From now on, new advertising spots will be available in almost all Google services, including YouTube, Gmail, Google Images and Maps, and the Discover news platform. The opportunities for mobile applications will also expand significantly.
Google Alphabet is the largest company engaged in digital advertising. The reason for innovations is growing competition. Companies Amazon and Facebook are gaining momentum, which is reflected in the growth of revenue from advertising Alphabet.
