The Google has unveiled Datally, which helps you “understand, control and save data” by showing you what apps are using the most data.
Caesar Sengupta, VP of Next Billion Users Team, wrote on the company’s blog: “That’s why we built Datally, an app that helps you understand, control and save data. With Datally, you can save more and do more with your data.
“Datally helps you do three things: Understand your data. See your usage on a hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis and get personalized recommendations for how you can save more. Control your data. Turn on the Data Saver bubble to block background data usage and track real-time data usage while using each of your apps – it’s like a speedometer for your data. You can also block data with one tap if an app’s data usage gets out of control.
“Save your data. Sometimes you just need a little more than what you’ve got on your data plan. Datally will tell you if you’re near public Wi-Fi and help you connect. Once you’re done, don’t forget to rate the network quality to help other users.”
The app has been tested by users in the Philippines and after a successful run – which saw people save up to 30 percent of their data – the company are rolling it to all Android users that have version 5.0 and above.
He added: “We’ve been testing Datally in the Philippines for the past few months, and people are saving up to 30 percent on their data. So today we’re excited to make Datally globally available on the Google Play Store for all phones running Android 5.0 and higher.”
