AdSense discontinuing mobile apps in favor of mobile web

AdSense announced today that they will be discontinuing their Android and iOS mobile apps by the end of 2019.

Update November 18, 2019: AdSense sent Publishers an email today, stating they will stop supporting the AdSense mobile application "over the next few months." That probably means it will continue to work through early 2020.

They will be replaced by an improved mobile web interface:
By investing in a common web application that supports all platforms, we will be able to deliver AdSense features optimized for mobile much faster than we can today.
Neither the AdSense Android app nor the iOS app been updated since late 2017. They haven't even been updated to use the current AdSense logo, which was introduced a year ago.
That said, the current AdSense web experience on mobile isn't great. You can access your account, but it's just the desktop version of the site. For now, if you want to check your page views and earnings on the go, I recommend continuing to use the app.


There isn't a solid timeline yet, other than the apps being removed from the app stores by the end of 2019.

  • "Later this year" AdSense will "announce improvements to the AdSense mobile web interface"
  • The AdSense Android and iOS apps will be "deprecated in the coming months"
  • The AdSense Android and iOS apps will be discontinued and removed from the apps stores by the end of the year.
