Active device counts per domain in the Domain Data tab are now accurate for all scenarios, including corner cases. We also updated the Other category so that the data represents engagement for only that particular domain. Previously, data for the Other category also contained engagement for domains with fewer than 10 active devices. Now, that data appears in the Aggregated domain instead. For details, see the analytics dashboard.
