Introducing the Native & Search API¶
Oath Ad Platforms Native & Search, from Verizon Media, represents Oath’s full suite of technology solutions for advertisers, agencies and publishers. The new brand (shown below with this logo) replaces BrightRoll, Gemini, ONE by AOL, and Yahoo for Publishers.
Oath Ad Platforms is connected to the consolidation work completed by the Oath product and engineering teams in September 2018.
Now a global brand, Oath Ad Platforms will be a visible part of the Oath family of brands in all Oath markets.
All previous references in this documentation suite to the Gemini API will now be designated as Oath Ad Platforms Native & Search API, or simply Native & Search API.
All endpoints (Resource URIs) will stay the same as in the v2 and v3 Gemini API, and not change. For example, this stays as is, even with the rebranding:
