Google Builds Datally to Help You Save Your Mobile Data

Datally is here! Mobile data all over the world not less in Africa is outrageously expensive and to make things worse, it’s hard to figure out where it all goes. That means you’re never comfortable just chatting, playing games or watching videos on your phone— but anxiously keeping an eye on how long your data will last.

This is the reason, Internet Search giant, Google via its Official Google Africa page announced it had recently built Datally for consumers, an app that helps users understand, control and save data. With this app, we can save more and do more with our data.
According to the VP of Next Billion Users Team at Google, Caesar Sengupta, Datally helps you do three (3) things:
  • Understand your data. See your usage on an 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.

Datally – track and control mobile data from any app with the Data Saver bubble

The company had been carrying out its test of Datally in the Philippines for some months and people saved up to 30 percent on their data. So now Datally has finally gone global and available on the Google Play Store for all phones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher.

This is certainly a welcoming news for us here in Africa, so download to save more so you can do more with your mobile data!
