    Is there a way to get rid of YouTube ads? They're really annoying.

    YouTube paid subscription? Although it might depend on where you are, what country.

    I use YouTube AdAway on the Xposed Framework. It works great on the YouTube app. Your device has to be rooted, though.

    Sadly, even with YouTube adaway, and Xposed framework, newer builds of YouTube keep trying to shove ads on me. Only thing so far that's worked was wiping the data of the app and relaunching. But I feel I shouldn't have to go through that. But we might have to, on account that Google would rather go bankrupt than admit fault to anything.

    The ads I sometimes see on YouTube are streamed video ads shown before the videos. I've found they can always be skipped though. This is in a browser, not the YouTube app, using my VPN with server in Hong Kong.

    Yea, it's pretty obnoxious on the app. Even if I try to cancel the video and swipe away, reloading the video it will try to press an ad on me regardless. And just like people gripe about, the ad loads immediately but then it wants to take a solid minute or two before loading the requested video.

    The app tubemate lets you to download the whole videos to your storage so that you can see them later offline and without ads.

    Strange. I've seldom had such issues.

    I download YouTube videos to watch offline later through Termux. There's a tutorial to show you how on XDA.

    I have to deal with it all the time. There was a pretty large xda thread about it.
