Hey all – thank you so much for all of your feedback around this change. We understand that this was a feature that many of you used in various situations, including the ability for Moderators to highlight or distinguish messages in Chat, and we agree that is important. We are listening to your ideas and feedback in this area – stay tuned for updates!
To provide context as to why we’ve made the decision to remove the original functionality of the /me command, we wanted to address the way this feature was being used to perpetrate abuse against members of our community. While we recognize this change is frustrating for some, the safety of our community remains our top priority.
Setting this to a partial release status as the majority of ads on web and TV apps should now have normalized sound. We are still continuing the work on this and will update the status again when it is fully complete!

Haha I was about to fill a support ticket about that :)
I don't know this much about USA, but I know many country have strong consumer protection laws regarding volume of advertising on TV (a quick check shows some laws emitted by the FCC). In some countries these laws can also be applied to internet.
Overall it would make the experience more "enjoyable"...
Either you keep the loud advertising or you keep the three 30 seconds ads every 15 minutes ;)
