You may not be able to skip pesky YouTube ads anymore

  • Thursday, 30 Aug 2018

This announcement means that any channel that monetises its videos can choose to implement non-skippable ads to its content.

Is there anything more annoying than seeing ads at the beginning or in the middle of a YouTube video? Yes. Unskippable ads, and now there’s a higher chance of you not seeing that “skip ad” button over the video.

Why? That’s because YouTube has announced a big change for its content creators which encourages them to earn more money from ad revenues.
