  • Can we connect two separate apps (under the same Firebase project) to two different GA4 Properties?

    Hey, I need some help here. I’ve created two Android apps in a single Firebase account. I wish to connect each app with a unique GA4 property. Even after a few attempts, it’s not happening. Could anyone lend a hand?

    Certainly, you can integrate each of your Android apps with a unique GA4 property within your Firebase. Here are the steps that you should follow:

    1. Log into your Firebase console, and select your project.

    2. From the project settings, navigate to the “Integrations” section and you’ll find Google Analytics.

    3. If Google Analytics is not linked, click on “Link” and then “Link to Google Analytics”.

    4. Then select “Enable Google Analytics for this project” and click on “Next”.

    5. You’ll be prompted to configure your Google Analytics account. If you have a GA4 property already, select that. If not, create a new account and GA4 property.

    Repeat the same steps for your second app too, but make sure to use or create a different GA4 property.

    Remember that your Firebase SDK version should be up-to-date for this to work, and it may take up to 24 hours for data to start appearing in Google Analytics.

    If you’ve followed all these steps and are still struggling, it’s maybe an issue for Firebase support.

    Please do overlap reporting as Firebase Analytics data is not the same as Google Analytics 4. Sometimes it’s better to look at each separately depending on the data you need.

    Seems like you hit a snag! Your apps should ideally connect with their respective GA4 properties right from the Firebase console. Just make sure you’re choosing the right GA4 property for each app. Sometimes it might take a few hours for the changes to reflect so have a little patience. Also, verify that your Firebase SDKs are properly initialized in your apps. If the problem persists, try reaching out to Firebase support.
