Does SDKBOX admob support Designed For Families flags? There’s no actual constraints if app is rated “Ages 5 & Under”, “Ages 6 to 8”, and/or “Ages 9 to 12”, but for Mixed-audience apps AD request must contain “is_designed_for_families” flag and call tagForChildDirectedTreatment() method for ad requests served to a child audience.

Here’s doc reference: Using AdMob with the Designed for Families program

Thanks a lot!

Any new with this?

I’ve tried using Designed For Families flag with current setup:

Copyright © 2015 SDKBOX Inc. v1.0.0.15
installed packages:
v2.2.5.3 googleanalytics
v2.2.5.3 admob
v2.2.5.3 chartboost
v2.2.5.3 googleplayservices
v2.2.5.3 review

but got no banners at all. I’ve revoked my Designed For Families flag and automagically I got ads back.

There is a code sample here given by google. May it be useful for adding support?

PS: I targeted Ages 5 & Under and Ages 6 to 8, if that matters for testing purposes. My game had been run at several countries while being ‘designed for families’ but no ads were shown at all during that period.

You can set it like this.

{
    "android": {
        "AdMob": {
            "test": false,
            "ads": {
                "gameover": {
                    "type": "interstitial",
                    "id": "ca-app-pub-",
                    "is_designed_for_families": true
                }
            }
        }
    },
    "ios": {
        "AdMob": {
            "test": false,
            "ads": {
                "gameover": {
                    "type": "interstitial",
                    "id": "ca-app-pub-",
                    "is_designed_for_families": true
                }
            }
        }
    }
}

i want to know about “tagForChildThreatment” setting on sdkbox.
any function on sdkbox admob plugin?


#10

once you set “is_designed_for_families” in sdkbox_config.json
sdkbox plugin will automatically sets both is_designed_for_families and tagForChildDirectedTreatment for you, so they’ll only serve child approve ads to your app.


#11

I wanted to test it using my published app, so I went to LiveOps and, … no ‘designed for families’ check box there. Any hint if it will be soon available? Or should I republish my app for that?

Regards


#12

It should be available now.
