Are google ads and google adwords the same?

Yes. Google ads were formerly called google adwords ever since google first started the program. However, recently google renamed google adwords, and in 2019 they are called google ads.

Google probably renamed google adwords to google ads to make it easier for new businesses to understand and adopt the advertising program. Adwords as a name must have been a turn off for new advertisers.
