After you create your Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics accounts, you must set up two containers (one for Android and another for iOS) in Google Tag Manager.

This allows you to create two Google Tag Manager ids and use them individually to set up and monitor traffic on each platform (Android and iOS).

To create a Google Tag Manager id for Android

  1. Navigate to Google Tag Manager.
  2. Log in with your credentials.
    The Accounts page appears.
    Note: A Google Tag Manager account can have multiple containers.
  3. On the Account main page, click the vertical ellipses on the right-hand corner.

The Accounts context menu appears.

4. From the context menu, select Create Container.
The Create Container page appears.

5. Enter the following information:

  • Click Create.
    The container along with the GTM id is created and the container page appears.
  • Share the GTM Id generated for the Android container with your CSMs.

6. Click Create.
The container along with the GTM id is created and the container page appears.

7. Share the GTM Id generated for the Android container with your CSMs.

Note: For the Google Tag Manager to work, your app needs to be published on the Play Store with the new GTM id and container info. If your app exists, then re-published it with this info.
