LinkedIn launches autoplay mobile video ads
Posted on October 17, 2017
LinkedIn has announced a closed beta for testing video ad units as Sponsored Content. This comes just two months after enabling native videos in the LinkedIn Feed. Beta testers include Prudential Financial and Microsoft Canada.
The video ads will autoplay and appear as a standalone unit with a “Promoted” label to distinguish them as paid content. They are only being tested on mobile at this time.
