Spotify is testing a brand new function in Australia that’ll let non-paying customers skip adverts (each audio and video) as many occasions as they like. The corporate tells AdAge that the concept is that customers will possible solely skip adverts they don’t care about, so what they do eat will give Spotify suggestions on find out how to higher goal them. An organization govt in contrast it to Uncover Weekly, however for adverts. Advertisers gained’t should pay for skipped adverts.
I form of perceive this, however I don’t understand how a lot better it would make adverts. Individuals are lazy and don’t wish to should navigate again to the app simply to skip an advert. Spotify says it’s solely testing the function for now, however the objective is to launch it globally. As somebody who pays for Spotify, this makes me really feel somewhat dumb! I solely pay in order that I by no means have to listen to adverts (and for offline downloads), however skippable adverts appear simpler to tolerate. It takes a bit of labor to keep away from them, however it is perhaps well worth the effort simply to avoid wasting money.
