Publishers can now sell native and mobile video ads programmatically through Google‘s DoubleClick, the company said Friday.

The ads can be sold through either DoubleClick’s open auctions or the private marketplaces run by publishers, and can appear in websites or in apps.

The system will soon enable buyers to purchase an ad to run across multiple kinds of screens in one shot as opposed to buying app and web inventory separately, Google said.
