The best ad blocker for any device

Just like you can allow or block a program in the Windows 10 firewall, it's also possible to deny something as simple as web ads.

AdBlock Radio has become the best ad blocker, its operation is quite simple and efficient. This app is designed in such a way that while the user is listening to a good podcast or the radio, this app is trying to detect if what is playing is a conversation, a song or an advertisement.



It is one of the many ways to not only block, but also remove or delete the ads that appear in Google Chrome in some way and avoid annoyances.

Now if it detects that this is an advertisement, AdBlock automatically lowers the volume or just switch to another radio station. This will depend on the configuration you put in.

This is possible thanks to the fact that AdBlock has its own module of an algorithm called “LandMark”. This algorithm is capable of extracting the acoustic imprint of music, podcast conversation and advertisements.

Therefore, this application uses machine learning to be able to recognize each ad and thus be able to improve the identification of each. Likewise, the user has the ability to report advertisements that were not automatically reported by the app.
