To implement Firebase Analytics for Android, follow these steps:

  1. Set up your Firebase project: Go to the Firebase Console (console.firebase.google.com) and create a new project. Add your Android app to the project by clicking on the "Add app" button and following the instructions.
  2. Set up the Firebase Android SDK in your project: In your project-level build.gradle file, add the Google services plugin: dependencies { classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:4.3.10' } In your app-level build.gradle file, add the Firebase SDK: dependencies { implementation platform('com.google.firebase:firebase-bom:29.0.0') implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-analytics-ktx' } Apply the Google services plugin at the bottom of the app-level build.gradle file: apply plugin: 'com.google.gms.google-services'
  3. Connect your app to Firebase: Download the google-services.json file from the Firebase Console. Move the google-services.json file to the app/ directory of your Android project.
  4. Initialize Firebase Analytics in your app: Open your app's main activity file. Add the following code inside the onCreate() method: // Kotlin import com.google.firebase.analytics.FirebaseAnalytics class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() { private lateinit var firebaseAnalytics: FirebaseAnalytics override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState) setContentView(R.layout.activity_main) firebaseAnalytics = FirebaseAnalytics.getInstance(this) } } // Java import com.google.firebase.analytics.FirebaseAnalytics; public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity { private FirebaseAnalytics firebaseAnalytics; @Override protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); setContentView(R.layout.activity_main); firebaseAnalytics = FirebaseAnalytics.getInstance(this); } }
  5. Log events with Firebase Analytics: You can log custom events using the logEvent() method. For example: val bundle = Bundle() bundle.putString("key", "value") firebaseAnalytics.logEvent("my_custom_event", bundle) Bundle bundle = new Bundle(); bundle.putString("key", "value"); firebaseAnalytics.logEvent("my_custom_event", bundle);
  6. Verify data in the Firebase Console: After adding analytics events to your app and running it on real devices, you can check the data in the Firebase Console. Open your project in the Firebase Console, then go to the "Analytics" section to view various reports and insights.


Remember to comply with Firebase's usage policies and guidelines while logging events with Firebase Analytics.

Note: Before implementing Firebase Analytics, make sure you have set up Firebase and added your Android app to the Firebase project.

  1. Set up your Firebase project: Go to the Firebase Console (console.firebase.google.com) and create a new project. Add your Android app to the project by clicking on the "Add app" button and following the instructions.
  2. Set up the Firebase Android SDK in your project: In your project-level build.gradle file, add the Google services plugin: dependencies { classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:4.3.10' } In your app-level build.gradle file, add the Firebase SDK: dependencies { implementation platform('com.google.firebase:firebase-bom:29.0.0') implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-analytics-ktx' } Apply the Google services plugin at the bottom of the app-level build.gradle file: apply plugin: 'com.google.gms.google-services'
  3. Connect your app to Firebase: Download the google-services.json file from the Firebase Console. Move the google-services.json file to the app/ directory of your Android project.
  4. Initialize Firebase Analytics in your app: Open your app's main activity file. Add the following code inside the onCreate() method: Kotlin: import com.google.firebase.analytics.FirebaseAnalytics class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() { private lateinit var firebaseAnalytics: FirebaseAnalytics override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState) setContentView(R.layout.activity_main) firebaseAnalytics = FirebaseAnalytics.getInstance(this) } } Java: import com.google.firebase.analytics.FirebaseAnalytics; public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity { private FirebaseAnalytics firebaseAnalytics; @Override protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); setContentView(R.layout.activity_main); firebaseAnalytics = FirebaseAnalytics.getInstance(this); } }
  5. Log events with Firebase Analytics: You can log custom events using the logEvent() method. For example: Kotlin: val bundle = Bundle() bundle.putString("key", "value") firebaseAnalytics.logEvent("my_custom_event", bundle) Java: Bundle bundle = new Bundle(); bundle.putString("key", "value"); firebaseAnalytics.logEvent("my_custom_event", bundle);
