Everybody is aware of the popular video streaming platform YouTube. Well, if yes, then you must be also aware of those frustrating ads that pop up at the beginning or in the middle of the video. Well, some of the ads can be skipped, while most of them cannot.
Well, there is good news for the users. The company has decided to stop those 30-second unskippable ads. This has created an atmosphere of enthusiasm among the users. People have now shown a sign of relief as it won’t be compulsory for the users to view those ads. But don’t get any false hopes. This initiative will take some time to get started. The company has estimated that it will start from 2018 onwards. Well, no problem!!! We are happy with the thought alone of quitting the 30-second unskippable ads.
But, there is one thing of significant importance. The company has taken another decision. Even though YouTube is removing its support for the 30-second unskippable ads, it will still continue to support the remaining formats of ads. Moreover, ads that are less than 30 seconds will be made unskippable. Well, the company has also thought about other users that make a living through ads.
Well, this was a smart move that the firm played. It not only kept the heart of the video streamers but also maintained the trust between the ad posting users. Well played YouTube!!! This might be challenging for Facebook as well as other video streaming platforms. We wish all the very best for the company for its future endeavors.
