Google is experimenting with VR ad formats at its Area 120 workshop. The Google team is trying native, mobile VR ad format in the beginning.

Area 120’s Aayush Upadhyay and Neel Rao say, “Developers and users have told us they want to avoid disruptive, hard-to-implement ad experiences in VR. So our first idea for a potential format presents a cube to users, with the option to engage with it and then see a video ad. By tapping on the cube or gazing at it for a few seconds, the cube opens a video player where the user can watch, and then easily close, the video.

Our work focuses on a few key principles – VR ad formats should be easy for developers to implement, native to VR, flexible enough to customize, and useful and non-intrusive for users. Our Area 120 team has seen some encouraging results with a few test partners, and would love to work with the developer community as this work evolves – across Cardboard (on Android and iOS), Daydream and Samsung Gear VR”.
