Google Analytics for Firebase: New Look and New Features

November 18, 2017 No Comments
If you use Google Analytics for Firebase to measure your apps, you’ll notice something familiar today: a new look and feel that’s more consistent with your Google Analytics experience.

These new elements echo some of the changes we made to Google Analytics earlier this year — the updates should help bridge the gap for anyone who uses both Google Analytics and Google Analytics for Firebase. We’ve also added new reports and cards that will make the Google Analytics for Firebase Dashboard more timely and helpful.

Real-Time Data 

We are now providing you with more real-time information throughout Google Analytics for Firebase to give you a better read on what’s happening in your app.

Inside the Google Analytics for Firebase Dashboard, you’ll now find a real-time card, much like the one on the Google Analytics Home. It shows details on the number of active users in the past 30 minutes. You’ll also see the top conversion events logged by the app. You can configure these conversions so you can track app events that are most important to your team.


The new Google Analytics for Firebase Dashboard

 
Google Analytics for Firebase has a brand new stability card that reports on data from Firebase Crash Reporting and Firebase Crashlytics. It displays the percentage of users who have not had their app crash, so you can see just how stable your app is.

Latest Release 

The new Latest Release report lets app developers track the adoption and stability of new app versions within a few hours of release.

The report also contains a real-time card with an app version filter that lets you see which users have adopted the latest version of a release and know whether any versions have crashed in the past 30 minutes. It also lets you measure your users’ level of engagement.

Same Great Analytics 

The updated experience is more consistent with Google Analytics, but one thing hasn’t changed: Google Analytics for Firebase users still get the same great app-centric reporting and analysis they’re used to for Android and iOS. Our engineers are working on developments and new features we’ll share in the months to come.

To see the new look and updated features, check out your Firebase project now. (Don’t have one yet? Sign up!)
