Google has now rolled its sleeves up to help you save that pricey mobile data with its new app Datally. The app is available for Android devices that will allow the users to monitor their data usage and control it. This app is in line with Google’s efforts in making the internet and data services accessible for more people.
Datally provides a detailed data consumption on per app basis so the user can pinpoint the app behind those abnormally high mobile phone bills. The user will then have the option to completely turn off data for that app. This functionality is similar to the Opera Max app that was released a while ago and has already been taken down from the Google Play Store.
What’s different in Datally is that it lists all the nearby Wi-Fi networks along with the user feedback on their quality. This is another way people can save their mobile data by connecting to a Wi-Fi network nearby. Google informed that the app was being tested in the Philippines for a few months before being announced on Thursday.
The internet giant is trying hard to bring more people online by bringing the hurdles down. Google’s Next Billion User division is the company’s effort to make the data service accessible for all. A number of apps have been released in the recent past that should help in this goal, like the stripped-down version of the YouTube app that consumes less bandwidth.
In a blog post, Caesar Sengupta, Vice President, Next Billion Users, Google, said:
“Mobile data is expensive for many people around the world. And what’s worse, it’s hard to figure out where it all goes. That’s why we built Datally, an app that helps you to control, save more and do more with your data. We’ve been testing Datally in the Philippines for the past few months, and people are saving up to 30 percent on their data.”
Google Datally is available for download from the Google Play Store.
