Google says that the solution makes analytics data universally accessible and useful. This is achieved through various built-in perks. The service automatically runs through your data and gives you meaningful insights and recommendations. It also offers quick tips on how to improve your Google Analytics data.

Cleaning out all the numbers that make no sense at all, the new stream of automated insights in the Google Analytics mobile app give you data in a language that you can make sense of. The service is currently available on Google’s mobile app on Android and iOS. The tech giant says that it is working to bring this functionality to the web version of Google Analytics and to expand to other languages at a later date.

As an example of how the service works, the blog post reads:
For example, the holiday season drives a huge portion of annual sales for many retailers. During this busy time of the year, retailers face questions that can be the difference between making their numbers for the year or falling short: Which products are going to be popular this season? Where should we advertise? How are our customers hearing about us and purchasing from us? Answering just one of these questions and acting on that information can take analysts and marketers hours or even days.
