What is Firebase?
Firebase (formerly known as Google Analytics) is a free and unlimited service that enables you to better understand how people use your web, iOS, or Android app. The service provides application developers an API that allows application data to be synchronized across clients and stored in Firebase's cloud while separating your mobile analytics from the website.
The Firebase integration allows merchants to track app analytics such as downloads, sessions, users, etc. Add advanced e-commerce data to take your Firebase dashboard to the next level!
