google play music ads

Postby yeeeeee » Tue May 10, 2016 12:47 am

Google play music is a great streaming service available on multiple platforms for free with ads.
It's similar to apple music but doesn't require a subscription and is browser based, not software based.

I think that the ad is baked into the stream similarly to how YouTube ads are.
So i think this might be an interesting next step for ad block plus dev.

Adds are especially more interrupting than YouTube ads as each add is a full 30 SECONDS long and often is the same
regurgitated ad over and over and is most often completely unrelated to the content your listening to.

I often get an ad regarding the american council of the blind for some reason while listening to the rap shuffles
I am neither American or blind and the music is so contrasting to the music i'm listening to and
is painfully reminiscent of the Mii channel on the old Wii.

Just wanted to bring this up,

I can't really show you a link because you can only get to the streams if you log into a google account. If you go to google play music, hit any station and hit skip a couple times, you'll eventually get an un-skipable 30 second ad.

Just FYI, YouTube ads are not "baked into the stream" and it is possible to block them without also blocking the desired content.
There's a buzzin' in my brain I really can't explain; I think about it before they make me go to bed.
