Hi @Jackspwter

 

try this for more clarification:

https://www.e-nor.com/blog/google-analytics/google-analytics-new-labels-mystery-of-the-returning-vis...

 

In essence Users is a metric which says how many unique cookies were active inside a selected time frame.

 

New users is a metric which says how many users had the 1st session inside the selected time frame (by 1st session - means historically the user did not visit the site before).

 

Hope it helps!

 

Kind regards,

Zorin
