I'm curious about a specific report request in Google Analytics. Is it possible to segment/extract users that are purely mobile/tablet users and have never initiated a session from a desktop?

Maybe you can shed some light here.
Thank you very much.

Hi Andi,


Unless you have a user id view, each device is at least 1 unique user.  That is, you can't track users cross device by default; therefore, you wont be able to segment in this way.


You can however, use the built in segments for mobile or tablet users to view and compare their behavior.
