Google Play Console

Get Store Listing Acquistions and Store Listing Vistors data from your Google Play Console

You can access Google Play Console metrics through 2 different endpoints:

Available history

We fetch historical data up to February 25th 2020.

Update frequency

Based on the email AppTweak e-mail address that you have invited on your Google account you will have different update frequencies. Go to your Google Play Console and go on the section "Users and permissions" on the left menu to find back the AppTweak email address you've invited. You can refer to the following table to find the correspondance between the update frequency and the email address:

Email addressUpdate frequency
- [email protected]
- [email protected]
1 day
- [email protected]3-4 days
- [email protected]7 days

Delay in the Data

You may notice a couple of days' delay between today and the last registered data point. Two different reasons may cause this:

  • Google has not yet provided the data for the most recent date (most common), or
  • AppTweak has not yet fetched the data.

Delay due to Google
Google never provides the data until today, there is usually a 3-day difference between the last available data in the console and today. This delay can sometimes be longer.

Delay due to AppTweak

Extra delay can be expected depending on the email used for the integration (see Update Frequency).

Moreover for Goole Play Console - Organic Search we have seen that such data changes a lot over its first days. Therefore, we have decided to wait 6 days before tracking the data, giving it sufficient time to stabilize.

Google Play Console - Store Performance

The Google Play Console - Store Performance endpoint allows you to access:

  • Store Listing Acquisitions (All users)
  • Store Listing Visitors (All users)

"All users" include new and returning users that visit your app page or installed your app. For each metric you can get the breakdown by channel of acquistion with the query parameter channel.

To get the equivalent values in your Google Play Console, go to Store performance > Store Analysis > Conversion Analysis. View by the country you want to analyse. See below for the view in your console.

2816

Store Listing Visitors and Acquisitions for Belgium in the Google Play Console. No "Traffic source" filter is applied on this view.

If you want to have the metrics with a breakdown by channel you need to add a filter by "Traffic source" in your console.

📘

Inconsistent data

Google regularly changes the data in the console retrospectively. This can lead to inconsistencies between the data we show in AppTweak and the data shown in the console for the most recent dates. The inconsistencies are updated when we next fetch the data on the console.

Input parameters

The different sources can be accessed using the query parameter channel in the Google Play Console - Store Performance endpoint. You can pass one or multiple channels in the query parameters. In the table beneath you can find the equivalence between the channel name and Google Play Console source name.
