What has YouTube said?
A YouTube spokesperson exclusively informed Search Engine Land:
- We are testing a change to the design of the ‘skip ads’ button on all systems.
- Our goal is to provide a better, more consistent user experience on YouTube, in line with the updated look and feel we announced last year.
Why do we care?
Users will certainly be less inclined to advertise if the ability to do so is not extended to their interests, resulting in increased view rates, reach, conversions, and, undoubtedly, increased advertising spend on the platform. However, entrepreneurs should keep in mind that forcing advertisements on customers can also have negative effects.
Feedback. The brand-new design was spotted by Google advertising specialist, Thomas Eccles, who shared his thoughts on X (Twitter). He wrote:
- Really saw this tiny ‘skip ad’ button, It looks like Google is trying out this new button. Its layout is brand new and it’s much smaller than the normal ‘skip ads’ box. If implemented, then it will affect the cost of view fees and campaigns.
Meanwhile, others also faded the redesigned button and interrogated whether the platform was also creating the ads longer.
A redesigned skip button was released to help align it with YouTube’s brand-new look and feel, as well as maintain a level of prominence comparable to modern-day pass buttons.
The platform had announced in the last 12 months that it was planning to undergo a small change amid calls from users to make the UI cleaner and more active.
