Google launches 'Datally' app for Android users to save mobile data

Google’s New Data Saving App Datally Now Available Worldwide

Google's new Datally app for Android will help you manage your mobile data

The app is called Datally, and it's supposed to help you understand where your data is going as well as suggesting ways that one can cut down on the data they're using.

If you would like to check out Datally, you can download it from the Play Store for free. Whereas, everything is placed neatly in this standalone app, Datally. Sure in India you might be enjoying Jio's 1GB per day data plan and competing mobile operators' similar offerings but chances are this honeymoon period of cheap data won't last for long and soon enough you will go back to paying regular charges. If you find an app that's gobbling up a bit too much data, you can block its data connection with a single tap. As you can see, in the above screenshot, I have used 304MB data for the day, out of which Instagram has consumed 37MB data, Facebook has consumed 17.8MB data, and so on. What's really odd is that the app needs a VPN to block data.

In addition, you get to track real-time data usage when using each of apps. I will talk a bit more about the same in a bit.

Finding quality public Wi-Fi can be a challenge. Here is the Google Play Link for Datally. It will show you your location and the place so you can navigate your way to the place where Wi-Fi network is available.

Carter said Monday on Fox Sports 1's "First Things First" that Talib needs to "check himself" or he will be out of the NFL . Maybe Oakland Raiders' wideout Michael Crabtree should stop wearing gold chains during games.

Google's really late to the party: data saving apps have been around for a while, and some are even coded into operating systems.

Apps frequently use data in the background to update content and information.

The app aims to alleviate the anxiety people face over mobile bills and data caps by shining a light on the data that software is using in real time and offering an easy way to block specific apps from consuming data. Doing it for a couple of apps is still fine, but when you have a lot of apps installed, doing it for each and every app will be a task. It also has a speed test feature, which Google might want to consider, given that much of Datally has features "inspired" by others.

Under the same Next Billion Users division, Google released another application Files Go which lets users take control of their files and keep the phone organized.

"That's why we built Datally, an app that helps you to control, save more and do more with your data", Caesar Sengupta, Vice President, Next Billion Users, Google, said in a blogpost.

On a positive note, the app is very well designed - in a way, the look at feel is reminiscent of the design of another recent app from Google: Tez.

So, it is not an extension of Data Saver for Chrome on Android for instance.
