Verizon Media replaces Flurry Ads with new Verizon Ads SDK
The new app monetization platform for publishers integrates IAB Tech Lab's Open Measurement SDK.
Verizon Media is replacing Flurry Monetization and ONE Mobile SDK with a new Verizon Ads SDK. The company says the new SDK has been designed to support “publisher SDK size and extensibility needs,” offering app developers a simplified way to access Verizon Media’s monetization opportunities.
Why you should care
The new Verizon Ads SDK aims to streamline mobile monetization efforts for publishers. Built using a “pluggable architecture” framework, the company says app developers will no longer be forced to compromise between revenue and user experience because of the SDK size, integration costs or other factors. The SDK is available for both Android and iOS.
“With the release of the Verizon Ads SDK, app developers and publishers will now have the modern tools they need to say ‘yes’ to both revenue and user experience,” reports Verizon Media in the announcement.
Verizon Ads SDK will also integrate with IAB Tech Lab Open Measurement SDK, providing viewability measurement by third-party providers. The IAB Tech Lab integration means publishers will only have to integrate a single SDK to offer advertisers viewability measurement via their preferred vendor.
