NewYork: We all hate them, we all feel irritated and at last You Tube has accepted it. You Tube has decided to stop serving their unskippeable irritable 30 seconds ads to its users but not now. It will start in 2018,as announced by Google.
The company will instead push its other unskippable ad formats, including the 6 seconds adand later 20 seconds ad. A Google spokesperson told Business Insider: "We’ve decided to stop supporting 30-second unskippable ads as of 2018 and focus instead on formats that work well for both users and advertisers."
According to youtube, more than half of its video views come from mobile users, where a 30-second ad can negatively affect consumers with a smaller data plan.
The video sharing website also faces competition from Facebook, which began testing mid-roll ads, allowing advertisers to insert ads after users have watched 20 seconds of a video, earlier this year.
