As per the latest announcement by Google, the Customer Match is widely available. In addition to that, it offers its users a robust tool through which they can identify all the problems with its tool.

With a $50,000 lifetime spend and more, the company is giving access to all the policy-compliant advertisers. The revolutionary tool allows you to access particular segments of your customer base to give them a custom message at the appropriate time. It is possible by uploading first-party customer data, which Google matches against the users. With Customer Match, you can use first-party data to give Google a comprehensive idea about your existing customers beyond its understanding.

Now, more advertisers can access Customer Match since May 2021. However, with time, other users can open up Customer Match, such as:

  • Users who have a policy-compliant history of almost 90 days in Google Ads and a lifetime spend of more than $50,000 can use Customer Match with similar audiences to evaluate the performance, make changes to the bid for their audiences, target their audience, and exclude the audience from their campaigns.
  • Users with policy-compliant accounts have access to Customer Match, and they can use the tool to evaluate performance and exclude audiences from their campaigns.

To give you a better insight into what features are available to which users, here is a table that can help you understand it:
