With its new unskippable ad feature, YouTube might end up killing ad blockers once and for all. Currently, the video platform is experimenting with server-side ad injection, which means the ads would appear directly in a video’s stream, bypassing ad blockers.

A Google spokesperson explained the test to Gizmodo: “YouTube is improving its performance and reliability in serving both organic and ad video content. This update may result in suboptimal viewing experiences for viewers with ad blockers installed. Ad blockers violate YouTube’s Terms of Service, and we’ve been urging viewers for some time to support their favorite creators and allow ads on YouTube or try YouTube Premium for an ad-free experience.”

While YouTube claims that watching ads helps support users’ favorite creators, a Redditor said they’re getting 90 seconds of unskippable ads “before every video,” which makes the platform pretty much useless.

As a matter of fact, YouTube has been adding as many ads as it can to videos on the platform, as users occasionally have to sit through three ads before a video starts, a few more while watching the content, and a final ad after the video ends


This is why, instead of using an ad blocker, I decided to pay for YouTube Premium. Not only did I leave the platform’s miserable ad-based experience behind, but I also learned to enjoy other perks, such as listening to a video in the background and downloading as many videos as I want when I’m on a trip with no cellular connection.

YouTube isn’t the only platform focusing on unskippable ads, as even Instagram has started testing some new forms of ad revenue that might see the light of day soon. While YouTube at least offers you a plan to get rid of ads, Meta doesn’t offer the same option yet.

If Google rolls out this new unskippable ad feature, we’ll make sure to report back. For now, it seems only a tiny portion of users are seeing them

they can't wait to just take every bit & crumb and drive themselves right out of business, companies just up the anti over & over & over, it's not always more money to make without sacraficing what makes you a good company, but people just keep going and destroy the sh*t everytime.

they are already doing something where they promote smaller channels purposely, which in my opinion is because they know they aren't monitized and it saves them money

Yeah a lot of creators, I’ve unsubscribed from. Have 2 or 3 unskippable tv commercial ads play back to back. 2 or 3 minute Intro of something they gonna say in the video, then back to commercial. Then get 10-20 minutes of some bullchit music be playing, with a countdown to video start (like Kevin Samuel lives). Another commercial.

Then 10 to 15 minutes of shout outs and right back to commercial. Another 10 of 15 minutes of whatever they selling or from sponsors . Back to commercial. Then another 10 to 20 minutes of nothing about nothing, that has nothing to do with the video. Then another commercial. I can’t do it, I’m tired. I just go to another video.

NewPipe is great if you have android—no ads, background play, import/export playlists, download all YT content as MP4 video or MP3 audio files etc.

That starts at $14 a month, it is the basically same service we have been getting free. No one watches or is interested in youtube original content.

Same here. Got tired of all the commercials and waiting for the skip button to show up. I cancelled my Spotify though because it didnít make sense to have it and YouTube Music (which comes with Premium).
