In July 2023, Google Analytics 4 will be replacing Universal Analytics. On July 1, 2023, standard Universal Analytics properties will stop processing new hits. If you still rely on Universal Analytics, we recommend that you prepare to use Google Analytics 4 going forward.

Analytics creates a single user journey from all the data that is associated with the same User-ID. Unlike Universal Analytics, a Google Analytics 4 property incorporates User-ID natively across all reporting, analysis, and insights, and doesn't require a separate User-ID reporting view. You can read more here.

There are several ways how you can get started with Google Analytics 4. One option is to create a new property (it will automatically be GA4). The other option is to use the GA4 Setup Assistant. Please note, assistance for the the setup and install of Google Analytics 4 are outside the scope of this guide, but a Google search or the links above will bring up many tutorials and training videos.
