YouTube is finally getting rid of this annoying feature and that’s great for us

YouTube is finally getting rid of a “legacy” feature that has most likely been annoying users for quite some time now.

According to the official YouTube forum post and reported on by Ars Technica, YouTube will finally be retiring the overlay ad starting on April 6, 2023. The overlay ads, or ‘legacy ad format’ as the post refers to the feature as, “will no longer appear on YouTube videos or as an available ad format when you turn on ads in YouTube Studio.”
