This randomized, open-label study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of atezolizumab (an engineered anti-programmed death-ligand 1 [PD-L1] antibody) in combination with carboplatin+paclitaxel with or without bevacizumab compared with treatment with carboplatin+paclitaxel+bevacizumab in chemotherapy-naïve participants with Stage IV non-squamous NSCLC. Participants will be randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio to Arm A (Atezolizumab+Carboplatin+Paclitaxel), Arm B (Atezolizumab+Carboplatin+Paclitaxel+Bevacizumab), or Arm C (Carboplatin+Paclitaxel+Bevacizumab).
