Datally: Google redefines Data saving with new app

Datally by Google

You will agree with me that data consumption by modern day smart devices is much.

To control this, a lot of software developers launched apps that can be used to control how data is consumed by smartphone applications and even Apple and Google added data managers to their latest OS versions.

But with the latest app from Google, it is obvious that few tweaks in the OS’ settings tab cannot efficiently manage data consumption and so, the need for special data managing apps.

Datally by Google

Datally is a new data management app developed by Google and works on all smartphones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher, and is available for download on the Google Play Store globally, from the 30th of November 30, 2017.

Datally was developed to help solve one of the biggest concerns of smartphone users around the world, and especially in countries with expensive data rates such as Nigeria, which is “worries about data usage”.

Datally launch in Lagos

Speaking at the launch of Datally in Lagos, Juliet Ehimuan-Chiazor, Google Nigeria Country Director, said that, “For the last few years, our Next Billion Users team has been doing a lot of research on the ground in fast growing Internet countries like Nigeria, We have found that data is a major constraint for the the next billion users.

“Introducing Datally into the Nigerian smartphone market will help users understand how to control their mobile data better. Google tested Datally in the Philippines for most of 2017, and the insights from the product tests there shaped the final app. The user research showed that people testing the app saved up to 30% of their mobile data, depending on the way they used Datally,” she concluded.

Why Datally?

Google’s extensive user research around the world, found that many smartphone users worry about running out of data, especially the new generation of internet users known as the ‘Next Billion Users.’ not only are they constantly thinking about data balances, but they do not understand where their data is going, nor do they feel like they can control allocating data to the apps they really care about.

Datally features

This app will empower users to manage their data more effectively on their smartphones through four key features:

  1. Data Saver: Apps frequently use data in the background for updating content and information. Datally’s Data Saverfeature lets users control data on an app-by-app basis, so that data only goes to apps they care about.
  2. Data Saver bubble: Once Data Saver is turned on, Datally’s Data Saver bubble will appear when a user goes into an app. Whenever that app uses data, the Data Saver bubble will show the current rate of data usage, and users can easily choose to block that app’s data use if things start to get out of control. The Data Saver bubble is like a speedometer for mobile data.
  3. Personalized alerts: Datally alerts users when apps start consuming a lot of data, and it allows them to see how much data they’ve used on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
  4. Wi-Fi finder: There are times when users want to use more data than they have on their mobile plans, such as when they want to watch HD videos.
    Public Wi-Fi is an important access point for high-bandwidth connectivity. Datally’s Find Wi-Fi feature reveals the networks nearby, rated by the Datally community. Once connected, users can rate the Wi-Fi networks based on their own experience.
