Hello,
we are planning to switch our current AdMob implementation to the AdManager one in order to benefit a broader amount of features and possibilities.
The implementation went very well and we are able to see the new AdManager test ads.

Now we got a question: is it possible to use within the same app both AdManager and AdMob?
Our mobile app (both iOS and Android) is available in different countries and we would like to turn-on AdManager in some countries and AdMob in others in order to compare performances.
Our tech infrastructure is ready for this kind of test but at SDK level we can set just one application ID for com.google.android.gms.ads.APPLICATION_ID and GADApplicationIdentifier.

How could we handle this situation? Is there a way to reach our objective?

Thank you in advance

Giacomo

Hi Giacomo,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

With regard to your concern, there's no policy violation for using both ad management platform for Mobile Ads SDK, so it safe to use it on production environment. As long as you've followed all necessary implementation policies (guidance, discouraged and recommended implementation) for both platforms, then we recommend no further action on your end. You may also check this HC article which contain information comparing Ad Manager, AdSense, and AdMob.

Hello,
thank your for your response.

We have followed all necessary implementation policies but at the moment we are stuck because we don't know how to set the ad managament platform ID (com.google.android.gms.ads.APPLICATION_IDGADApplicationIdentifier).
As I said in the previous message we would like to use both oh them (AdManager/AdMob) and then choose what to use based on a remote configuration. As per documentation, we can't set the AdManager/AdMob application ID programmatically and, for this reason, we don't know how to move on since we can only set just one of them into the Manifest/Plist.

 How could we deal with that?

Thank you,
Giacomo

Hi Giacomo,

Thank you for your response.

With regard to your concern, as far as I know, you can't update and it is not recommended to update the info.plist programmatically. But, if you want to still implement that, what we can offer now is that you post this to other developer forum like StackOverflow as this is out of our scope. We hope that you get a positive response from them the soonest time possible.
