Google Ads Api

Google has released version 10.0 of the Google Ads API. Keep in mind, the AdWords API will sunset on April 27, 2022, which is coming up soon. So what is new in version 10 of the Google Ads API? A lot, including smart campaigns, performance max campaign upgrades, local service ads changes and much more.

Google also added this new diff page that shows the protos that were added, removed, and changed in the latest Google Ads API release. You can click the links to view the protos in our GitHub repository after they're released. You can view quick and full-context diffs in the Changed tab.
