    That's as it should be. You don't change it. There's a very obvious reason why its like this.

    unless you think using peoples phone data is acceptable (its not)

    Yes, but then how come some apps like 2048 have Ads that run even without WiFi?

    Hello @ExbowFTW ,

    Unity Ads works with any type of internet connection. Problem is how fast your connection is, because it takes some time on first launch of the game to download videos over internet. For 3G,4G mobile connections there is no problem, but if your using old school mobile data conn etc. it may take time.

    Regards,

    Bumping soo many years later, but is this still the case?

    I'm finding that my Ads will only display when I'm on a Wifi Network..

    Game is still in OpenBeta and thus distributed via TestFlight

    Unity Ads works without wifi. The videos might take a bit longer to load, depending on your connection. And there might be some campaigns that exclusively target wifi. But in general, there should be no problem getting ads while on a cellular networks.

    If you are having issues, please open a support ticket and we'll see if we can find out the problem.
