Universal App campaigns are now simply App campaigns

February 20, 2019

Universal App campaigns help connect your app with consumers. Today, we are simplifying the name of “Universal App campaigns” to “App campaigns.” This move will not affect campaign features or functionality, and there’s no action required for existing campaigns.

App campaigns will join Search, Display, Video, Shopping and Smart as the top-level campaign names available in Google Ads.

You’ll start to see these changes roll out over the next month. We hope this more direct name will help advertisers and developers get started with Google Ads and select the right campaign type for their business goals.
