1 year ago

YouTube has updated its terms of service recently where the video-sharing platform is now giving chance to place ads on videos from channels not in the YouTube Partner Program (YPP).  These new terms of service will be effective in the United States but for countries outside of the United States, it will be effective in mid-year 2021.

In a blog, YouTube mentioned that ads can now appear on videos from channels not in the YouTube Partner Program (YPP), and it will begin gradually placing ads on brand-safe videos. This will help advertisers responsibly tap into the full scale of YouTube to connect with their audiences and grow their businesses. For the channels that are not in YPP, there will be no revenue share on ads, but creators can still apply to YPP.
