UA vs. GA4: Report Landscape

Just by looking at the Navigation bar, users will notice some major differences between UA and GA4:

  • In Universal Analytics, Reports are divided into 5 clearly structured sections
    • Realtime
    • Audience
    • Acquisition
    • Behavior
    • Conversions
  • In Google Analytics 4, Reports are divided into 4 subsections
    • Snapshot
    • Realtime
    • Lifecycle
    • User

What’s also new in GA4 is the further granulation of subsections Lifecycle and User. These subsections provide the user with data on engagement, monetization, audience demographics, and more.
