Admob module deprecation

Due to article of SDK 45:

expo-ads-admob … are deprecated in favor of first-party and third-party community alternatives. Please refer to their respective documentation for more information.

On Admob - Expo Documentation - Expo Documentation

Deprecated. This module will be removed in SDK 46. … you should use react-native-google-mobile-ads instead.

But module was based on another module:

expo-ads-admob is largely based of the react-native-admob module, as the documentation and questions surrounding that module may prove helpful.

Why proposing to use react-native-google-mobile-ads instead of react-native-admob that original module is based on?

I was looking into this too, I’ve been happily using expo-ads-admob in production for a while and was bummed to find out I now have to spend time learning a new API. I ran across this thread which says basically the maintainer for react-native-admob isn’t really keeping it up to date any longer and is endorsing and supporting react-native-google-mobile-ads now.
