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

But if you're on a capped mobile plan, where every megabyte of data counts, then you're probably looking at ways to prevent data waste. From the myriad Google services to the millions of Android phones, Google has got the the means to calculate your mobile data consumption. The application, which is now available to download via Google Play, seems to be targeted at developing countries. It works with for all Android devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop and higher, Google said. It can help you find good Wi-Fi hotspots nearby so that you won't have to use your mobile data at all. It also lets you track your data usage in real time.

The app also tells users when they're near to a public Wi-Fi spot, allowing them to logon and save on their monthly data package. Well, its got a Wi-Fi finder for areas where you might be able to find one.

Datally is a new app from Google that will track your data usage, as well as restrict apps from accessing data easily on an app by app basis. There is a chat bubble as well that pops up to notify when an app connected to the internet is active and how much data it is draining. Google says that it has been testing the app in Philippines for a couple of months, and till now, Datally has managed to hit over 50,000 users. Almost all functions provided by Datally are already available in the android settings. 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 affordable data won't last for long and soon enough you will go back to paying regular charges. There is even a feature that halts background data consumption at once, so if you know you're not going to be using your phone for a while, or just want to cut down on the background processes, you can. This it does with tracking of Wi-Fi networks and providing commentary on their quality.

Control Data: Secondly the app helps control your data usage.

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.
