I'm new to the mix is quite common, and not having a lot of expertise is a good definition of it.

To put all the dots together is also a common term, and it means to draw a conclusion from evidence.

It all kicked in for me means to suddenly come to the correct conclusion.


I've never heard fly gods grann before


To tap in on means to decipher.

You can call it colloquial, but it is also polite English, and none of the ones I explained have a low register.

They are all idiomatic expressions, so would be less tolerated (even disapproved of by some) in formal writing.
All are commonly used in colloquial (informal, ordinary/common/familiar, conversational) speech.
