Google launches mobile app Datally to help users limit mobile data usage

Google launches a mobile data tracking app to help avoid data wastage

Google released a new app this week called Datally, which is created to help Android users track, manage and save on the amount of mobile data that their smartphone or tablet uses.

Additionally, there is a "Find Wi-Fi" button in Datally that lists all nearby hotspots being provided by restaurants and other businesses.

You can download Datally from Google Play free of charge. Whereas, everything is placed neatly in this standalone app, Datally. You won't get push notifications nor will the apps refresh content in the background.

When you click on Manage Data, you get a graph of your data usage pattern throughout the day, in a graphical form.

Woodward said, "The visibility gives users more confidence to use those apps".

However, many have found her cause to be ironic given that her husband is known to bully everyone on Twitter. Ms Trump has had a fraught relationship with her husband's first wife Ivana Trump .

With all the streaming, Instagramming, and everything else people are doing on their phones, your monthly allotment of data just doesn't last as long as it used to, especially if you're on one of those family plans with a shared data pool. Its basic function is to aid people in managing the data usage on their smartphones. The menu should show data usage over the past month. I will talk a bit more about the same in a bit. I never leave my house, so I've not tested that yet, but Google says that this feature includes a nice community element where users can rate Wi-Fi quality and make the service even more useful going forward. It will show you your location and the place so you can navigate your way to the place where Wi-Fi network is available. You can track in real time the data consumption of each and every internet connected app on your Android smartphone.

Datally offers the option to send Google both your app's usage data and the SMS activity between you and your mobile operator so that the company can "improve" the app.

Open the Settings app and go to the "Wireless & Networks" menu, then select "Data Usage".

The Google Country Manager, Mrs Juliet Ehimuan-Chiazor in a media briefing in Lagos, said that with Datally, one could save and do more with data. From there, you can decide on an app-by-app basis how much data they should consume. The difference, though, is that this standalone app is much more direct and user friendly. The app also tracks real-time usage of each app that's now in use, which Google likens to a "speedometer" for your data. And because the app is straightforward, it is easy for everyone to understand.

So, it is not an extension of Data Saver for Chrome on Android for instance.
