- App Open: App open ads are a special ad format intended for publishers wishing to monetize their app load screens. App open ads can be closed by your users at any time. App open ads are shown when users launch your app*.
*Users need to launch your app at least once to display App open ads from the next times they bring your app to the foreground.

Ads widgets set on your home page can only display Banner format ads (Interstitial or App Open formats are not displayed in an ad widget on the home page).

- AdMob guidelines state "Don’t implement ads immediately before or after app open ads."
Therefore ads widgets won't be shown on your home page if an App open ad has been displayed when opening the app, ads widget will be shown however while browsing the app when you come back to the home page of your app.

** Native ads are only shown on the following home page content widget templates:
