Even though Spotlight Moments is still in test, it has already shown signs of being useful. Advertisers who used Video Reach Campaigns with in-stream, in-feed, and Shorts got 54% more views at a 42% lower cost per impression (CPM) than advertisers who only used in-stream. In tests, Video View Campaigns got the same results as in-stream only: 40% more views and a 30% lower cost-per-view.

As planned, all marketers will be able to use Spotlight Moments starting in November.
