Google launches Datally data saving app for Android

Google's new Datally app for Android will help you manage your mobile data

Well, Google has just launched a new app and it is specifically created to help Android phone users understand, control and save on their expensive mobile data.

The app is called Datally, and it's supposed to help you understand where your data is going as well as suggesting ways that one can cut down on the data they're using.

This is useful in cases where you need certain apps - email for example - to always use data in the background.

But they warmed to the idea as they saw that users welcomed data consumption by "apps they really like", Woodward said.

According to Josh Woodward, the product manager overseeing Datally, the idea for the app came when they saw the lengths some people went to conserve data, such as keeping their phones in airplane mode to prevent accidental use, turn it back on when they needed to check things, and then quickly turn it off.

Hearthstone's Kobolds & Catacombs Release Date Revealed
There are a total of 48 possible encounters in Dungeon Runs and three special events in the mode. The next card in Hearthstone's Kobolds and Catacombs expansion is called Elven Minstrel.

Tests of the app in the Philippines had shown that Datally could help save users up to 30 per cent on their data, Google said. The app showcases data consumption by all the apps and enables users to shut off data flow in certain apps as per your choice.

Datally is the newest Android app from Google.

The app also includes a Data Saver feature that can block background data usage and track real-time data usage. The app is compatible with devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop and above. Essentially providing easy to read and understand metrics for which apps end up draining that monthly quota.

It has a built-in Wi-Fi Finder which will help you locate nearby hotspots based on your location.

You can get Google Map directions to the Wi-Fi source and rate connections to help others make better decisions. The initiative is also focused on basic features like storage management, which is why the app just takes tiny 6MB space.
