Could you provide a link to this? I can't find it anywhere.
If it's true though, that's gonna suck. Annotations can be used for little quick edits to patch up any mistakes. If they remove it, the person is going to have to proof watch the entire video in order to check any mistakes. That's time consuming.
But then again, annotations do have their problems. In full screen desktop Youtube, if there is an annotation where the title or the buttons appear, you have to exit out of full screen and click it. That's one of the gripes I have with Youtube. And as SB said, SUBSCRIBE TO MY CHANNEL annotations also suck.
Nevertheless, I'm kinda confused why annotations are being removed.
