Microsoft is bringing support for Playable Ads to Windows 10, this feature will allow you to see how an app works without having to download or install it from the Store first. The program’s preview launched last week in the Windows Dev Center. Once advertisers start to take advantage of it, you’ll able to stream an app or game for three minutes as though it was installed on your device.
Enabling interactive ads such as this will enable users to make better choices about whether to purchase or install an app or not. Additionally, users wont have to leave the current app context after ad click since these are inline expandable ads. Advertisers on the other hand can make their Ads playable with just few clicks, no special coding is required.
The new feature is currently in limited preview; Microsoft is yet to announced when it’ll become more widely available.
