The following updates reflect Unity Ads products and features released between December 1 2021–January 1 2022.
Meta Audience Network now available in Unity Mediation
Meta Audience Network is now available for in-app bidding within Unity Mediation, now in beta. Publishers can now get self-serve and streamlined access to a premium demand source, making it simpler to maximize revenue.
This latest ad network addition to Unity Mediation gives developers access to comprehensive demand to increase competition for impressions. Publishers can get enhanced tools to set pricing strategies, bid competitively, and maximize overall ad fill.
Unity Mediation Ad Source setup improvements
Open authentication for AdMob and Ad Source validation is now available for Unity Mediation users. This will help publishers get started with third-party ad networks faster while also seeing if ad sources have been successfully set up.
New Unity Mediation SDK update
SDK version 0.3.0 of Unity Mediation offers Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL) support for serving contextual ads to users in China. This law protects the collection and processing of personal data of Chinese citizens.
Currently, if your app is set up to use bidding, the Unity Mediation SDK only ingests PIPL opt-in consents for bidding sources and may collect and process personal data from users if the required consent signals are passed into the SDK.
See the Unity package, Android, and iOS API references for details, as well as the Unity Mediation Privacy Guidelines for more information on PIPL support.
