How they work. If you have existing 3D assets, upload them to Google Web Designer and select one of the Swirl templates or build creative from scratch. You can also use Poly, Google’s 3D design platform to configure your 3D models for Swirl ads.
Swirl ads are available in three sizes and fullscreen expansion is optional. The ads run across Google Ad Manager inventory.
Advertisers get engagement time and type (rotation and expansion) metrics in DV360.
Why we care. The concept isn’t new, interactive ads have been around for years  from a number of ad tech vendors. This just means advertisers using DV360 can create and launch 3D ads natively within the Google ecosystem. That’s likely to hurt some of the early innovators in this space. Advanced Swirl template features include hotspots that reveal more details, a color picker and other options. For more, see the help page  .
