How to connect with Google Analytics 4

Since Google Analytics released its new version, a whole new world of possibilities opened up for marketers to better track their performance across multiple devices and data streams.


As announced by Google: On July 1, 2023, Google Analytics Universal properties will no longer process data. You'll still be able to see your Universal Analytics reports for a period of time after this date, however, new data will only flow into Google Analytics 4 properties.
