California: In a bid to help developers monetise their apps and games, Google has announced a new method called Rewarded Products.
The new product is available in open beta in the Google Play Console. As described on the official Android Developers blog, the method makes it easy for Google Play developers to increase their monetised user base. Gamers can choose to watch a video ad in exchange for virtual goods or in-game currency.
Developers can add this monetisation method to any app using the Google Play Billing Library or Android Interface Definitions Library (AIDL) with a few additional API calls. The Rewarded Products use AdMob technology that gives access to range of content from advertisers which are currently working with Google.
