Ad mediation service

Maximize ad revenue in your apps by using the Microsoft ad mediation service to serve ads from multiple popular ad networks, across ad formats. You can configure your mediation settings in the Dev Center dashboard without touching a line of code. If you let us configure mediation for you, our machine learning algorithms will help you maximize ad revenue across the markets your app supports.
