[UWP][WIn10][XAML C++] Ads Interstitial video for PC/Tablet or mobile RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am new to ads. I have the following questions:

    1. In Windows dev center, I create AdUnit ID and name specifically for PC/Tablet or Mobile . I am confused. For UWP, the target devices may be PC/Tablet/Mobile etc. Do we need to put the all the AdUnit IDs and names into the target app or just use one of the AdUnit ID/name ?

    2. I have debug the Interstitial video in PC without adding 'Connected Service', it seems everything ok. Do I need to add 'Connected Service' to my project ?

  • Hi Erik,

    For UWP, you can create two ad units (one for PC and one for mobile) and use the appropriate one depending on the device type. You can identify the devicetype at runtime, using device family. We are working on improving this experience and enabling creation of a single ad unit for UWP apps as well, will be made available in the future.

    You might also find this blog useful, to answer your questions regarding UWP app development and monetization.

    Hope this is helpful,
