Has anyone else seen this? I saw it when using an Android tablet.

Top right next to the Ad Choices arrow an X and when clicked:

Ad muted. Undo

This ads settings clicks through to:

I've tried unsuccessfully to repeat this on a couple of desktops.

Yep that's been there for a while. I suspect it may affect advertiser quality score if the same ads gets muted over and over.

Interesting. I haven't seen it but it sounds a lot like the feature that Taboola has on it's related content widget. I think anything that helps to show more relevant ads or related content is good for the advertising ecosystem.
