There are different plans provided for Spotify users: Spotify Free, Spotify Premium, Spotify Premium for Family, PlayStation and Students Discount. Spotify Free and Spotify Premium are two plans that most Spotify users choose. One of the biggest differences between the two subscriptions is mainly on ads displaying. To save your money by enjoying ad-free Spotify music without premium, you can read on.


Part 1. Block Ads & Download Spotify Music for Free without Premium

To get profits from those free subscription, Spotify allows third-party ads to be displayed in the interface of Spotify. To get the ad-free Spotify Music, you can either use Spotify Premium or use a powerful program - TuneFab Spotify Music Converter.

TuneFab Spotify Music Converter enables you to remove DRM protection from Spotify songs and download them to MP3, M4A, WAV and FLAC to play ad-free music offline on the devices or music players you like. The ID3 tag is also editable. Download the software below and try the steps on your own:

Step 1. Launch TuneFab Spotify Music Converter

Download and install TuneFab Spotify Music Converter on your computer and you will see the interface as below.

Step 2. Add Songs from Spotify Music

Hit on "Add Files" in the interface and you will be allowed to drag songs, playlists, albums and tracks into TuneFab Spotify Music Converter if you have installed Spotify Music on your computer before. You can also copy and paste song link and playlist into the box at the bottom and hit on "Add" at the bottom to move on.

Step 3. Preview Before Downloading Spotify without Premium

Once the songs are detected by TuneFab Spotify Music Converter, you can preview and choose the songs that you want to download. Hit on "Add" after finishing.

Step 4. Set up Output Format

As we know, Spotify uses OGG format and DRM protection for its songs, which can't be played on most devices and music players. So, before we download our Spotify music offline, we need to convert them into MP3 first. Go to "Options" > "Advanced"; and choose "MP3" under the "Format" option. M4A, WAV and FLAC are also available but I prefer MP3 because it is widely applied.

Step 5. Download Spotify Music Offline without Premium

Now, you've done all the preparation. It’s time that you can download Spotify on your Android phone, iPhone/iPad, Windows and Mac OS X computer.

Part 2. Chrome Extension: Spotify Adblocker for Spotify WebPlayer

Another way to download Spotify songs offline is by using the excellent Chrome extension - Spotify Adblocker. Spotify Adblocker is used to block ad on Spotify, as its name indicates. This extension makes it easy to block third-party advertisements on Spotify. Let’s see how:

Spotify ADs

Step 1. Go to "Chrome Web Store" on your Chrome Browser and search "Spotify Adblocker" in the search box. Find this software by and download it.

Step 2. Once the chrome extension successfully downloaded. You will get the Spotify icon with a slash listed in the extension bar.

Step 3. Click on the icon and you will see the pop-up interface as below. As you can see, the interface is clean. There's a "Spotify ads volume" option and an "On/Off" option. Check the "On/Off" to enable Spotify adblocker and uncheck to disable.

Tick to Turn on Spotify ADBlocker

Step 4. Tick the "On/Off" box and refresh. Then, you will see the third-party ads at the bottom will be replaced by Spotify ads.

Note: This Chrome extension for your Google Chrome is extraordinary but this works only for Spotify Web Player.

Part 3. EZBlocker: Your Best Spotify Ad Blocker for Windows & Mac

The third Spotify Ad Blocker that I am introducing is EZBlocker. EZBlocker is a Spotify ad blocking software available on both Windows and Mac. You can tick "Mute Only Spotify" and "Disable All Ads" to silent play Spotify audio/video ads.


Note: You need to have .NET Framework 4.5 and Windows 7/8/10.

You can try either of these Spotify Ad Blocker to remove or mute Spotify third-party ads. From my point of view, among these 3 ad blockers, TuneFab Spotify Music Converter will be highly recommended because you can not only download and enjoy Spotify music offline without ads as well as converting them into the format you like so that you can save Spotify music to Dropbox and more cloud storage services, music players, music editors and music equalizers.
