In this year, Google has provided a study regarding the partnership with Ipsos, which presents heavy use of search and app stores amongst smart-phone users. Dischler had mentioned that the recent pilot program, which was showing ads in the search results on Google Play, is specifying that the company will be talking a lot about the ads in Google Play at the Google I/O, which is planned later in this month.
