DatallyIt is a fact that at some point during the day, prepaid SIM users would wonder how much data they have used so they’d check now and then.

Occasionally checking mobile data usage can be a hassle, if you ask prepaid SIM users.

Google, however, has come up with an app called Datally for Android gadgets that will help a user “understand, control and save mobile data.”

The app, according to a Mashable report, is intended for Android gadget users in India and Southeast Asia.


A Google India blog post by Caesar Sengupta, Google’s Next Billion Users Team vice president, said that for the past few months, they’ve been testing Datally in the Philippines.

And according to Sengupta, those who’ve tested Datally there were able to save “up to 30 percent” on their data.

With Datally, Sengupta said Android gadget users “can save more and do more” with their mobile data.

Datally lets a user see his or her usage on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis and receive suggestions for how to save more mobile data.

By turning on the Data Saver bubble, a mobile data user can also block background data usage and track data usage in real time even while using an app.

It’s like a speedometer for your data. You can also block data with one tap if an app’s data usage gets out of control,” the Google India post said.

Datally will also inform an Android device user if there is any public Wi-Fi service and will even help the user connect to it.

What’s Next?

Google has come up with an app that helps an Android device user control mobile data usage.

Datally can be downloaded from Google Play Store for phones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher.
