YouTube has announced that it will remove overlay ads from the platform starting on April 6. The removal of overlay ads will undoubtedly enhance the viewer experience, making YouTube a more enjoyable platform for all. Overlay ads are known to be less effective than other ad formats, such as pre-roll ads, which play before a video begins. As a result, creators often earn less revenue from overlay ads, despite their videos receiving a high number of views. Overlay ads are known for their affordability, making them a popular option for advertisers with smaller budgets.
