✨ Features

The Google Analytics Measurement Protocol for Google Analytics 4 allows developers to make HTTP requests to send events directly to Google Analytics servers. This allows developers to measure how users interact with their business from any HTTP-enabled environment. Notably, this makes it easy to measure interactions that happen server-to-server.
