Note: For details on a specific metric, hover over the question mark icon .

Customize the KPIs on your dashboard

You can customize and pin the precise metrics that matter to you in a personalized KPIs section at the top of your dashboard. Customizing your KPIs won't change any settings for other users in your developer account.

To customize the KPIs on your dashboard:

  1. Open Play Console and select an app.
  2. On the left menu, click Dashboard.
  3. Scroll down to the “Your KPIs” section.
  4. Click Choose KPIs.
  5. Browse the “All available metrics” section to find your KPIs. You can either create your own or choose from the suggested KPIs which include:
    • User growth and loss: Unique user acquisitions, audience growth, and churn
    • Device growth and loss: Individual device installs, uninstalls, and updates; install base growth
    • Store listing performance: Visitors and conversions from your store listing
    • Engagement: Active user reports including Daily Active Users, 28-Day Active users, and returning users
    • Quality: Insights into the quality of your app, including crashes, ANRs, and ratings
    • Other dashboard cards: Cards you find in other sections of the App Dashboard
  6. Click the + Add to KPIs to pin a metric to your dashboard, and configure it to suit your needs:
    • KPI name: Enter a card name that helps you to quickly identify and contextualize the KPI (for example, “My most important devices”)
    • Dimension: Choose the dimensions you want to view by and display. You can display custom selections or totals like “Top 5,” which automatically configures the top-five from your chosen dimension.
  7. When you’ve finished adding your KPIs, you can order your selections by dragging and dropping them in the “Selected KPIs” section. You can also reorder your KPIs here in the future.
  8. Save your changes.

Tip: In addition to the metrics outlined above, you can also add any other tile on your dashboard to your KPIs. Just click the three dots at the top-right of the relevant tile, and click Add to KPIs.

Statistics page

To better understand your app's performance, you can use the Statistics page to compare metrics, select custom date ranges, and view data by dimensions. You can also compare growth rate metrics with peer groups on Google Play to understand how your app is performing.

Note: As of July 2019, we made major updates to our metrics to make your stats more comprehensive and useful. You can find out more about these updates on the Android Developers site.

Tip: The updated metrics may have affected the way you set up and understand your reports. We recommend you take the time to understand the changes so that you can configure the metrics to generate reports that are compatible with your previous data.

Set up your report

  1. Open Play Console and go to the Statistics page.
  2. To view your app's absolute performance, remain in the App statistics tab (the default tab). To view normalized metrics and benchmarks, select the Compare to Peers tab.
  3. At the top-right of your screen, select the date range you want to view.
    • ​To compare data from two date ranges, move the "Compare" switch to the right until it turns blue, and then select a second date range.
  4. In the “Configure report” section, select the metric you want to view using the blue down arrow.
    • Note: Some metrics have tertiary options. For example, you can configure User acquisitions to show new users, returning users, or all users.
  5. Define how the metric is calculated and displayed (your chosen metric will determine what options are available to you):
    • Use Event type to specify what you want to calculate: 
      • All events: Every instance of an event, such as every time your app is installed.
      • Unique: The number of unique users or devices that experience an event, such as the number of unique devices that install your app.
        • Note: Unique is only available for acquisition and churn metrics when you select weekly or longer intervals.
           
    • Use Metric calculation to specify how you’d like the data to be calculated: 
      • Per interval: The data collected in each time interval, such as the number of first-time installers each month.
      • 30-day rolling average: The average from the data collected over the preceding 30 days.
         
    • Use Time intervals to specify the intervals you’d like to aggregate data over:
      • Hourly (only available for periods of 30 days or fewer)
      • Daily
      • Calendar Weekly
      • Calendar Monthly
      • Quarterly
        • Note: Longer intervals will become available for some metrics as data becomes available over time.
  6. If you want to plot a second metric to compare to the first, click Add a metric. You can configure your second second metric as described above.
  7. Select the down arrow to choose the dimensions you want to apply, such as countries or Android versions, to display on the chart displayed below your selections.
  8. If you want to plot a subset of a dimension such as a specific version of Android or country, click Add.

Select your dimensions

After you set up your report, a table and chart are displayed that show your app's data for the time period that you select. To view detailed data by day, select a date on the chart.

Here are the dimensions available on your Statistics page:

  • Android Version: Android OS version reported from the user's device
  • Device: User's device Marketing Name and Device Name (for example, Google Nexus 7/Flo)
  • Country: User's country
  • Language: User's Android OS language setting
  • Carrier: User's wireless carrier (when applicable)
  • Channel: How users launch your instant app
    • When viewing channel data, “Try Now” refers to the button that launches your instant app from your store listing.
  • App Version: Version of your app
    • To view your app versions by distribution channels (including alpha, beta, and staged rollouts), select the channel from the top of the table.
    • There will be a label on any alpha or beta versions currently being distributed, as well as versions that weren't promoted to production. Once a version is promoted to production, the label is removed. You can still see this version in the list.

Save & view quick reports

If you set up a report with metrics and dimensions that you want to reuse later, you can save your report settings by selecting Save to quick reports under the report’s date range.

After you add a title and save your quick report, you can view your quick reports by selecting Quick reports > Saved reports near the top of the page.

Export your report

After you set up your report, you can export it as a CSV file by selecting Export report next to the title of the chart.

Evaluate your data

See how your app's growth rate compares to peers

You can use the Compare to peers tab to understand how your selected metrics are performing in relation to groups of peer apps from one period to the next. The relative performance data on this tab is normalized for scale, allowing you to judge your performance against key areas of the ecosystem, so you can tell if your app is performing well or not in comparison to your peer groups.

There are two selectors available:

  • Peer group: Use the Peer group selector to choose a set of apps to compare your app with.
  • Country: Filter your report to a specific country or region

Note: Comparisons will be available when there are enough apps with the specified peer group matching your chosen metric.

Easily see the dimensions that have impacted your data the most

The "Change analysis" chart automatically evaluates the first period of your selected time range, and the final one with full data. It highlights the dimensions that have changed most to allow you to understand the biggest contributors to your trends.

Comparison tips

Here are some ways you can use metric comparisons to analyze app performance:

  • Compare your app's total users and uninstalls over time.
  • Compare your app's crashes and daily average review score before and after a release that addressed stability.
  • Compare your apps’ daily uninstall rate to the 30-day rolling average uninstall rate to evaluate how daily variations contribute to overall trends.
See how events impact your app's metrics

You can see how changes to your app impact specific metrics using the events timeline. By combining your app's data with the dates of key events, you can quickly see things like:

  • How a sale impacts revenue
  • How the rollout of a new release impacts crashes
  • How a subscription price change impacts the number of buyers

After you've configured a report on the Statistics or Subscriptions pages, the events timeline appears under the dates on your chart. Hover over each dot to see the event description. Larger dots indicate multiple events on the same day.
