Google will discontinue its Optimize A/B testing platform on September 30, 2023. We’ll help you migrate and maximize your testing program to one of today’s best AB testing tools.
Google Optimize is Sunsetting?
Yes. Following the transition to Google Analytics 4, Google plans to cease operations of its Optimize testing platform at the end of September.
The codebase Google built Optimize on is the same as other apps in the legacy Google Analytics codebase suite—none of which they will maintain after September 30, 2023.
Our testing and experimentation team is experienced in a wide variety of AB testing tools that provide even more robust testing and analysis capabilities. These are alternate platforms we can help your business migrate into while maximizing the value and performance of your A/B testing program. Contact us to learn how we can evolve your A/B testing program.

Optimizely is one of the most widely-used A/B testing tools available. It’s martech-stack agnostic, and they offer a hefty (~$25K or so) discount to clients migrating from Google Optimize!
Optimizely also includes a WYSIWYG editor in conjunction with its full stack capabilities, which makes implementing simple visual changes to your site extremely convenient. The platform also supports integration for complex experiments (such as testing site speed, funnel pathing updates, or more intricate features).
