Google launches app to reduce high mobile data usage
Posted on: December 09, 2017, 09:12:31 PM


Google has launched a new app known as Datally to help smartphone users understand, control and save mobile data.

The technology giant noted that many smartphone users worry about running out of data, especially the new generation of internet users known as the ‘Next Billion Users.’

Speaking during the launch of the app in Lagos, Google Nigeria, Country Director, Juliet Ehimuan-Chiazor, explained that Fatally will empower smartphone users to manage their data more effectively through four key features: Data saver, Data saver bubble, Personalized alerts and Wi-Fi finder.

She said: “In the last few years, our Next Billion Users team has been doing a lot of research on the ground in fast-growing Internet countries like Nigeria; we found that data is a major constraint for the next billion users.

Introducing Data into the Nigerian smartphone market will help users understand how to control their mobile data better.

“Google tested Datally in the Philippines for most of 2017, and the insights from the product tests there shaped the final app. The user research showed that people testing the app saved up to 30% of their mobile data, depending on the way they used Datally.”
