Google has launched a new Chrome extension calling it the AdWords & Google Ads API Web Navi!
This extension enables advertisers to see the services or reference pages of the AdWords API and Google Ads API related to the new Google Ads experience based on the currently browsed webpage.
By installing this add-on, the tool will show the current AdWords API and Google Ads API resources, including “guides, service reference pages, report references” related to the web page of the new Google Ads experience now visited, says Google.
Just choose the tab of your interest for the API to view the relevant resources.
Divided into section resources in both the tabs include Guides, Services, and Reports for the AdWords API Resources, and Guides, Services, and Fields for the and Google Ads API Resources.
In the screenshot above the fold, you can see both of the tabs: (Left) AdWords API Resources – (Right) Google Ads API Resources.
Google explains the usage of this extension through an example as shown in the animation below:
“A user has clicked on the extension’s icon while browsing the Ad groups page of the new Google Ads experience. The extension then shows some relevant resources for the AdWords API, e.g., Objects, Methods, and Services, AdGroupService, and Adgroup Performance Report,” Google explained.
Resources will be shown when a user clicks on the Google Ads API (Beta) tab.
Google notes, the tool will update to show any new addition, update, or deletion of resources with the release of each AdWords API and Google Ads API.
For services, the tool will always show the latest version of the API.
This extension is available to download directly from the extension page.
