Is it me or has Youtube gone mad on the ads?

I have been using YT for quizzes etc recently and got almost no ads. Now there is a long and loud ad on every single vid!

My daughter and I were actually talking about this just yesterday. The ads are now ridiculous on it

The amount of ads have been steadily increasing since they launched you tube premium. I'm assuming to try and drive people to pay for the ad free service. The ads are now at a ridiculous level

Yes, very long double adverts.

Get an ad blocker.

Cant remember the last time I had to watch a YT ad

I have AdGuard and never see ads. Me and DP were discussing it today and cane to the conclusion that I see no ads because I watch YouTube in my browser and not the app. He downloaded the same app and he opened his YouTube app and the ads were still visible.

So that’s my advice. Open it in your browser and download an adblocker.
