Spotify has become synonymous with streaming music in recent years, and many are using the service to enjoy music. Today we will see how to listen to free music through Spotify Web player.
Spotify Web Player is the convenient web version of the music streaming service that works like the smartphone and tablet app or desktop client. Except that, despite the mobile version, it has no limitations except for the presence of an advertisement now and then.

How to use Spotify Web Player
Using Spotify’s Web Player is simple. The service is written in HTML5 and therefore has no compatibility problems with any modern browser. (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Edge).
To use the Web player, open the open.spotify.com page and then click on the “Login” button at the top right. At this point, if you already have an account, you can log in using the service credentials or through your Facebook or Apple account.
If you do not have an account, it will be easy to register for the service for free by clicking on the “Subscribe to Spotify” button. Once registration is complete, you will be ready to use the service.
Spotify Web Player is immediate; look for the songs of interest in the right bar at the interface’s top. You can choose the heart that appears next to the song’s name being played to add it to the list of our favorite songs. Knowing our tastes, the service will delight us with “ Daily mixes,” which are daily playlists based on our favorite artists. Besides, it will be able to prepare the automatic “Release radar.” Playlist with all the latest releases from the artists we regularly listen to and like.
Thanks to its intelligent playlists, Spotify is also a great way to discover other artists who make our favorite music.
How to Remove Advertising on Spotify Web
The first method is to subscribe to a Spotify Premium subscription which for € 9.90 per month allows you to enjoy all the music without limitations whatsoever, even in the mobile version.
If you don’t want to subscribe but want to avoid the famous advertising, you need to use an AdBlock such as uBlock Origin. How does PayPal work? This extension was available for Chrome and Firefox (and informally also for Edge and Opera). Blocks are advertising when you surf the net. Using this method is simple. According to your internet browser, go to the addon page.
Then click on the “Add” or “Add to Firefox” button. Once installed, the addon will be automatically activated. You will be able to return to the service page (which should be reloaded / refresher) and enjoy all the music without advertising. Sometimes this method stops working for short periods and usually. After the automatic update of the ad block list, it starts working correctly again.
In any case, we do not recommend using this route because it eliminates Spotify’s revenues. If abused by everyone, this method could lead the company to permanently remove the Spotify Free version (and become, for example, like Apple Music, or service only to payment).
Add a desktop shortcut to Spotify Web Player.
Spotify Web Player is convenient to use but less than the client available on desktop computers. To have a similar experience, you can take advantage of the possibility of creating direct links to the pages available on the main web browsers.
For example, for Google Chrome, the procedure is straightforward:
open the web player page
Click on the Chrome menu icon. Using the icon with the three overlapping dots, press on “Other tools” and then “Add to desktop.”
You can then choose what name to give the link and click on the “Add” button.
The procedure is just as simple for Firefox.
Open the web player page
resize the browser window to see the desktop
left-click on the lock next to the site name and hold. And drag it to an empty area of the desktop
at this point, you will have a direct link to the page.
