Google's new Datally app will help you save mobile data

"Once Data Saver is turned on, Datally's Data Saver bubble will appear when a user goes into an app that is allowed to use data".

In addition, you get to track real-time data usage when using each of apps.

Datally can also tell you when you're near public Wi-Fi and help you get connected.

The app was already available for testing in Philippines since last few months.

Datally will show which apps are using data the most and at what times your data is getting used up. You can find the capabilities in Android settings, but putting them into one app makes it easier for users to find and use them. Note that Xiaomi also has data management features built into their app, and have had this for years, which again allow you to track data consumption, block data for certain apps, issue a warning when data consumption has breached certain limits set by you.

HTC U11 starts getting Oreo update in the US
With Oreo on your phone, your world will be opened up to native Picture-in-Picture, notification dots, autofill, and much more. Mo also said HTC is working with Sprint to get the Oreo update out to U11 owners on that carrier " as quickly as possible ".

The app is the part of Google's Next Billion User division, an internal effort to make internet available to all countries where tech infra is poor or not affordable like American and European nations.

Datally not only shows users where all their data is going, it offers them the ability to control each app's internet access on an individual basis. The app is compatible with devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop and above. There are numerous third-party apps that let users keep an eye on their numbers, but now you won't have to look elsewhere. And to stay true to its goal, Google has also given it the ability to find WiFi hotspots you can connect to.

As per its description page on Play store: "It's a mobile data manager that will help you monitor, save, and gain control of your data".

For those who would prefer doing things the old-fashioned way or just don't want to download another app (even a compact and user-friendly one), it is still possible to view data usage information and exercise some control over mobile data.

Back in June, Google quietly launched an app called "Triangle", created to conserve mobile data.
