GMB Reviews in Location settings

Hello

 

I am trying to figure out how to get a client's Google + / Google My Business reviews to show up in the ad as a location extension.  I heard this can be accomplished by syncing the GMB page to the Adwords Account:

However I have linked the account to the GMB and the Reviews don't show.  I also heard that you have to have Adwords Express to run these ads:

But then I also read that you don't have to have adwords express for these reviews to show up:

I am so confused - can someone please help!

The quick answer is there is no set way. All you can do is link your GMB w/ Adwords, and enable location extensions in your ads. It's purely algorithmic what parts of the extension are displayed in the ad. The Adwords Express answer was true years ago when it was actually called Boost, but that's no longer true.

This issue was discussed a week or so ago in the community. The reality is is that they don't appear as frequently as they used to, and even when they did, it didn't seem to last that long. It also seemed it was something they were testing for quite some time.
