • When asked Trust the Fiddler Root certificate? press Yes
      • In the subsequent window "Security Warning" press Yes again. Don't worry as the Fiddler Root CA is unique to your system
      • In the confirm dialog, press Yes again, you should see an OK message now.
      • The '...from all processes` must be selected, and "Check for certificate revocation" should be checked
    • (Optional) If Spotify is blocked in your country, ISP, school, etc, head over to Gateway, and select the upstream proxy settings according to your liking. (You can even route Spotify traffic over Tor)
  • In Fiddler, from the right pane select the AutoResponder tab (if you don't see the right pane, resize Fiddler until you do)
    • The Enable rules and Unmatched requests passthrough must be checked
    • Press the Add Rule button
    • In the Rule editor, paste the following:
      • In the first field: regex:^https://spclient\.wg\.spotify\.com/(.+\/)?(ads|ad-logic)/.*$
      • In the second one: *reset
      • Match only once must be unchecked
      • Press Save
  • Minimize Fiddler if you want to
  • Open Spotify → Control + P to open Settings
    • Navigate to the bottom, and click Show Advanced Settings
    • In Proxy section:
      • Set Proxy type to HTTP
      • Type in localhost in host and 8888 for port (or the value used if you changed the port above)
      • Leave both username and password blank
      • Press Update Proxy
      • If asked to restart, do so
  • Now navigate to Home (from left pane) and play your music

I know this is a lengthy process, but it works absolutely awesome! No need to block this domain, or mute when ads are played. In the future when you use Spotify, you need to open Fiddler first and minimize it. No additional configuration needed. Just keep Fiddler running in the background when Spotify is open.

This has been confirmed to work on both editions of Spotify on Windows, specifically tested using the Microsoft Store edition of Spotify version 1.1.35.458.g891674f3

Or just use uBlock Origin with web player ....

@llacb47 Yes, use either the store version or the web player. For anything that runs in the web browser, uBlock Origin is a must, but personally I prefer to run services like Spotify, Discord, Skype, etc... in their exclusive Electron/Chromium window. Yes, I know that's silly but that's just my preference and I need an HTTPS filtering solution like this to stop the annoying Spotify ads.

Furthermore, Pihole/domain-based blocking is also a must for me in other scenarios such as mobile apps. I believe both serve their purposes and I have chosen to both block domains + do HTTPS filtering in addition to using browser-based extensions like uBO.

P.S. I use Privacy Badger and Disconnect in addition to Block Origin, even though it's generally advised against. I still block over 250+MBs worth of domain in my personal DNS resolver. It's just a matter of choice – I'm sure many people would gladly prefer using the web version instead of going through all this hassle, but for whoever who might find it useful, I'm sure there are benefits to https filtering.

I'll be glad to hear all about what other privacy/security tools you might use and give them a try.

OP's list breaks desktop version (1.1.45.621.gdddebadc) for me - playback stops after a few seconds into track and then it can't be played again. Can someone advise maybe a lighter version that blocks interruptive ads?

Can anyone confirm if this list is working on iOS Spotify? I have tried the CHEF-KOCH list but I still get the own Spotify ads.
Anyone found a solution for that? I’m using Docker AdGuard-home to block ads on my home network.

Just added the list to my pihole and the Xbox app overlay broke but I can still start playback via my phone and set the consol as output.. Any fix for that? I also still get a lot of ads.
