AdMob Interstitial Ads to your Android App

Interstitial ads

Interstitial ads are full-screen ads that cover the interface of their host app. They’re typically displayed at natural transition points in the flow of an app, such as between activities or during the pause between levels in a game. When an app shows an interstitial ad, the user has the choice to either tap on the ad and continue to its destination or close it and return to the app.

in MainActivity add this code.

private InterstitialAd mInterstitialAd;

Add following code inside oncreate method.

//Interstitial Ads
AdRequest adRequest1 = new AdRequest.Builder().build();

InterstitialAd.load(this,"ca-app-pub-3940256099942544/1033173712", adRequest1, new InterstitialAdLoadCallback() {
@Override
public void onAdLoaded(@NonNull InterstitialAd interstitialAd) {
// The mInterstitialAd reference will be null until
// an ad is loaded.
mInterstitialAd = interstitialAd;
Log.i(TAG, "onAdLoaded");
if (mInterstitialAd != null) {
mInterstitialAd.show(MainActivity.this);
} else {
Log.d("TAG", "The interstitial ad wasn't ready yet.");
}
}

@Override
public void onAdFailedToLoad(@NonNull LoadAdError loadAdError) {
// Handle the error
Log.i(TAG, loadAdError.getMessage());
mInterstitialAd = null;
}
});

in buid.gradle(:app) add following dependencies.

implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:20.1.0'
