Google Analytics 4

The Google Global Site Tag Integration push events data to Google Analytics, and to Google Ads if you have enabled Gtag in your Google Ads account. Follow this guide to connect your Google Ads account with Google Analytics: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1033961?hl=en
The GTAG integration works with GA4 (Google Analytics 4) out of the box, and with UA as long as the corresponding events are defined in your Universal Analytics setup. The integration activates the site tag client side, which means it sends the events to google analytics directly from the browser. Much like setting up a Google Analytics tracker yourself, but with predefined events mainly for e-commerce.
