Yesterday during the Google Analytics User Conference in San Francisco, attendees got a preview of the new version of Google Analytics. This new, upcoming version – Google Analytics Version 5 is designed to make it easier and faster for users to access the data they want. Many of the improvements done to the new version were a result of user feedback like – users will be able to view multiple advanced segments without having to use “All Visits” and other requested features like multiple dashboards.
New Features for Google Analytics Version 5:
- New Home Section
- New Dashboard
- Updated Custom Reporting Tool
- New Admin Section
- World Cloud Visualization
- Goals as Events
Here’s a video by one of the beta testers who had early access to Google Analytics V5.
For now, only a small group of Analytics users participating in the private testing have access to Google Analytics V5. This new version will eventually be gradually rolled out to everyone in the coming months.
If you want to join the beta testing program, you can visit the beta sign-up page. If you’re already part of the program, you can go to the new version by clicking on the link on your Google Analytics account. Using the new version of Google Analytics won’t affect your website traffic reports and you can use the current version while testing out the new version.
What do you think of the new, upcoming Google Analytics Version 5? Anyone here who’s tried it already? How do you like the new features? Please share your thoughts.
