AdWordsApp.​VideoAdGroupDevices

Starting point for device-dependent video ad group configurations.

Typical usage:

 var mobileBidModifier = videoAdGroup.devices().getMobileBidModifier();

Device bid modifiers are multipliers applied to the ad group's bids. For instance, a mobile bid modifier of 1.1 increases a bid to 110% of its original value on mobile devices, and changes a bid of $5.00 to $5.50. The AdWords UI would render this setting as +10%.

If you set a device bid modifier at both campaign- and ad group-level in a single campaign, the ad group bid modifier will be used when determining your bid unless the campaign bid modifier is set to -1, a special value which will opt the entire campaign out of the device type regardless of any ad group bid modifiers that may have been set.

If an ad group does not have a bid modifier for a device, its effective bid modifier is inherited from its campaign, which in turn defaults to 1 if the bid modifier is not set.

For more information about bid modifiers, please see the AdWords Help Center article.
