Google rolls out app to help people save their data

Google rolls out app to help people save their data

Google's in-beta Files Go file-sharing and storage management Android app is also aimed at users in these markets who own devices with limited storage and spotty network coverage.

Currently, the app is available worldwide to any phone running Android 5.0 or higher. After you open the app, the top half shows you the data usage of the day.

Apart from controlling your mobile data, the Datally app also lets you save your mobile data by showing you details of public Wi-Fi hotspots you can connect to instead of using your mobile data. This is not all it also provides a directory of WIFI networks in your nearby area and enables commentary on the quality by users as well. Datally can block app's data connection entirely with one touch.

During testing of Datally, app developers inside and outside Google initially expressed concern about the effects of users limiting their services' data access, Woodward said.

The main screen displays your data usage, including the apps consuming the most amounts of data.

With Datally, you can save more and do more with your data. For post-paid users, some operators like Airtel are carrying forward unused data for customers, up to a maximum of 200 GB.

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. You can even check your data usage for this week and for the month, which will give you an estimate of how you use the data. Firstly, it acts as a data monitor letting you know your usage on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis. And this is exactly where Google aims to help with Datally app.

Apps frequently use data in the background to update content and information.

The app itself is very simple and stylish, and easy to understand as well.
