Google subsidiary Alphabet introduced an app on Wednesday designed to help Android smartphone users stay under the limits of pricey mobile data packages in developing countries.
Google was working on a dedicated app that could monitor and control the mobile data used by apps. Today, the company has launched the Google Datally app in the country that helps you understand which all apps are consuming data, control that usage, and in turn save mobile data. Not only that, the application also provides personalized recommendations on saving data like it notifies users about public Wi-Fi spots available nearby. So, if you’re struggling to save your phone’s data, or if your data pack is getting over a lot before the validity date, Datally is the option for you. Datally is already available for download on the Google Play store – and all Android phones running on Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher operating systems.
Datally is live on the Google Play Store and is compatible with all phones running Android 5.0 Lollipop and higher. The app is close to 5MB in size, and is free for download. As Google says, with Datally app, “Users can track their data usage in real time, and get personalized recommendations on saving data along with notifications of public Wi-Fi spots available nearby.” It is worth pointing that back in June, the app Google was working on was called Triangle app. However, today the app launched is called Datally.
Datally shows which apps on your device are eating up most of your mobile data. By providing ways to cut down the data usage, we mean — Datally will suggest nearby Wi-Fi networks for you to connect to so that you can stop using your mobile data and connect to Wi-Fi instead. The offering is the latest from Google’s Next Billion Users division, an internal effort to make internet services more accessible to people in countries where technology infrastructure is not as fast or affordable as in the United States or Western Europe. So up for some data saving?
