As Engadget reports, mobile users will already be aware of the feature, but YouTube is now testing a floating window for playback on the desktop/web version of the video streaming site.

The family owned company, which was founded the day before 9/11/2001, also received this message from YouTube about their content.

Yet, frustrating current YouTube users with ads might not entice them to subscribe.

. "Once we do that, trust me, all that noise [about revenue and violations] will be gone and articles people write about that noise will be gone".

According to MacRumors, thousands of Google employees are now involved in the testing phase for the new subscription service.

In addition, Ad-Block Plus, an add-on for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera, as well as iOS and Android, provides ad-free viewing. Over the coming months YouTube will be adding more devices that you can stream directly from the camera app to YouTube. A current search on the site for "how to build a gun" yields 25 million results, though that includes items such as toys. With 159 million monthly active users, 88 million people around the world use the service's free, ad-supported service. However, that's in line with the low-end of buying airtime for a 30-second local TV ad, which ranges from $200 to $1,500+, depending on time slot. Prior to this update from YouTube, YouTubers would have just a single method for streaming on the web by catching content including their desktop, camera, and microphone and sent them to YouTube to be live streamed.
