Count link previews on the Android app
Closed, DeclinedPublic


WIth the recent completion of the rollout of the page previews feature on desktop web, content consumption via the new channel is now being measured in aggregate form in the wmf.virtualpageview_hourly table (see T186728), yielding a new core readership metric that we are going to start reporting soon.
This task is about aggregating link previews on the Android Wikipedia app in the same table (wmf.virtualpageview_hourly) in the same form.

Yes - I discussed briefly with @Dbrant before filing this task, and it could turn out there's additional effort needed on the app's side, but for now it seems that the work done in the context of T110702 (probably in connection with the addition of referrer data T192779 ) could suffice.

@LGoto, data analysis tasks for the Android app are usually tagged with Product-Analytics instead.
