Quality is foundational to your game or app’s success on Google Play, and Android vitals in Google Play Console is a great way to track how your app is performing. In fact, over 80% of the top one thousand developers check Android vitals at least once a month to monitor and troubleshoot their technical quality, and many visit daily
While the Android vitals overview in Play Console lets you check your app or game’s quality at a glance, many developers have told Google that they want to work with their vitals data outside Play Console, too. Some of use cases include:
- Build internal dashboards
- Join with other datasets for deeper analysis, and
- Automate troubleshooting and releases
Starting today, these use cases are now possible with the new Play Developer Reporting API.
The Play Developer Reporting API allows developers to work with app-level data from their developer accounts outside Play Console. In this initial launch, you get access to the four core Android vitals stability and battery metrics: crash rate, ANR rate, excessive wake-up rate, and stuck background wake-lock rate, along with crash and ANR issues and stack traces. You can also view anomalies, breakdowns (including new country filters in Vitals), and three years of metric history.
Getting started with the API
To enable the API, you must be an owner of your developer account in Play Console. Then you can set up access in minutes from the API Access page in Play Console. Documentation covers everything you need to know to get started.
