Google announced they have given AdWords advertisers more time to convert over from the standard text ads format to the expanded text ads format that went live in July but has been in testing since April.

Now you have until January 31, 2017 to make the switch. Google said:

To make sure you have ample time to test and iterate your expanded text ads for the holidays, we are giving advertisers more time to upgrade your creatives.
