iOS Download
Android Download
  • Android Integration Help: UnityAds adapters are released as an Android Archive (AAR) file starting from version The AAR includes the required Manifest data for UnityAds if any. As a result, publishers no longer have to update their AndroidManifest manually for any generic data, such as permissions and Activities. Any other app-level placement configuration required by Unity Ads must be manually entered into the AndroidManifest..

Set up Unity Ads on the MoPub dashboard

  • Game ID and Placement ID are required.
  • Placement ID is backwards compatible with Zone ID.

Migrate Unity Ads from Custom Native Setup

  • Transfer Game ID and Placemet ID (if applicable) from the old custom native connection to the supported Unity Ads instance. Please note that if you are using Unity Ads 1.x, the Zone IDs are now renamed as Placement IDs by Unity Ads. You can input Zone IDs in the Placement ID input field, and MoPub will handle the conversions.

  • MoPub will initiate the following Unity Ads custom event class names to render the ads:

    • iOS
      • UnityAdsInterstitialCustomEvent
      • UnityAdsRewardedVideoCustomEvent
    • Android
      • com.mopub.mobileads.UnityInterstitial
      • com.mopub.mobileads.UnityRewardedVideo

Note: If you are manually entering the above-mentioned class names, migrate to the new network setup and pause the “custom native network”. If you are using your own custom event class names, you should have both the old custom native network setup & the new Unity Ads network UI setup for backward compatibility.

Note: During migration, please make sure the custom native network and the Unity Ads network are not live at the same time as this may cause revenue-impacting issues.
