Last October, Google announced the limited beta of Universal Analytics, an effort to bring new features like cross-platform and mobile app analytics, as well as the ability to incorporate data from offline sources, to Google Analytics.

Businesses will also have to set up a new web property in their Analytics accounts to get started with using Universal Analytics.
