Google’s new Datally app helps you save data

Google has launched a new app designed to help users monitor their data usage and control the amount that they use on a day–to–day basis.

Datally, which is available exclusively on Google’s Android platform, shows users’ hourly, weekly and monthly data usage stats and delivers personalised tips about how to get the most out of costly data plans.

A special ‘Data Saver’ bubble lets you block background data and see data usage in real time, with the ability to stop data being used by any given app with a single tap.

The app also tells users when they’re near to a public Wi-Fi spot, allowing them to log on and save their mobile data.

Google says it’s released the app because data is still extremely costly in many countries around the world.

Download Datally from the Google Play Store.

It initially trailed Datally in the Philippines,where it said users saved as much as 30% of their data after installing the app.

Datally is now worldwide on devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop and higher.
