Flipboard now plays you video ads

Last week it was Spotify announcing video ads. This week, it’s Flipboard’s turn to launch them.

The news was first announced back in August, but testing for full-screen videos ads kick off today with big-name brands such as Gucci, Chrysler, Sony Pictures, Conrad Hotels & Resorts.

You’ll see the video ads as you swipe through the content, and may include ones like this, for Sony Pictures’ Fury. Thankfully, you will have to click to play the ads.
