How Google Tag Manager works

Installing Google Tag Manager (GTM) on your websites starts with the snippet. The Google Tag Manager container snippet is a small piece of JavaScript and non-JavaScript code that you paste into your pages. It enables Tag Manager to fire tags by inserting gtm.js into the page (or through the use of an iframe when JavaScript isn't available).

To use GTM with your mobile apps, you’ll need to install the Firebase SDK as a pre-requisite for both Android and iOS apps.

Both of the installation options apply to routine use cases, but if you’d like to have finer grain control over tag events or data, you’ll need to add a special data layer variable called an event that is used within JavaScript event listeners to initiate tag firing when a user interacts with website elements such as a button. This functionality is accomplished by calling the push API as a method of the data layer on your page.
