A spokesperson confirmed to Search Engine Land that the feature is set to launch next year with further details expected to be released soon.

What are conversions? In Google Ads, a conversion happens when a user takes a specific action after clicking or viewing an ad on the Display Network. This action could be making a purchase, installing a mobile app, or signing up for an email list. Conversion tracking gives important insights into what users do after interacting with an ad.
What is account level? In Google Ads, the account level is the core layer of PPC management, dealing with billing, user permissions, and fundamental settings across all campaigns. Account-level changes, like tracking templates, ad extensions, and negative keywords, automatically apply globally to relevant campaigns.
