Before implementing the SDK, make sure you have the following:
An Android app that you can use to implement the Google Analytics
A new Google Analytics app property and view (profile).
Replace tracking id in the analytics.xml in your project which is located under Assets/Plugins/Android/res/values/analytics.xml
In the Google Analytics SDK for Android v2.x and higher you can configure your EasyTracker implementation using parameters defined in your analytics.xml file. The table below lists all available parameters you can use for version 2 or higher of the Google Analytics SDK for Android. The table can be found here
