Google Datally App Launched, Meant To Save Mobile Data

  • Google's Datally Can Prevent Data Wastage

The app also has a toggle to help users automatically save data when they're not using WiFi. Datally is available globally for all Android devices running 5.0 Lollipop or higher.

Besides, Datally helps users to do three things.

Now You: What's your free mobile data quota?

Not only are these smartphone users constantly thinking about data balances, but they do not understand where their data is going, nor do they feel like they can control allocating data to the apps they really care about.

The app also serves as a crowd-sourced rating system for local Wi-Fi networks, which allows users to give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down to the network and view previous ratings. Datally can block app's data connection entirely with one touch.

Caesar Sengupta, Vice President for the Next Billion Users team at Google, added Datally had been in testing in the Philippines for the past few months, with users able to save up to 30% on their data.




Some Datally functionality is available within the settings pages of Android smartphones, but Woodward said he expects the specialized app will make it easier to understand the options.

With Datally, you can save more and do more with your data.

Datally, which is available exclusively on Google's Android platform, shows users' hourly, weekly and monthly data usage stats, delivering personalised information on how to cut back on costly data plans. And just above this, you get the list of apps and their data usage. This it does with tracking of Wi-Fi networks and providing commentary on their quality.

Another way you can save your mobile data is by using Wi-Fi. If enabled, Data Saver will block background data usage and monitor it in real-time at the same time.

Datally should also come in handy when traveling overseas, as it can help you save on roaming surcharges. So, the next time you open the app, all the notifications will already be sitting there, and no fresh data will be consumed.
