Simply enable and configure the plugin, and you'll start to receive key usage data of your game/application. The simple API then provides all you need to log custom events and detailed purchase transactions.

Google Analytics 4 - July 1st, 2023

Google announced that all standard Universal Analytics properties will stop processing new hits on July 1, 2023 and that only Google Analytics 4 will be available. The current state of the Measurement Protocol for GA4 doesn't allow us to provide an integration at the moment. We're in touch with Google and the Google Analytics team is aware of the current limitations.
