Google launches Datally, an app to control mobile internet usage

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

Google on Thursday launched an app created to help Android phone users understand, control and save on their expensive mobile data. The app was launched in beta form in limited markets, which included the Philippines where the company found out that it helped users save nearly 30 percent off their mobile data usage.

Now, users everywhere running Android 5.0 or greater can download it via the Google Play Store to help them save on their data usage.

Google is expanding its Android app catalog with a new app that's all about mobile data. It initially trailed Datally in the Philippines, where it said users saved as much as 30% of their data after installing the app.

Besides, Datally helps users to do three things. Over time, Datally will learn your usage patterns and offer more recommendations to save data.

It solves one of the biggest headaches for smartphone users around the world - data usage. It lists nearby networks, and after using it, you can rate it to help others find a quality Wi-Fi hotspot. You can even get directions on how to get there.

Say, your friend comments on your Facebook post, or likes your Instagram photo, you will instantly get a notification for the same.

Control Data: Secondly the app helps control your data usage. Almost all functions provided by Datally are already available in the android settings.

Datally is a great app for those of us who are confused or simply don't know about data management. However, we have the next billion users that are upgrading from feature phones to smartphones, and for them, these advanced controls are alien territory.

If you're using Android for a long time, then datally Might not seem very new app to you. That's why Datally helps you to find and connect to public Wi-Fi hotspots. Initially, after installing, I was wondering why I would want a separate app to restrict background data, but looking at how easy it is, it now makes a lot of sense.
