Google Launched Datally App: Designed For Mobile Data Saving
Google launched Datally App designed on Wednesday to help Android smartphones to stay in expensive postal data packages in developing countries. It is now available for download with Google Play.
Datally, a new service, lists the usage of data from the application and allows users to close data deliveries by selected applications, said Josh Woodward, a product manager for Google Group at Reuters in an interview. It also provides a directory of future Wi-Fi networks that contain users’ feedback on their quality.
The offer is the latest in-house effort by millions of users to make Internet services accessible to people in countries where the technology is not as fast and accessible as in the US or Western Europe.
Previously, Google announced an interim request for Indian consumers and a low-width YouTube version.
Some Data features are available in Android’s web settings, but Woodward said they were expecting a special application to facilitate understanding of the options.
But they have noticed that users use data “for applications they really want,” said Woodward. “Curiosity gives more users to these applications.”
Referring to the new application, Caesar Sengupta, vice president of Google Next Blog, said: “Mobile data is expensive for many people around the world, and even worse, they create a Data application that helps to control, in addition to more and more issues. Test in the Philippines in recent months, and people save up to 30% of their data.
