Play Console KPI customization

Google Play Console metrics can help you understand your app’s performance across growth and acquisition, engagement and monetization, quality, and churn.

You can now customize and pin the precise metrics that matter to you in a personalized KPIs section at the top of your app dashboard.

On the dashboard for any app, scroll down to the KPI section and select “choose KPIs.” You can either build your own or start with suggested KPIs for job specialities, such as Growth, Quality and Health, or Monetization.There’s an extensive list of available metrics, including our new engagement data and peer comparisons. Search filters make it easy to find just what you want, and once selected you can edit the dimensions and filters to suit your needs. Once you’ve configured a list of KPIs that suit you, you can order them to control where they appear.

You can include up to 20 KPIs, so your dashboard can be as robust or as streamlined as you want.

There are as many ways to customize your KPIs as there are people using the console. Instead of seeing default KPIs, now everyone can have a customized dashboard showing exactly the metrics that matter to their individual workflows.

Want to see for yourself? Then log into Google Play Console to try it out.
