Google New Datally App helps people Manage Data Usage on Their Smartphone

Google's mobile data-saving app has moved out of beta and renamed to Datally Google launches Datally, an app that helps save up to 30% on data

If you're someone who likes to keep an eye on exactly what's using up all of your allowance - and take control of it - Google's new Android app, Datally, can help.

While virtually all of Datally's functions are available through Android's settings menus, the app makes data management easier, particularly for less tech-savvy users.

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. (Google says it is pronounced as "day tally".) The app was tested under the name Triangle in the Philippines only for about five months and released worldwide overnight with no real warning.

Google's mobile data-saving app has moved out of beta and renamed to Datally

Data Saver bubble - Once Data Saver is turned on, the bubble will appear when a user goes into an app. And while most phones have some rudimentary tools for tracking how much internet you're downloading, Google thought it could do better, so it created Datally. The Datally app is your one stop destination to control your mobile data usage. The app install size is 4.8MB and once you install the app it asks for a number of requisite permissions. Have you used the app yet? It can block data with a single tap, as well as, tell you if a public Wi-Fi is near and open. The menu should also show data usage by application, which should provide some insight into what apps are eating more than their fair share of the data pie.

This is an especially acute problem for the newest generation to come online, known as the "Next Billion Users". Data Saver uses a VPN to block unwanted data usage (and the wizard is quite to point out that you don't need to worry about Google inspecting your data).

To all Android users, Datally might not sound like anything out of the ordinary.

Caesar Sengupta, VP of Next Billion Users, Google, in a blog said, "Mobile data is expensive for many people around the world".

Back in June, Google quietly launched an app called "Triangle", created to conserve mobile data.

As per its description page on Play store: "It's a mobile data manager that will help you monitor, save, and gain control of your data".
