Google's new Android app can help you save mobile data

Google Slams Banhammer On Rogue Google Play Apps With Lockscreen Ads

Google Slams Banhammer On Rogue Google Play Apps With Lockscreen Ads

Google is unfolding another simple and stylish Android app that is designed for helping people in managing one of the key functions of their handset- the data usage, in this case. Google has started rolling out the app on Saturday, Nov. 30.

Datally works on Android smartphones with Lollipop (5.0) or newer versions of the Google-backed mobile operating system.

UP civic poll results: BJP sweep confined to big cities
SP leader Rajendra Chaudhary said that the BJP's claim of sweeping the urban local bodies polls was "far from true". Party MLC Rajpal Kashyap said, "It was disheartening to note that the BJP gained on places where EVMs were used".

The app helps users keep tabs on their data usage, broken down by the hour of the day, or segregated by apps.

Developers in both Google Play and non-Play app markets have to abide by these new guidelines on handling user data and disclosure.

Understand your data. See your usage on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis and get personalized recommendations for how you can save more. A Chat-head styled option bubble will also pop on your screen to let you know the amount of data you're using up. That way you can stream Netflix videos, or check your Facebook messages, without worrying about an app such as Spotify downloading tracks using your mobile data. Whether you believe it or not, based on Google's history of secretly collecting user data in the past, it's sensible to be somewhat wary of the data-saving app.

Datally also alerts users about nearby public Wi-Fi or other free Internet connection outlets, helping them save some more on their data plan. That's why the search giant built an ad-blocking feature into Chrome, and why it's banning another category of ads - lockscreen advertisements - from applications hosted on the Google Play Store. Once you're done, don't forget to rate the network quality to help other users. While Google did not specify how many downloads the game garnered, Nintendo said separately that the game has racked up over 200 million downloads across iOS and Android since launch in December 2016.
