At that time the features was introduced in the U.S and U.K. for select major brands including American Express, The Home Depot, Macy’s and Sony Pictures.
An official Pinterest blog post reads:
Brands advertising with this kind of Promoted Video can create an episodic viewing experience. With additional videos that run alongside the primary video, you can create a playlist of ideas. When someone is done watching your first video, the next starts playing automatically. In this way, people on Pinterest get a series of ideas from your brand.
Now, the Pinterest Auto Play Promoted Videos feature is expanded to more brands including Universal Pictures, Visa, Procter & Gamble, Pillsbury, Toyota, L’Oreal, Adidas and Tesco. The company added that the feature will be rolled out to all advertisers in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand in the coming month.
