YouTube Shorts ads are underway

We definitely saw this coming!

YouTube Shorts is gaining momentum, hitting 30 billion views daily as per Google’s latest earnings report – four times higher than last year’s average.

Google has announced that it is now bringing ads to YouTube Shorts, providing a new monetization pathway across its short-form content. 

Phillipp Schindler, Google’s Chief Business Officer, comments on the new test as follows:
