AMP Google and projects

Nevertheless, developers work on a special version of AMP Google, which is able to work with online shops. A user can change parameters, compare products and buy something on pages that use this technology.

- User CSSs are not supported
AMP Google pages can still use advertising blocks and analytics elements.
