Home-page-takeover ads will now be served on the mobile application for YouTube, showing the spot like a regular video with the addition of a yellow tag designating it as an ad.

"We created a video masthead unit that makes it easier for advertisers to run home-page takeovers on YouTube across devices," a YouTube spokesperson said.
