Google announces TrueView mobile ads in YouTube, iOS coming soon

We've commented a couple of times about YouTube and how it is being banished from the stock iOS experience. We've talked about it from Apple's perspective, and the user's perspective, but now Google's perspective is becoming clear...

Make sure you turn off your adblocker occasionally on the sites you like, like PA. Click all over the ads to help them get $

I just hope apps for rooted Androids like AdAway are still able to block the ads in YouTube.

i presume that youtube mobile sites for devices like Star II won't be affected, right?

dont actually mind ads this way..have already experienced this trueview ads on my nexus 7 and does not appear on all videos and usually the ads that are shown i usually watch it as it is tech related which is the content i read and watch and finally it also lets you skip the ad which is great..you cant expect things to be free without advertising.

Given the video in question, I'd rather watch the ad.
