Google has launched a new app created to help users monitor their data usage and control the amount that they use on a day-to-day basis.

Anyway, if you're concerned about data usage, and if you'd like to monitor which apps use the most data, Datally is worth looking at. The app is finally available now globally on the Google Play Store for all the phones running running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher.

Datally will recommend data saving methods based on individual use and features a button that stops all background data, though it's possible to choose which background applications to block on an individual basis. Google says that it has been testing the app in Philippines for a couple of months, and till now, Datally has managed to hit over 50,000 users. There is a chat-head style bubble that will pop up and will give information about how much data your now running app is using up. It can help you find good Wi-Fi hotspots nearby so that you won't have to use your mobile data at all.

In these countries, and others, making the most of the limited data is a top priority. It looks like Google had a positive response to Triangle as the search giant has made it available for everyone to download and has renamed it Datally.

He also worked at Florida previously as an assistant during the extremely successful Urban Meyer era. But Kelly chose UCLA over Florida on Saturday, and Stricklin was left to look elsewhere.

Apps frequently use data in the background for updating content and information. You can also block data with one tap if data usage gets out of control. Datally is designed with three things keeping in mind which are, understanding your data, control your data and saving of your data.

Back in June, Google quietly launched an app called "Triangle", created to conserve mobile data.

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.

Talking about the new app, Caesar Sengupta, Vice President for the Next Billion Users team, Google, in a blogpost said, "Mobile data is expensive for many people around the world".
