YouTube further increases length, quantity of unskippable Ads
YouTube has further increased the frequency of advertisements in its videos and now viewers may see up to 10 Ads during a single video break.
Viewers have noticed that advertisements on YouTube have significantly increased in duration and quantity together over the past two months, particularly in unskippable formats.
Ad breaks in longer videos occur more regularly after every few minutes, according to tweets and Reddit threads. Many viewers have noticed the longer pauses, some of which have as many as 10 advertisements in a single break of a video, while it is more typical to see at least 5 advertisements.
Although YouTube hasn’t addressed the rise in advertisements yet, the Team YouTube Twitter Account responded to a tweet criticising the advertising. These advertisements, according to the claim, were merely “bumper adverts” set to show up at the start of each movie.
