This week, Facebook announced that augmented reality ads would now be making their way into people's News Feeds.
With both Facebook and Snap making AR ads an increasing priority, ad agencies have started cranking up their efforts to master the format and are scrambling to figure out where it fits in the digital advertising landscape.
Currently, agencies including BBDO, OMD, Wavemaker, Glow and Avatarlabs are trying everything from building dedicated AR teams, to conducting internal demos, to dedicated Slack channels focused on AR ad craft. Some are even hosting happy hours to get employees and clients better acquainted with AR concepts.
