Google’s experimental app Triangle helps you preserve mobile data

By : |June 30, 2017 0

If your apps running in the background consume too much data, you will be happy to know that Google has recently begun testing a new app, Triangle to solve this problem. The Triangle app, currently being tested in Phillippines acts as a ‘Data Saver’ by limiting certain apps from going online for more than 10 minutes or 30 minutes at a time.

This isn’t Google’s first attempt at offering better data usage controls for mobile consumers. The company, years ago added a Data Saver mode to its mobile Chrome browser. Triangle in comparison offers more fine-grained control over your applications compared to what’s provided within the Pixel. Triangle shows you which apps have been using your data and lets you block them (using a VPN).

This is already possible in many phones by changing your data usage settings, but Triangle makes it easier to do. At an individual level, Triangle users are allowed to customize how their apps use their data by choosing from options like 10 minutes, 30 minutes or Always.

Users are able to see their prepaid mobile data balance on carriers like Globe and Smart, as well as get an overview of their data hogging apps. The carriers are offering data rewards through Triangle, which lets users try and download new apps without impacting their data.

Google did not make any formal announcement about Triangle’s launch, but the app was being discussed in online forums. Triangle is currently available in Google Play Store as a free download in the Phillippines.
