Supporting SimbaODBCDriverforGoogleBigQuery_3.0.0.1001-Linux.tar.gz will be delivered in October in DI:Embedded version DI:2023.21:E, which means Datasphere Wave 2023.22 or Wave 2023.23.

Refer to SAP Note 2984828 - SAP Datasphere Release & Delivery Schedule  to get the up-to-date release date. 

Until Wave 2023.23 is delivered, only SimbaODBCDriverforGoogleBigQuery_2.3.1.1001-Linux.tar.gz is supported for Google Big Query. 

Have in mind that SimbaODBCDriverforGoogleBigQuery_2.3.1.1001-Linux.tar.gz is no longer available for download. 
Therefore, waiting for Wave 2023.23 could be the single alternative.
