Why are Personalized Placements and IAP Promo being deprecated?
Unity has deprecated Personalized Placements and IAP Promo in order to reallocate resources for two recent live ops acquisitions, deltaDNA and ChilliConnect. Incorporating these companies will provide a holistic platform with which to engage players, improve user experiences, increase retention, and build robust, profitable businesses. If you've already implemented IAP Promo or Personalized Placements, they will continue to function normally until March 31, 2020. This allows ample time to remove them from your game. After March 31st, these features will be removed from the developer dashboard.
We encourage you to read about deltaDNA’s robust CRM and messaging tool, and are happy to facilitate introductions. For an alternative to Personalized Placement’s machine learning optimization, GameTune offers a more flexible and customizable solution. GameTune is currently in beta and available for anyone to use.
What is Authorized Sellers for Apps?
Authorized Sellers for Apps (app-ads.txt) is an IAB initiative to combat fraud and create transparency in the advertising ecosystem. While implementing app-ads.txt is not manadatory, failing to do so will cause developers to lose significant revenue. For more information, see documentation on app-ads.txt support.
