YouTube has recently announced that it is updating its “Terms of Service”. As a part of the new provision, the platform will insert advertisements into content that is not a part of the YouTube Partner Program.
Basically, even if the creators chose not to put ads in their videos, YouTube would be doing that. As a result, it could be not very pleasant to some as they will not gain revenue unless signed up for the partner program.
As mentioned by YouTube, “Starting today, we’ll begin slowly rolling out ads on a limited number of videos from channels not in YPP. This means as a creator that’s not in YPP, and you may see ads on some of your videos.”
