Google Analytics for mobile apps properties are no longer being processed

You may have received an email from Google, saying they have stopped processing data from your Google Analytics account for your mobile app(s).

A recent copy of the information from Google is as follows:

As of October 31, 2019, we have stopped processing data from your Google Analytics account(s) for the properties (listed below) that are using the older style of Google Analytics mobile apps reporting and the legacy Google Analytics Services SDK.

You will continue to have reporting access until January 31, 2020, after which your property and its data will be permanently deleted. See below for the remaining decommissioning timeline.

What does "stopped processing" mean?

New data you send to the Google Analytics properties listed (above) will not be serviced and will therefore, not appear on your reports. This will appear as though you are no longer sending app data to Google Analytics.

What will happen to my Google Analytics properties listed above?

Reporting access through our UI and API access will remain available for these properties' historical data until January 31, 2020.

After our service is fully turned down in February 2020, these legacy properties will no longer be accessible via our Google Analytics UI or API, and the associated data will be deleted from Google Analytics servers. In advance of this turndown, we recommend that you retrieve this historical data through report exports.


How does this affect mobile apps from Aiir?

Our mobile applications utilise the Google Analytics service that is being discontinued by Google, therefore analytics information will no longer be reported and cease to be available once Google end this service.

We are exploring an alternative solution but don't have any further information to share at the time of writing this article.

We understand if this is a concern for your use of our mobile applications, so please get in touch if you wish to discuss this further.

This change only affects analytics data about events within apps. Reports about the number of installs and updates is unaffected and can be found by following our instructions.
