New Google App Could Help You Save Data

New Google App Could Help You Save Data

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

The Datally app takes about 6MB of space, so it's easy on your phone's storage. On a Reddit post about the new policy (with over 1,400 comments), users noted that even smartphone manufacturers like Samsung have pre-installed apps that exhibited the behavior. These include usage access and access to your dialer/phone.

Google tested Datally earlier this year in the Philippines with a half-million users, finding they cut mobile data use by about 30 percent, according to Woodward. If you don't want to, there' a "No Thanks" button as well.

Google's Datally application got you covered.

Datally shows you how much data you've used on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis and alerts you when apps consume a lot of data. Apart from that, you can also see other apps that are using data as well. You will be prompted to enable connection request by blocking data using VPN.

Datally is a data saver app for Android. After you open the app, the top half shows you the data usage of the day.

This was a feature that we found intriguing.

You have probably encountered them. Datally also prompts you to rate Wi-Fi networks.

Well, of course it does and it does so quite well. But while this is something that will please Android users, it's not something that the company has really trumpeted. Datally presents such features in a neat user interface. That is indeed the question. This way, you can connect to these hotspots and save a significant amount of mobile data.

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. We've seen examples of this in terms of the Android One project as well.
