Over one billion people use Google Maps services every month. On the Google Maps app, these users are often searching for local businesses - from restaurants, to car dealerships, to dentists, and more. Recently, we launched a new version of the Google Maps app for Android, iPhone, and iPad where we introduced several new features. Today we're introducing an updated ad experience we think is more attractive for users and more effective for advertisers.

Yes, ads in Google's mobile Maps applications. Fantastic.

2. Monetize

Anybody surprised or upset by this is naive.

A pig that thinks everything is free doesn't realise it is being fattened up for the slaughter house.
