Use responsive ads on your audience campaigns, separate from your search campaign. The Microsoft Audience Network can support two responsive ad formats: image-based ads and feed-based ads. Responsive ads automatically adjust to accommodate the sizes and shapes of native ad formats.

Image-based ads

Use image-based ads to engage your customers with eye-catching visuals. Images are compatible across different platforms, publishers and placements, allowing you to use existing assets from your campaigns on the Google Display Network and Facebook.

Feed-based ads

With feed-based ads, you can tap into your existing feeds to promote the same products to your customers in a native format. Using Dynamic Remarketing, you can remarket to customers based on the specific products they viewed or added to their shopping trolley.
