Do you mean Ads are automatically shown when the app is installed from Google Play Store?

Yes, you don’t have to do anything, you only have to upload the apk on the PlayStore, you will see your ads.

I do not think App approval will take 2 - 10 days.
Because if you write description carefully and clearly then it can be approved within hours or maximum 1day.
But as more users are requesting approval it is increasing slowly.
Firstly my two apps were approved in five to seven hours but when I requested for approval last week it took almost one day for apprpval.
Overall this system is working great and also Kodular Staffs.:heart_eyes:
