So although about Half of them call Google Ads, Google AdWords, Only 20% of people use Google Search Console, webmaster tools. I conducted a poll on both to see if the new brand persisted. Obviously, this will take time, but the new brand persisted to a large extent.
Google changed its name to Webmaster Tools (previous sitemap) To Google Search Console 6 years ago. Google Ads only changed its name 3 years ago, Plus the AdWords name has been around much longer than the name of Webmaster Tools.
That being said-I received more than 1,600 votes in this Twitter poll, and 20% of them said they still called it Google Webmaster Tools, but 80% said it was Google Search Console.
This is the poll:
Do you still call it Google Webmaster Tools or Google Search Console?

I want to know why 20% of people still call it Webmaster Tools? Is it because Bing calls them webmaster tools?
