Last week we asked you if you would pay to watch YouTube videos, following Google’s announcement of subscription-based YouTube channels. The results were pretty much unanimous, and if we go by them, it seems that Google’s decision might not be the most successful one. Only time will tell whether users really stick to this opinion, or if this is only caused by the novelty of Google’s move.
Out of 841 votes in total, the breakdown was as follows: 4.4% said they will pay for YouTube content, 8.5% will pay, but only if it’s the only option, and a full 87% of the voters will not pay a dime to watch YouTube content.
Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

This week’s poll question is: What Is Your Favorite Google Product Announced This Week?
Risking your scorn for yet another Google-based poll, this has truly been a busy week for Google, and one we cannot easily ignore. As usual, Google I/O brought a flurry of new features and products, which are going to affect you somehow, no matter how you look at it. From a new Google Maps preview to a Google Talk replacement, this has definitely been an exciting week for Google and Google users. Did you get a chance to try some of the new features? Which one is your favorite? Which one looks like it would be the most useful in your every day life?
Can’t see your favorite announcement? Be sure to tell us what it is in the comments! We’d also love to hear why you chose the way you did, and what makes your choice the best.
