This shouldn't be confused with the "Active Listening" feature Spotify has been testing in some territories since last August, which lets listeners choose to skip some ads if they don't want to listen to them.

In an email to users today, the streaming music and podcast platform said its newuser guidelines, "specified that all types of ad blockers, bots, and fraudulent streaming activities are not permitted". The terms will go into effect on March 1.
