Create an Instant Experience ad

You can take advantage of Facebook's Instant Experiences to attract and emotionally engage your audience with your ads on mobile. Instant Experiences are Facebook's full-screen mobile experience that open from ads in the News Feed to reveal immersive multimedia experiences that engage users in a unique way. See Facebook's help article About Instant Experience to learn more.

You can use Instant Experience ads in External Website, Brand Awareness and Mobile App Install campaigns. Note that because Instant Experiences are designed for mobile devices, Instant Experience ads only support placement in the Mobile Feed. You cannot use Instant Experience ads with carousel format.
