Device ads

Device ads, which incorporate both display and video creatives, seamlessly appear within the user interface of certain Amazon devices with screens like Fire TV, Fire tablet, and Echo Show, as well as services like Prime Video. They offer an opportunity for advertisers to connect with customers before they click into digital content that may not support advertisements.

Device ads help advertisers connect with customers throughout their daily lives at meaningful moments.
