This article is for 360 users who are on Universal Analytics contracts, using Google Analytics 4 properties in Beta. If you are a 360 user on a Google Analytics 4 contract, read this article instead.
For downgrading Universal Analytics properties, and other 360 products generally, to standard, refer to Downgrading from 360 to standard.
For downgrading Google Analytics 4 properties to standard, refer to the Upgrading/downgrading to/from 360 section of this article.
To date, Google has made available standard Google Analytics 4 (formerly "App + Web") properties to both Google Analytics and Google Analytics 360 users who have signed the App + Web addendum and who have signed a Universal Analytics 360 contract. We have been working on a premium version of these Google Analytics 4 properties and invite you to participate in this beta program to preview our future Google Analytics 360 offering.
Under this beta you will have the opportunity to upgrade your existing Google Analytics 4 properties to Google Analytics 360. The number of Google Analytics 4 properties that you can upgrade to 360 is equal to the number of your Universal Analytics 360 properties.
This beta and the expanded Google Analytics 360 limits apply to Google Analytics 4 property data. This program will not otherwise involve any of your existing Analytics 360 properties.
There are no service-level agreements with this beta.
We expect to offer this beta through September 30, 2023, but Google reserves the right to withdraw or otherwise revise the program and its offerings.

How to convert your property from free to 360 beta
Please discuss with your Google or Partner representative if you wish to include existing Google Analytics 4 properties in this Google Analytics 360 beta.
The upgrade process is carried out by Google engineering. Properties remain upgraded for the duration of the beta program. At the conclusion of the beta program, you have the option to enter into a contract to maintain the 360 service level of those properties, or you can downgrade the properties from 360 back to standard. Downgrading resets the property to the original standard limits.
Upgrading/downgrading to/from 360
The self-service upgrade/downgrade option is only available to Analytics properties that are linked to a Google Marketing Platform organization that has an active 360 order (learn more about orders). If you purchased Analytics through a Google Sales Partner, then the partner has to perform the service-level upgrade/downgrade.
Users who are either Org admins or Billing admins for the organization to which the Analytics account is linked can upgrade Google Analytics 4 properties to or downgrade them from the 360 service level.
Sales Partners can set the service levels of properties for their clients. Sales Partner clients and Direct clients can set the service levels of their own properties. To set the service level of a property:
- Sign in to Google Marketing Platform.
- Click Administration > Organizations.
- Click the relevant organization.
- Sales Partner: Click Clients, then click a client name. Under Linked accounts, select Analytics, then the specific account.
Client: Under Linked accounts, select Analytics, then the specific account.
- Select the check box for the Google Analytics 4 property you want to upgrade/downgrade.
- Click , then click Upgrade selected properties or Downgrade selected properties.
When you upgrade a property the service level changes to 360; when you downgrade a property, the service level changes to standard. If you have the necessary permissions to change the service level for a property but the interface controls to upgrade/downgrade are not available, then there is no order for the account, the order end date has passed, or the order start date is set to a future date.
Effects of upgrading
When you upgrade a Google Analytics 4 property to 360, the property immediately benefits from the increased limits described above. In certain cases, the upgrade may take up to four hours to apply.
Upgrading a Google Analytics 4 property to 360 will not impact billing for your Analytics account until the account has moved onto an Analytics 360 contract for Google Analytics 4 properties. In addition, SLAs will not be available to upgraded properties until the account has moved onto an Analytics 360 contract for Google Analytics 4 properties.
Effects of downgrading
When you downgrade a Google Analytics 4 property from 360 to standard, that property is immediately subject to the standard limits described above.
If the property currently exceeds those limits because of the previous upgrade to 360, then you have to bring the property within the standard limits before you can create objects or change settings that would cause the property to exceed the standard limits. For example, if you marked more than 30 events as conversions while the property was 360 and want to mark a new event as a conversion, you have to unmark events until you're below the limit of 30.
