YouTube is testing 5 Unskippable Ads before the video starts. The most popular video streaming YouTube is testing to add five Ads on video that will be unskippable. Currently, YouTube shows only two Unskippable Ads on video before video stats which is fine for free users.
But now it is planning to add the 5 Unskippable Ads instead of 2 Ads. Today I am explaining to you about YouTube 5 Unskippable Ads instead of 2 Ads. You have to read this post till the end to know more about the 5 Ads instead of 2 before the video starts.
YouTube testing 5 Unskippable Ads
Users who have not subscribed to the YouTube Premium feature will receive the 5 Ads which will be unskippable. They will see the 5 advertisements at the start of the video. However, YouTube said that it is a bumper ad and runs only 6 seconds for each ad.
YouTube said, “This may happen with a certain type of ad format called bumper ads since they are only up to 6 seconds long. If you’d like, you can send feedback directly from YouTube via the send feedback tool”.
Users have to wait for 30 seconds and have to watch ads to continue watching the video. Some users get 5 unskippable ads for up to 10 seconds. One user also gets the 11 unskippable ads before the video start on YouTube instead of 5.
Not all users are getting the 5 ads before the video starts and also not all videos have very long ads. But most YouTube viewers are currently getting 2 ads before the video starts. There is no information about when will the 5 unskippable ads roll out for the users.
Some users buy YouTube Premium to watch the videos without having ads on them. They also get some extra benefits from YouTube Premium. But most users use Chrome’s ad blocker extension to watch YouTube videos without serving ads on them.
