Google rolls out app to help people save their data

Datally by Google will help you understand where are you are spending your mobile data and how much you are using it. Datally will let you know which apps are using most of your mobile data and at what time the using it.

The Data Saver bubble blocks background data and tracks real-time data usage, whatever app you're in - it's like a speedometer for your data. While unlimited data is making a comeback in the US, there are still a lot of people on tiered data plans, and many other people around the world have even more limited data plans.

"Datally aims to help users be connected everyday by increasing transparency on how data is used, enabling more control over their data usage to get the most out of their data plan, and finding good public WiFi", he said.

Datally requires a device running Android 5.0 or higher, and is available globally.

Apps frequently use data in the background to update content and information. This again can save you precious mobile data MBs. Unlike the built-in tools and third party applications, Datally has been built to work as seamlessly as possible with your Android smartphone.

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. In addition to seeing just how much data an app is using, it can also turn data usage off for that app. The app showcases data consumption by all the apps and enables users to shut off data flow in certain apps as per your choice.

Notably, the new offering is released as part of Google's Next Billion Users Initiative, which is focused to make internet services accessible in countries that have limited mobile connectivity and technology infrastructure is not as fast as in the developed countries.

The Datally app takes about 6MB of space, so it's easy on your phone's storage.
