It’s already hard to tell how your text ads will render these days — two headlines or three, how many extensions, etc. Now, Google is testing a carousel of text ads on mobile.

Spotted by SEMrush, the ads carousel appears under a “People also considered” heading below the first ad. Note, this is appearing on a brand query for “xfinity” and Xfinity’s own ad does appear at the top, with a full set of extensions.
