Reports have been posted on SNS one after another that five non-skippable ads on YouTube have been played in a row. YouTube described the ad as a short, 6-second, non-skippable bumper ad . From this, it is pointed out that in the future you may have to keep watching non-skippable ads for a total of 30 seconds.

YouTube is testing 5 (!) unskippable ads feature making millions of users angry! -

Twitter user The Ricked One tweeted on September 9, 2022 that he saw five long, non-skippable ads while watching YouTube, and posted a picture of the screen playing the ad.

Similar issues have been reported on the online forum Reddit.

Some images have ads playing 8 or 10 times.

A further 11 cases were reported.

According to tech news site Gizchina, which covered the issue, there have been cases in the past where users without YouTube Premium have been shown non-skippable ads, but the maximum number of ads is two. Ads can be skipped. However, since the beginning of September, there have been reports of five non-skippable ads being played.

YouTube's official Twitter account explained to the complaint that 'this non-skippable ad is a bumper ad' and asked for feedback.

From this point of view, Gizchina said, ``Unfortunately, you can't skip any of the ads, so you'll have to watch all 5 ads that you're not interested in. I checked my personal YouTube account, and there are still 2 ads. This means that not everyone is served 5 ads, which means the feature is being tested and presumably Google wants to see how users react. I am,” he commented.
