We've just started rolling out a change in Search Console's Search Analytics feature that lets you drill down to look at how your AMP pages are doing in Search. With this, you can filter for AMP results ("which queries lead to my AMP pages being shown?"), compare how their metrics stack against other search results links, or see how the visibility of your site's AMP pages has evolved over time. It's visible for all sites that show AMP pages in Search.

Find out more about Search Analytics at https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6155685.

Google Analytics users – starting today, you’ll be able to see Search Console metrics and Google Analytics metrics in the same reports

The combined reports in Google Analytics allow you to see a full view of how your site shows up and performs in organic search results. They also offer new capabilities such as these below:
• Find landing pages that are attracting many users through Google organic search (e.g., high impressions and high click through rate) but where users are not engaging with the website. In this case, you should consider improving your landing pages.

• Find landing pages that have high site engagement but are not successfully attracting users from Google organic search (e.g., have low click through rate). In this case, you might benefit from improving titles and descriptions shown in search.

• Learn which queries are ranking well for each organic landing page.

• Segment organic performance by device category (desktop, tablet, mobile) in the new Devices report.

New feature: control which messages you receive in Search Console 
We’ve added a new feature to help you tailor the type of messages you receive. It’s very simple to use:  
1) When you receive a message you’d like to disable, click “Unsubscribe from this type of message” in the footer of the email.
2) Messages you’ve disabled will be listed in your Search Console preferences page — just like on the screenshot below.  
3) You can re-enable messages from there as well. 

For more details, have a look in our Help Center: https://goo.gl/AlaLc5

A new year’s refresh of Android App-Indexing Crawl Errors data in Search Console
We’re updating and simplifying the app crawl error types we show in Search Console. You’ll now see three error types in the App Crawl Status report: Package not found (unchanged), URI unsupported (unchanged), Removed from index (new).
We’ve reset the data in the report, so you’ll see updated stats for these three error types since December 11. 

All about the new error type 
These are app pages that don’t meet our technical guidelines — for example, users get redirected to the home page or the app crashes when the user attempts to open the deep link. 
To fix this, check the example URIs both in Fetch as Google and on an actual device, and make sure your app doesn't crash on opening, the deep pages don't redirect to the homepage, and the content is equivalent. Once you fix the issues and we recrawl your app pages, these deep links from Google search to your app will be reexamined If you’ve got more questions, drop by the help forum:

We recently completed a major revision of our search quality rater guidelines to adapt to our mobile world. The rating guidelines are used to help our evaluators give us feedback on our experiments in search, not to determine individual site rankings, and they reflect what Google thinks search users want.
