  4. Hi Julien,
    Love the article! Here is an integration that leverages exactly that feature. It is leveraged by several major publishers and more of our clients are integrating, these features and more, in their third party applications.

    If you’d like to see a personalized demo, I would like to set it up. Do you have some time?

    Best Regards,
