Looker Studio vs. Metabase comparison

Both Looker Studio and Metabase are powerful tools that help in data analysis and visualization. Yes, they are similar in a number of ways, but they also have varying characteristics that set them apart. Check out the differences below:

  • Pricing model: Businesses can self-host Metabase for free since it’s open source, though users have to pay something to access premium features and support. Setting up and creating reports with Looker is free, but only if you utilize data from Google products and other specified platforms.
  • Advanced analytics: With Looker, users can access advanced analytical capabilities and even create intricate calculations and custom metrics. Data exploration is made possible by its data modeling capabilities. Although Metabase provides the basics as far as analytics functionality is concerned, the feature doesn’t come close to Looker’s advanced analytical prowess.
  • Ease of use: Looker’s interface is intuitive and highly customizable. On the other hand, the user interface on Metabase is rather simpler, making it a preferable option for non-technical users. However, its customization and advanced features cannot match Looker Studio’s.
