What’s coming to Display & Video 360 over the next few weeks 

Custom Intent Audiences on CTV devices

Custom Intent audiences on Display & Video 360 will soon be available  across connected TV devices (US only). 

With Custom Intent audiences you’ll be able to  go beyond DV360’s predefined In-Market categories and use your own keywords, URLs (websites), and apps to reach specific people as they are making a purchase decision related to your product or service.

For Display campaigns, use Custom Intent (Display, Video) to create a custom intent audience using in-market keywords — simply entering keywords and URLs related to products and services your ideal audience is researching across sites and apps. For Video ads on YouTube, use Custom Intent (YouTube) to create an audience of users who have searched for certain terms on Google.

Increased Coverage of Google Audiences on CTV devices

Expanded coverage of Google’s In-Market & Affinity audiences on connected TV devices will soon be available on DV360 (US only). You’ll be able to access available audiences by filtering to CTV eligibility within Audience targeting.

Ads Creative Studio Customizable Video Export to Campaign Manager 360
