Well, Google has just launched a new app and it is specifically created to help Android phone users understand, control and save on their expensive mobile data. See your usage on a hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis and get personalized recommendations for how you can save more. It also provides notifications of nearby public Wi-Fi networks for you to connect to.

While Google hopes that Datally will help Android users save data when using mobile data connections, it is not a compression or proxy type of solution.

She added that Datally's Data Saver feature would turn off background data for these non-essential functions as well as let one manage data usage on an app-by-app basis. If you find yourself in this scenario, Google has your back with its new Android app named as Datally. The new service lists data consumption by the app and enables users to shut down data transmissions for that particular app.

Google has just reincarnated its previous data-monitoring app, Triangle as Datally.

Despite the advent of 4G LTE, mobile data continues to be an expensive and unreliable proposition in many parts of the world. "We've been testing Datally in the Philippines for the past few months, and people are saving up to 30 percent on their data".

It's also worth noting that numerous features Datally offers are already built into Android. Once connected, users can rate the Wi-Fi networks themselves based on their own experience. Rather than having a bunch of apps consume data in the background, you can allow only essential apps to access data while roaming.

But Google's decision to release it to all users, including those in developed countries, suggests the company believes it can help people in those markets save some cash, too.

"Through tracking and controlling app data usage, you save more data and get the most out of your phone", claims Google. Majority offer options to turn off a feature or service to lessen needed data to load.

Android users can search through settings to find data-usage information, but Datally surfaces the information and controls it in a friendlier format.
