What’s New in Firebase? Updates From the Firebase Dev Summit

Firebase’s goal is to help developers build better apps and grow them into successful businesses. By taking care of your app back-end or infrastructure, Firebase lets you focus on solving problems for your users. The new features announced at the Firebase Dev Summit this November were centered around Crash Reporting, Analytics, and support for game developers. In this article, I will give you a breakdown of what was announced and how to get started with these tools.

Firebase Crash Reporting

Since it was released at Google I/O, this has been a beta product. But Firebase Crash Reporting is now out of beta! These are the new updates that come with the full release of Firebase Crash Reporting.

  • Improved user workflow: You can now mark errors as fixed and track which ones were fixed by you.
  • Email alerts: You can now get an email notification whenever a new crash happens. You can get notification of new issues or issues that have resurfaced after having been fixed.
  • Instant reporting: Previously, any time a crash happened on your user’s device, it would take about 20 minutes to show on the dashboard. But now you can get the report instantly.
  • Detailed insight with Analytics: Instead of just showing the errors, you can now see the context in which it happened. For example, if you have an app where an error occurred when your user was creating his/her profile, you can use Firebase Analytics to gain insight into what led to this crash.
