Google has finally clarified that they will be restricting ad-blocking in extensions to paying customers of their enterprise services.
This is an unsurprising move from the advertising giant which has previously remotely-deleted ad blocking extensions and software from user’s software and devices. Recently Google has taken the extreme step of blocking all apps from third party devices which has resulted in a court injunction against them.
Google has announced this month that they will be increasing the placement of advertisements on Android Home screens and YouTube’s recommended videos.
These new ads will be in the form of (static) image galleries which you can scroll through. These kinds of ads will likely be harder to block out, particularly in YouTube’s recommended video list.
