Google launched its new data saving app Datally: mobile data-saving & WiFi app for the Android operating system today. The app also recommends various ways to cut down usage of data based on the activities suggesting nearby public access of Wi-Fi networks for them to connect to. It also offers a directory of nearby Wi-Fi networks, which includes user commentary on their quality.
To help mobile consumers know how they use their data, Google has introduced Datally.
Data Saver bubble - Once Data Saver is turned on, the bubble will appear when a user goes into an app.
Google also said it had been testing the app in the Philippines, where users said that they were saving up to 30 percent on their data.

Speaking during a media briefing in Lagos yesterday, Juliet Ehimuan-Chiazor, Google Nigeria Country Director said, "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".
She said that one could also block data with one tap if data usage gets out of control.
According to Reuters, Datally was created by Google's Next Billion Users, a division that focuses on making the internet more accessible in developing nations. 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.
Even when Datally isn't front and center on screen, it can provide valuable information about data usage. YouTube Go is a data conserving app of YouTube that allows downloading videos for offline use. But, they appreciated the idea as they noticed users allowing data consumption by "apps they really like".
