Google rolls out app to help people save their data

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

Pic: ReutersSAN FRANCISCO: Alphabet Inc's Google introduced an app on Wednesday created to help Android smartphone users stay under the limits of pricey mobile data packages in developing countries.

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. It also provides notifications of nearby public Wi-Fi networks for you to connect to.

The app is now globally available on the Google Play Store for all phones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher, Google said. I downloaded the app to give it a try and here are my first impressions. Datally only works when it has permission to users' SMS and phone apps, as well as their location.

While using your mobile data you always tend to be thrifty because mobile data comes at a premium. Once we started fiddling with the app we were able to find that it not only has mobile data usage statistics of the day it was installed on but also data statistics of the past.

Datally is obviously a major play at capturing those next billion users that many global internet giants are after. Over time, Datally will learn your usage patterns and offer more recommendations to save data.

Padmavati Panel: Sanjay Leela Bhansali to discuss the movie
While Supreme Court has distanced itself asking CBFC to follow the guidelines, looks like the government can't ignore it anymore. The makers of the movie have submitted the three application which includes the latest 3D one, to the Censor Board.

By turning on the "Data Saver" bubble, the app blocks background data usage and tracks real-time data usage while using each of your apps. I will talk a bit more about the same in a bit.

Finding quality public Wi-Fi can be a challenge. Say, for instance, you are looking for a café or so to access Wi-Fi, those places will be listed here.

Datally lets you easily track your data to understand which apps are wasting the most data. It will show you your location and the place so you can navigate your way to the place where Wi-Fi network is available.

If you're using Android for a long time, then datally Might not seem very new app to you.
