What Google is trying to do here is eliminate the whole idea of a separate mobile, desktop, display, native, video, et cetera, strategy. Their central proposition is: give us all your assets, tell us what success looks like for your campaign and our engine will figure out the right creative for the right user on the right device at the right price.
