Google launches new data saving Android app

For many people - particularly in certain parts of the world - mobile data is an expensive commodity. However, to do this, users have to manually go into Settings Apps Select the app Data Usage and then turn off background data.

Previously, Google announced a peer-to-peer payment app aimed at Indian consumers and a low-bandwidth version of YouTube.

While this app seems like a useful tool, it is globally available for download on the Google Play Store for all phones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher. That's why we built Datally, an app that helps you to control, save more and do more with your data. Earlier the app developers were anxious about the effects of same on users but soon they accepted the same when they saw that users do initiate data consumptions for more usage. On top of that, the app can find nearby wi-fi spots along with user ratings, so people can pick the best possible connection. You can also block data with one tap if an app's data usage gets out of control.

The company ran a limited beta test of the app earlier this year and notes that users saved about 30% of mobile data on average when using the application.

Another way you can save your mobile data is by using Wi-Fi.

Now, just besides each app, you also see a "lock" icon, which basically indicates that background data usage has been blocked. Times Internet launched SmartApp in 2016, which did exactly the same thing, and had a realtime data usage counter, data consumption patterns, and a data saver. You can add apps to this list as per your preference. 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. Firstly, it acts as a data monitor letting you know your usage on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis.

On a positive note, the app is very well designed - in a way, the look at feel is reminiscent of the design of another recent app from Google: Tez.
