Google is expanding its Android app catalog with a new app that’s all about mobile data.
Datally is the newest Android app from Google. It’s focused on helping you understand and control your data usage. With it, you can see your mobile data usage on an hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly basis and get recommendations on how you can save data.
The app also includes a Data Saver feature that can block background data usage and track real-time data usage. If you find an app that’s gobbling up a bit too much data, you can block its data connection with a single tap.
Another way you can save your mobile data is by using Wi-Fi. That’s why Datally helps you to find and connect to public Wi-Fi hotspots. Once you’ve finished using a public Wi-Fi connection, you can rate it to help others find a quality Wi-Fi hotspot.
Google is launching Datally worldwide today, making it available to all devices on Android 5.0. and up. The company says that it’s been testing Datally in the Philippines over the past few months and found that users saved up to 30 percent on their data.
Datally looks like it could be a helpful app for a lot of people. While unlimited data is making a comeback in the U.S., 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 can help those people monitor their phone’s data usage to ensure that they can stay connected to their loved ones and to the world around them.
