Google launches Datally mobile data saving app
Mobile data-saving apps were very popular once, and even desktop PC users had quite a few choices in this area of the market before their creators moved on to target the mobile world. Although the Android mobile operating system comes with its integrated mobile data-related settings that can help its users save data and check the amount used overall or by certain apps, Google has just released a new app that focuses on this goal alone.
According to Google's official blog The Keyword, Datally is "an app that helps you understand, control and save data" by providing the following features:
- hourly, daily, weekly and monthly data usage reports combined with personalized recommendations for increased savings
- Data Saver bubble that blocks background usage, tracks real-time network traffic and allows you to block data with a single tap
- data saving by helping you connect to public WiFi networks in your area
Google claims that the testing of this program performed in the Philippines revealed that users can save up to 30 percent on their mobile data thanks to Datally. The app requires Android 5.0 Lollipop or later, is completely free and without ads, and has been installed by more than 100,000 Google Play users already. The early user feedback is definitely positive--Google Datally has a 4.4 rating after 3,464 votes.
