 > Is the service is popular enough for core developers to have heard of it
 before? Is it “mainstream?”

 I'd say so, yes. This service is quite big and has been around for many

 > If similar services are already supported, how does this service compare
 in terms of size, features, and backing?

 I don't think there's a similar service already supported, but haven't
 checked closely.

 > Does this service have a large following on Twitter, Facebook, or other
 social media?  Is its Twitter account verified?

 It does not have a dedicated Twitter account.

 > Is its oEmbed endpoint clearly established and properly documented?
 (Sometimes, they are just a developer’s pet project that may not be

 Documentation could be better, but I think that's a known thing.

 > Does the oEmbed endpoint work with WordPress’ oEmbed auto-discovery? If
 not, could it be made to work with additional HTML tags or attributes
 being added to the allow-list?

 It does not, simply because Data Studio reports don't contain the
 necessary HTML tags for auto discovery to work.

 > Does the service make an effort to build relationships with developers,
 such as through robust APIs?

 A robust API has been available for a while, see

 > How old is the service?

 6 years (since 2016)

 > Does it have a well-established Wikipedia article? (Seriously.)

 Yes, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Data_Studio

 > Has anyone written a WordPress plugin that leverages the service in some
 way, whether adding it as an oEmbed provider, creating a shortcode, or
 leveraging other APIs of the service? Do these plugins have any noticeable
 adoption or traction that would indicate usage and demand?

 I could only find https://wordpress.org/plugins/embed-google-data-studio/,
 which is a very new plugin and thus does not have noticeable adoption yet.

 > Is the provider frequently proposed?

 I think this is the first time.
