STOP! the auto play audio for rolling video ads
You just started it this week. You are driving me crazy and I have to click the tiny pause button every 5 minutes. STOP IT!
MARION FESMIRE commented
that *** guy keeps popping up and says take a quiz to see if you can retire comfortably. Freaks me out every time as it pops up quickly. He looks like **** and is not necessary.

I guess I need to find how to migrate my 30 years of archives to Gmail

Stop spam,and even legitimate mail,should not interrupt when you are reading selected mail.It diverts your attention and you stop thinking and make mistakes.
Background music should be gentle and non-intrusive

I am sick of your new policy, instituted today. Every few minutes I am getting a loud verbal ad, from nowhere. I can't find it on my screen to eliminate it an I can't turn it off. Stop these ads!
Darlene Roye commented
I also get interrupted with sound...very embarrassing. How can this be stopped?
CAROL GYZANDER commented
I completely agree! It is intrusive to have the sound suddenly come up while I am in the middle of something.
CAROL GYZANDER commented
I completely agree. I pay every month for AOL mail, and my daily business is getting interrupted with sound from ads. Please get rid of ads with sound.
PHYLLIS DEUTSCH commented
I am complaining about the same thing. The sound on the ads starts whenever it wants. There were 2 ads and they both started at the same time. I know we can't get away with no ads, but the sound has got to stop. I was talking to a client on the phone and had the mail open and an ad started. My client was wondering what was going on. Please STOP the sound on the ads.
Colleen Keyes commented
I am writing in about the same thing! All of a sudden, an ad starts playing in the upper righthand corner - the volume icon is so small that it takes forever to mute it. Visual ads littering the screen are bad enough; please stop the audio ones! I really don't want to switch to my Gmail account for daily usage. I have been with AOL since the beginning and have stayed loyal. But this may be the last straw!

STOP WITH THE ADVERTISING WITH SOUND, it turns on randomly in the middle of my conference calls.
CYNTHIA MINES commented
Yes, please stop. It's driving me crazy since I use AOL for work. Very disruptive. Much worse recently and I can't find how to turn off the sound.
PATRICK MICKEY commented
I pay for AOL service. I should not be bombarded with ads that play audio without warning.
Chris Fisch commented
Thank you AOL Team!
I've had this email address for 25 years. I sometimes get made fun of for putting down an aol.com address, but I'm used to it.
Despite GMAIL being vastly superior in every way, I've just been lazy. But you've finally driven me to move everything to GMAIL by putting in Video ADs with AUDIO in an email inbox.
Please find whoever's idea this was, and fire them.
LYNNE ADRINE commented
I agree with everything you wrote. SHAME.
CARY ESTES commented
Stop the ads with the audio. It is disruptive. I am in an office and every so often an ad starts playing and I cant figure out how to shut it up. Sometimes I am in meeting !!!!
JARED HEETER commented
I am on here to complain about the same thing. I have been using aol since aol became a thing. If you don't stop the audio ads that just blare out while reading emails I will remove my aol account forever and use a different service.
SHAME ON YOU!
DANIEL BARRETT commented
stop the videos with loud audio pop ups !!!!! I've been AOL since the 90s. This is obscene.
