Analytics for Google Cast Applications Launched

Today Google has announced the availability of Google Cast Applications.
 
The company announces:
 
“As a Google Cast developer, you may be wondering how many devices access your application, how many sessions those devices initiate, and how long those sessions play media. Until now, you needed to implement your own instrumentation to get this information. Not anymore! Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re making all this data available right from the Google Cast Developer Console.”
 
They also state:
 
“To check it out, log on as usual to the developer console with your developer account. In the ‘Application’ table, click on the ‘View’ link in the new ‘Statistics’ column for your application.”

The analytics page contains a tab for each metric, an interactive graph of the metric’s values over time, and tables containing the most recent day’s data. The device tab will show you the number of Cast devices which have launched your application, the sessions on the tab shows the number of Cast sessions of the application, and the average playback tab demonstrates the average length of media playback time for each session of your application.

You will be able to view each tab data in total by country or by sender platform. In order to see the data for a particular country or platform, all you need to do is click the appropriate row in the table. Each tab’s data is now available on per day basis, and also seven, fourteen, and twenty-eight day rolling totals. Hence, to change the aggregation range, you need to select the desired range from the range of the picker, which is available at the top right.
 
Google states,
 
“We hope these analytics give you insight into how your Google Cast applications are being used and enable you to see the impact of your improvements.”
