At the 2016 Games Developer’s Conference, we announced a new addition to the AdMob mediation platform: rewarded video ads. This new avenue for monetization offers users the option to engage with ads in exchange for in-app rewards. Our growing list of mediation partners includes:
- Unity Ads
Choosing AdMob for your rewarded video mediation platform gives you access to ad content from all of these networks, and allows you to develop against a single API from AdMob.
Rewarded video ads are requested and displayed using the the new
GADRewardBasedVideoAd classes. Here’s an example showing how to request a rewarded video ad on
RewardedVideoAd mRewardedVideoAd = MobileAds.getRewardedVideoAdInstance(this); mRewardedVideoAd.setRewardedVideoAdListener(this); mRewardedVideoAd.loadAd(AD_UNIT_ID, new AdRequest.Builder().build());
And here’s the iOS equivalent:
GADURewardBasedVideoAd *rewardedVideo = [GADRewardBasedVideoAd sharedInstance]; rewardedVideo.delegate = self; [rewardedVideo loadRequest:request withAdUnitID:adUnitID];
You can find additional documentation on rewarded video ads in our publishers get started guides (Android | iOS). Mediation documentation not specific to rewarded video ads can be found in the mediation get started guides (Android | iOS).
