Google Ads recently launched the new device type ‘TV Screens’ for use in Display, Video and Shopping campaigns. This makes a total of 4 device types available for those campaign types: TV Screens, Mobile Phones, Tablets, and Computers. According to Google, they have created this device type because studies have reported that, “On average, users watch over 180 million hours of YouTube on TV screens every day.” By offering this device on image/video-based campaign and ad types, Google is hoping to catch more of this demographic.
When targeting TV Screens on an applicable campaign, your Display, Video, or Shopping ads will show on YouTube for users with ‘Internet to TV Screen’ devices like Chromecast or Smart TV. Users can watch and/or interact with your ads using their mouse, remote, or any other device they are using to control YouTube on their TV Screen. Device bid adjustments are also available for TV Screens on Video and Display campaigns. However, the bid adjustment option is not available for TV Screens on Shopping campaigns at this time.
The creation of this device type within the Google Ads platform offers advertisers an exciting opportunity to capture the attention of audiences that enjoy watching YouTube content on a larger screen. As more and more ‘Internet to TV Screen’ devices become available and widely used, this demographic is likely to grow exponentially in size.
