Google launches Datally, an app that helps save up to 30% on data
"Datally shows you how much data you have used on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis and alerts you when apps consume a lot of data". Datally also allows users to cut off background data usage just for specific apps.
Datally can also recommend nearby Wi-Fi networks that have already been rated by other users.
In a blog post, Caesar Sengupta, vice president of the NBU team, said: 'Mobile data is expensive for many people around the world. It lists all the installed apps and you can control background data usage simply by tapping on the "lock" icon. The app is now available for download on Google Play, if you want to give it a shot - the big G claims you can use up to 30 percent less data than you usually do when you install it.
However, you'll have to look for Datally in the Play store, as that's what the app is now called.
He said that the number of people watching videos on the internet is growing by 66% annually while social media users are increasing by 35% per year, adding that 80% of the users surf the internet through mobile phones. If you're not familiar with Google's steadily-growing collection of utility apps-for example, the somewhat related Project Fi and Google Wifi apps-they're generally quite good and are improving all the time.
Control Data: Secondly the app helps control your data usage. There is a chat bubble as well that pops up to notify when an app connected to the internet is active and how much data it is draining. As for iPhone users, don't expect Google to release a version of this app on iOS anytime soon.
"Over time, Datally will learn your usage patterns and offer more recommendations to save data, " she said.
In addition, you get to track real-time data usage when using each of apps. A year and half ago, when data prices were exponentially higher, this app might have been useful.
