There are a few reasons why you might be noticing that you can’t skip YouTube ads anymore. This change was likely made in order to help the site make more money. One reason might be that the site is now using an auto-play feature for ads. This means that the ad will start playing automatically as soon as you open up a video. Previously, you were able to skip the ad after a certain amount of time.
