Before installing the Teads AppLovin adapter, you will need to integrate AppLovin SDK into your application.



allprojects {
  repositories {
    maven { url  "https://teads.jfrog.io/artifactory/SDKAndroid-maven-prod" }


dependencies {
    implementation "com.applovin:applovin-sdk:11.5.1" // or higher

  // Teads inApp SDK
  implementation("tv.teads.sdk.android:sdk:5.x.x@aar") {
    transitive = true

  // Teads AppLovin Adapter
  implementation 'tv.teads.sdk.android:applovinadapter:5.x.x'

Defining a Custom network

In order to display a Teads ad using AppLovin mediation,
you need to create a new Teads custom network and a new adunit using Teads custom network.

Teads Custom Network

Follow the custom network documentation (Step. 1) on the AppLovin dashboard using the below values.

Name Value
Android Class Name com.applovin.mediation.adapters.TeadsContextAdapter

Teads Ad Unit

Follow the custom network documentation (Step. 2) on the AppLovin dashboard using the below values.

Name Value
Placement ID (PID) See information below

Please retrieve your production PID from your local account manager.

See this page for test PIDs and creative formats.

Load an ad

You will need to initialize the AppLovinSdk, then pass your Ad Unit ID that you created before,
pass the teads settings using the teadsSettings key

AppLovinSdk.getInstance(this).mediationProvider = "max"
AppLovinSdk.getInstance(this).initializeSdk {} // you will need to wait this to finish before loading an ad

val adView = MaxAdView("YOUR_AD_UNIT_ID", MaxAdFormat.MREC,this)
val settingsEncoded = TeadsMediationSettings.Builder()

adView.setLocalExtraParameter("teadsSettings", settingsEncoded)

Ad Resizing

The code below must be implemented to enable the resizing of the mediated ad slot making possible the rendering of square and vertical creatives.

Initialize the TeadsHelper first.


You can instantiate a new listener as below, the listener needs to be a class member field or strong referenced somewhere,
we keep internally a weak reference to it, so it goes garbage collected when you don't need it anymore:

listener = object : TeadsAdapterListener {
  override fun onRatioUpdated(adRatio: AdRatio) {
    val params: ViewGroup.LayoutParams = adView.layoutParams

    // Here the width is MATCH_PARENT
    params.height = adRatio.calculateHeight(adView.measuredWidth)
    adView.layoutParams = params

  override fun adOpportunityTrackerView(trackerView: AdOpportunityTrackerView) {

Use the helper to attach a listener, it will return you a UNIQUE key to reference the current listener attached.

val key = TeadsHelper.attachListener(listener)

⚠️ Before loading the ad you can define if you want to disable the ad auto refreshing. This feature on AppLovin mediation works like an ad caching system since it starts to automatically request new ads and add it to a queue to be displayed sequentially on the same ad slot.

If you do not want to disable it, use it carefully since if you received too often ads that in the end are not displayed, this is going to reduce your ad fill rate.

In order to adjust the ad refrehs interval, check the official documentation.

In order to just disable it add the following lines.

adView.setExtraParameter( "allow_pause_auto_refresh_immediately", "true" )

Finally, add it to your current ad settings for the specific ad request.

val settingsEncoded = TeadsMediationSettings.Builder()

adView.setLocalExtraParameter("teadsSettings", settingsEncoded)
