Interactive Wake Screens

Interactive Wake screen ads on Fire tablet allow shoppers to interact with an ad to explore unique features, benefits, or experiences tied to the product being advertised. By providing a hands-on experience, advertisers can reveal unique product aspects and delight customers through various interactive components such as changing color/message, product demos, etc. on the the Fire tablet wake screen.

Experience Overview

Key features of an Interactive wake screen:

  • Background video: an animated background (10 seconds maximum) that tells a sequential story
  • Breakpoint: a point in the ad experience where the background video pauses and waits for user interaction. Each creative may include up to 3 breakpoints.
  • Hotspot: a transparent area on the wake screen where the user can tap to continue the experience.
  • Indicator animation: an animation that appears on the wake screen during the breakpoint, which indicates to the user where they can interact to continue the experience
