Google is very enthusiastic about mobile advertising. With the message extension it is expanding the options available to advertisers as well as new reporting features.

Until now though when it came to what you could do for mobile users it was pretty limited. You could use the click to call feature, and select call only ads. These would show during business hours. You also had location extensions that are valuable on mobiles. These can also enable ads and promoted pins to show in google maps.
