Back in June, Google released the Review Extension, a beta to display third-party reviews within ads.
Google has now enabled this feature for all advertisers and AdWords accounts, which they should see in the next few days within the Ad Extensions dropdown menu in AdWords. Not to be confused with Seller Ratings Extensions, Review Extensions give advertisers the ability to share a paraphrased or exact quote from a third-party source.

The Review Extension is yet another way to increase the real estate that an ad takes up on the results page. What really sets the Review Extension apart from other ad extensions is its level of personability. Customers are able to not only trust but relate more to a product/ service and brand advertised within an ad, when they are presented with a positive review alongside the source.
