Discovery ads is formerly known as “TrueView in-display ads.” Use this format to promote a video in places of discovery, including next to related YouTube videos, as part of a YouTube search result, or alongside other content across the Display Network. Your ad consists of a thumbnail image from your video with some text. While the exact size and appearance of the ad may vary depending on where it appears, video discovery ads always invite people to click to watch the video. The video then plays on the YouTube Watch page or on your channel page. Ads can appear: on YouTube search results, alongside related YouTube videos, on the YouTube homepage, as an overlay on a YouTube watch page, on video partner sites and apps across the Display Network.
