Pre-roll ads start showing up on YouTube’s Windows Phone Mobile site

WindowsPhoneDaily reports that YouTube appears to have rolled out video ads on their mobile website for Windows Phone.

The video ads appear before some videos and despite it being an HTML5 site the experience appears relatively smooth, with the video transitioning without major interruption from the ad to the actual video.

The ads have been present on iOS and Android for some time now, and I suspect Google is trying to add some substance to their claim that Microsoft deprived them of earnings by releasing their own YouTube app.

Have the ads been showing up for our readers? Let us know below.
