Google has launched a beta service called Account Activity which will act like a personal Analytics tool for people using Google products such as Google Search, Gmail, Google Play and so on. Think about it as Google Analytics that is already available for those who manage websites but now for your entire Google experience.

Through this new tool, users can keep a tab on their search habits and find out what percentage of searches are for web links, images and videos. With the Google Latitude tool one can decipher how much time one spends at home or at work or other places. For Gmail one can get cool facts like who is the most frequently contacted contact and how many mails have come and gone.

On the whole these features are geared toward geeky power users rather than mainstream users as most will never gain any substantial benefit from the service. This service is not only restricted to Gmail accounts as Google Apps users will also have access to it. Going beyond the novelty of analyzing ones own usage with Google tools, the service also helps users to track from where their Google accounts were logged in from, so if an anomalous login pops up it will be shown in Account Activity.
