Datally is the new data saving app for Android by Google

Google is very interested in helping you access the internet, but with limited data inclusions for mobile, sometimes that means restricting apps from getting it, so they launched Datally.

It also helps users block background data usage by certain apps that consume data without their knowledge, and also track real-time data usage while using a particular app.

Known as Triangle when it was first published back in June, Google's brilliant Android app that will help you micromanage your mobile data is now available for download globally.

The app can also track your usage on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis and give you personalised recommendations on how you can save more.

"Datally's Wi-Fi feature helps find networks nearby, rated by the Datally community".

During a trial in the Philippines, users saved up to 30 percent of their data, Google said.

Datally, the new administration, records information utilization by application and empowers clients to stop information transmissions by applications of their picking, Google gathers item administrator Josh Woodward told Reuters in a meeting.

Google will soon add two more features in the app: Balance checking and balance expiration reminders and Proactive data usage warnings and controls.

App's functions are already built into Android directly. After you open the app, the top half shows you the data usage of the day.

The app shows where and when the most data is being used and allows tracking on an app by app basis (left). And with this testing the company has found that people have achieved as much as 30% lesser data consumption. It lets you individually restrict apps from accessing your mobile data, and also activate a "Data Saver" mode which restricts a list of apps entirely. If you're in range of a public network, Datally's Wi-Fi finder will notify you and help you connect.

"In many parts of the world, people feel constrained by the cost and availability of data". The difference, though, is that this standalone app is much more direct and user friendly. Try it out and see if it helps you save on data.

Back in June, Google quietly launched an app called "Triangle", created to conserve mobile data.
