Google announces the rollout of mobile-first indexing

Google has launched a new app- Datally, which lets you monitor and save mobile data. It's available in the Google Play store for any Android phones running Android 5.0 Lollipop or newer.


Datally will show which apps are using data the most and when. While you can see your usage on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis, it’ll also recommend ways to cut down data usage based on your own activity and suggest nearby Wi-Fi networks for you to connect to. To save data, you can turn on the Data Saver feature to block background data usage and track consumption in real time.

A chat-head style bubble will also pop up to let you know how much data your currently running app is using. And if you don’t want to block every single app from using background data, Datally will let you go in and control data usage on an app by app basis, too.

Though, Datally's features are nothing new, however, putting them into one app makes it easier for people to find and use them.

Datally is being released as part of Google’s Next Billion Users initiative, which is focused on making Google products more usable in countries that have limited mobile connections and where lower-end hardware remains widespread. That’s why the initiative is focusing on basic features like storage management and data usage. That's also the reason why Datally takes up a tiny 6MB of space.
