Google Datally app: Know how to stay under limits of pricey mobile data packages

New Delhi: Google has introduced an app to help Android smartphone users stay under the limits of pricey mobile data packages.

This app, called Datally, allows users to track their data usage in real time, and get personalised recommendations on saving data along with notifications of public Wi-Fi spots available nearby.

The app is now globally available on the Google Play Store for all phones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher.

Datally is an initiative of Google`s Next Billion Users division that aims to make Internet services more accessible even in countries with limited technology infrastructure.

Datally helps you to control, save more and do more with your data, Caesar Sengupta, Vice President, Next Billion Users, Google, said in a blogpost.

Sengupta has also elaborately explained how Datally helps you save on data.

Understand your data: See your usage on a hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis and get personalized recommendations for how you can save more.

Control your data: Turn on the Data Saver bubble to block background data usage and track real-time data usage while using each of your apps—it’s like a speedometer for your data. You can also block data with one tap if an app’s data usage gets out of control.

Save your data: Sometimes you just need a little more than what you’ve got on your data plan. Datally will tell you if you’re near public Wi-Fi and help you connect. Once you’re done, don’t forget to rate the network quality to help other users.
