Google introduces data-saving app ‘datally’

Google introduces data-saving app ‘datally’

Technology giant Google has introduced a smart and simple data-saving app, ‘datally’, that will enable android-based smartphone users to understand, control and save mobile data. Google announced the arrival of the app in Bangladesh and two other countries at a press conference in a city hotel yesterday.

“The next lot of our billions of users will come from Bangladesh and a few other countries. That's why we're focusing on them,” said Golam Kibria, the industry head for APAC at Google, at the launching ceremony.

The newly developed app works on all smartphones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher versions; it is now available on Google Play Store.

Describing the activities of the app, Hashmi Rafsanjani, marketing consultant for APAC at Google, said datally will help resolve one of the biggest concerns of smartphone users around the world, namely worries about data usage. “This app empowers smartphone users to resolve problems with four key features,” he added.

Apps frequently use data in the background for updating content and information. But datally’s data-saver feature lets the user control data on an app-by-app basis so that data only goes to apps they care about. People testing the app have been able to save up to 30 per cent of their mobile data, depending on the way they used the datally.

Once the data-saver app is turned on, a data-saver bubble will appear when a user goes into an app that is allowed to use data. Whenever that app uses data, the bubble will show the current rate of data usage; it helps the user to easily 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. Personalised alerts will alert users when apps start consuming a lot of data. It will also allow them to see how much data they are using on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.
