Google Ads scripts now supports asset-based video ads

Starting today, Google Ads scripts supports the new asset-based video ads. This replaces the previous media-based video ads. If you have a script that creates new video ads, you must migrate your code by February 28, 2022, or else your script will begin to fail with errors after that date. Media-based video ads will no longer be supported.

This follows the same change in Google Ads API v9. Working with assets gives you greater flexibility and ease of use as they are building blocks for various ad types across networks.

If you don’t create new video ads, you aren’t affected.

For instructions on how to create an asset, view our documentation on the YouTubeVideoAssetBuilder. Once you've created an asset, you can use it when creating video ads of various types.
