Does AdWords perform differently in the new AdWords experience?

While this AdWords may look and feel different, your campaigns will run the same as they run today. Also, most changes you make will be reflected across both experiences. For example, if you add a new keyword, it's in your account whether you're viewing it through the new or previous experiences.
For certain advertisers, changes you make to some reporting features aren’t reflected across both AdWords experiences. To learn more, please see this article.

Why aren't all features available?

Some features aren't available yet in the new AdWords experience and may appear grayed out. To use these, just click the tool icon in the top right corner of your account and select Return to previous AdWords.

We're continuing to add new features to the new experience. To see which features have launched recently, check the recently-added features page. Or, see the lists of available and unavailable features.
