Watching a video on YouTube and then… suddenly an ad break ruins teh whole experience! The ads in between the YouTube videos can get really annoying and the absence of the 'Skip-ad' button can make it even more frustrating. YouTube, which is one of the most popular video-sharing platforms has millions of people logging in to watch the content daily. That's the reason that advertisers choose YouTube to advertise their products and services. But the experience for users of watching videos online can be hampered by these unwanted ads in between. Thankfully, there are ways to remove these ads and enjoy the YouTube videos without any breaks. Yes, you can go watch YouTube videos ad-free on your smartphones and desktop too. To let you enjoy your YouTube sessions, we have provided a quick guide on how to watch YouTube videos without ads on phones and PC.

YouTube videos without ads on smartphones and PCs for free

If you are not in favour of paying for a YouTube Premium subscription, then there's another ‘free' way to block the ads on YouTube. You can install an ad-blocking browser extension for the desktop browser and it will do the rest of the work - block the unwanted ads from YouTube videos for you. You can add the extension to any of your preferred browsers from Google Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.

Well, if you want to download an ad-blocker on your smartphone then you can simply download it from Google PlayStore. Here, you need to note that you will not be able to use the native YouTube app as it doesn't allow third-party applications. All you will need to do is you have to watch the video on a browser while keeping the ad-blocker on. You can consider AdGuard, AdLock, Adblock Plus, uBlock Origin and 1Blockerx (iPhone/Safari).

Having said all this, the best experience would be to take the 'free' part out of the equation and instead try the YouTube premium subscription. It would definitely save you a lot of hassles and, above all, give you the best experience possible on your phones, laptops and PCs.
