Introduced last year, the Google Datally app helps mobile device owners measure and control data usage, and now it sports four new tools…
Google Datally App Updated with New Daily Limit Tools, WiFi Map, and More
Thus far, it’s mission is working well. But, Google hopes to improve on the app’s performance. The search engine states Datally users have saved up to 21 percent on mobile data. Now, it’s giving users more data-saving options.
First up is Guest Mode. And, it works pretty much how one would imagine. It allows mobile device owners to set limits before lending out their phones or tablets. Similarly, Daily Limit gives device owners the power to limit their own data consumption. Users can “…set the maximum amount of data you want to spend per day, and get warnings when you’re about to bust through your limit. You can choose to block data for the rest of the day or keep going.”
Another new tool is quite similar in function to Files Go by Google. It monitors background app usage and alerts users to said usage, queuing them to uninstall the data hogs. In fact, Google states that 20 percent of data consumption comes from background apps that haven’t been opened in a month.
Lastly, a new WiFi Map displays all nearby open connections. It even contains a rating tool so other users’ can see other people’s experiences.
The latest Google Datally additions are now available for download in the Play Store.
