Google has announced the launch of a new app to help users understand, control, and save on their mobile data. Datally tracks data usage in real time and gives personalized recommendations on saving data along with notifications of public Wi-Fi spots available nearby
Google had been testing Datally in the Philippines since this summer. The company says it’s already hit over 500,000 users and that it’s been able to save people, on average, 30 percent of their data. As of today, the app is being released to the rest of the world and is available to any phone running Android 5.0 or higher.
With Datally, users can efficiently monitor and control their allocated data. Users can find out how much mobile data they are using on an hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Based on it, the app will give you recommendations on how you can save more data.
Datally also features a data saver function which blocks background data and gives users real-time data usage while using each of their apps. If you find out any app which is eating a lot of your data, you can easily block it with a single tap.
The app also helps users find out nearby user-rated public Wi-Fi networks. It lists nearby networks, and after using it, you can rate it to help others find a quality Wi-Fi hotspot.
