User Agent Client Hints – Your questions answered

User Agent Client Hints are one of the biggest changes to the device detection industry. Here’s what you need to know.

These HTTP header requests have been introduced within Chromium browsers to replace the User Agent string. While we don’t think this is a good idea, we need to upgrade our device detection capabilities to include support for this feature. This blog covers any questions you may have on User Agent Client Hints support within our device detection.

Detecting Google Pixel 2

At 51Degrees we detected User-Agents for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL over five months before the phones were publicly released, we first detected the development codename of the two devices, walleye and taimen, shortly followed by the formal moniker.

51Degrees is Google Daydream ready

Large bag of crisps at my side and headset on (‘HMD’ if you must), I nestle into the comfiest armchair in the house.  The soft padding of the headgear feels secure and reassuringly weighty as it encloses my skull, and with all peripheral vision also blocked off, I feel I have just announced “Do Not Disturb” to the rest of the household.

Upgrade Google Analytics

Enable Multi-Screen Tracking

Analytics techniques haven't kept pace with the rapidly evolving techniques of Responsive Web Design (RWD) and server side adaptive design. Google Analytics will provide information about the device model (i.e. iPhone or Galaxy S4) or whether the device is classified as a mobile, tablet or desktop, but this isn't often sufficient to make informed design decisions to improve a web page or site. Consider click through rate (CTR) on advertising. How do you know if adverts on a 3 to 4 inch diagonal screen performs better or worse than a 5 to 6 inch diagonal screen? You don't without some enhancements.
