Google has launched a new android application to help smartphone users monitor and control the amount of data they use.
The app ‘Datally’, reveals your real-time data usage for each application and gives you an option to switch on data saver. Google has also given it the ability to find WiFi hotspots it can connect to.
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.
The company said: “During extensive user research around the world, we 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, which works on all smartphones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher, is available for download on the Google Play Store.
