The news is out: Google Analytics 4 is the new solution replacing Google Universal Analytics.

Starting July 1, 2023, standard Universal Analytics properties will cease processing new data, although existing data will remain accessible for at least six months. However, in today's data-driven world, every organization relies on processing and analyzing new data. Thus, it is imperative for businesses to swiftly transition to Google Analytics 4 so as to not lose out on any critical capabilities.

Google Analytics 4 introduces a range of new and enhanced features, including:

  • Comprehensive data collection for both websites and apps, providing a better understanding of the customer journey
  • Adoption of event-based data instead of session-based data
  • Integration of privacy controls such as cookie-less measurement, behavioral and conversion modeling
  • Predictive capabilities that offer guidance without the need for complex models
  • Direct integrations with media platforms to drive actions on your website or app
