With right-side text ads gone, Google is testing a new, longer look for text ads that can display across devices in any ad position.

Expanded Text Ads are the next generation of the standard AdWords Text Ad. This new ad type provides longer, more controllable messaging in your ads. Expanded Text Ad also features:

Two headlines

This ad type has two headline fields. The second headline is concatenated to the first headline field, separated by a dash. On mobile, the combined headline fields may wrap to a second line.

More characters

Both headlines contain 30 characters each, more than standard text ads. Double-width characters such as Chinese, Japanese, and Korean allow for 15 characters.

Expanded description

There is now a single description line with an expanded limit of 80 characters. Truncation and ellipsification have been minimized to make ad display more predictable.

URL customization

Instead of inputting a display URL for your ad, the URL is calculated from the landing page and path fields (path1 and path2), that indicate to a user where they will be directed on a click. Final URL and tracking URL behavior remain the same.
