    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.
