360 Video Ad?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello there,

I'm working with a client who wants to upload a 360 video, and turn it into an ad. Am I correct in understanding that once it's a video on youtube, we can then simply select the youtube video in AdWords when we run a video ad? Thank you!

Hi Rachel,

 

Once the video ad is successfully hosted on YouTube, then you can paste its URL and add it to an ad group in your AdWords account. No relevant restrictions are applicable in terms of kind of video.

 

I am not sure which type of video ad campaign you have on mind, the below snip shows the entry box to add the video URL for a standard video discovery ad in my own AdWords account.

I am not sure though whether or not YT can host 360 videos. If you need to be 100% sure about it beforehand, please post a query in the relevant YT community linked-to below:

Thanks Lakatos!
It looks like Youtube can host 360 videos here: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6178631?hl=en

I just wasn't sure if they could also be served as ads, also or if they are something different entirely!
