Google are killing 30-second unskippable ads on YouTube

Google has now announced plans to kill 30-second unskippable ads on YouTube, with plans to support for engaging commercial formats that work better for both viewers and advertisers.

Read more on Google's plans to kill 30-second unskippable ads on YouTube.

I'm not saying that 1984 is a bad book, but the dystopia we are currently living in has much better worldbuilding.

I want them to make use of the space around the video not over it. Once I can watch content in peace, I'll disable adblock on YouTube.

Also never understood long YouTube ads, most of the time, they've not even mentioned their name by the time I can skip it. They need to make more of an effort to squeeze a creative advert into 6 seconds. If Viners can do it, so can they.

Whoah whoah you all don't want to pay for youtube red? its a great service, super cheap, I use it all the time!

Which is what I would say if I felt it wasn't just a cheap copout and a load of nonsense! But wait it is adblock and ublock origins for the win!

Also if an ad does play when watching something on youtube, skip it if possible, and then back out of the video and go back in and the rest of the ads that might be present in the video will be gone least that works on the youtube app for xbox one and also works on my win10 pc

Oh thank god. Been seeing so many of these lately
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be the blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

- J. R. R. Tolkien

lol believe it when i see it.

Google can't even get YouTube to work correctly.

Google how about fixing what's broken first before adding anything new.

I also think that Google couldn't really care about fixing YouTube.
