YouTube is cutting those annoying 30-second ads next year


Youtube has announced that starting in 2018, they will be dropping their :30 second un-skippable ads that play before your desired content. 

"We're committed to providing a better ads experience for users online," a Google spokesperson said, confirming the report. "As part of that, we've decided to stop supporting 30-second unskippable ads as of 2018."

To the surprise of no one, most viewers are not fans of YouTube ads. In a survey done by Accenture last year, over 80 percent of respondents from various countries said they thought their online video watching was interrupted by ads too much.

It's possible that Google is making the move after feeling heat from Facebooka company that's been focusing more and more on video content in recent years.
