The new Google Keyword Planner works in a similar way as the Google External Keyword Tool. There are key differences though which you can read all about on the following Google AdSense Help page: Keyword Planner has replaced Keyword Tool

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Basically, Google Keyword Planner has the same features as Google AdWords Keyword tool. There are some differences, though. Google Keyword Planner is missing on some features Google AdWords Tool used to offer. These are:

- data breakdown by device. Now you see traffic stats for desktop and mobile devices all together. There's no any division between these types of data any more.
- setting the match type for search volumes is also no longer available Now, you get # of searches stats for the exact keyword match only.

But the tool also offers some new useful features, such as:

- new traffic-related metrics (taken from Traffic Estimator);
- the ability to separate ad groups from keywords in a plan;
- the ability to specify a country, a city or a region to get keyword ideas for.

As for the other functionality, basically it remained the same.

I wonder what the 'ability to specify a country to get keyword ideas for' is all about! Can you explain it further mbeelow?

Sure.

Login your Keyword Planner account -> Jump to the 'Tools and Analysis' tab -> there, in the left-upper corner you can specify country, language, local search engine, etc. to get keyword suggestions for.
