Tech giant, Google has introduced a new app: Datally.
Datally is a mobile data-saving app that helps one to understand, control and save data. It also helps discover great nearby Wi-Fi networks.
Google Nigeria Country Manager, Mrs Juliet Ehimuan-Chiazor in a chat with newsmen in Lagos, said that with Datally, one could save and do more with data.
According to Juliet, the app is a technology built to tackle some of the challenges being faced by internet users in most of the emerging market countries such as Nigeria.
According to her, “Some of the characteristics of the emerging market are their aspirations for better life, appetite to lift family out of poverty, and highly mobile among others.
“They face some challenges such as; huge percentage of people who use low-end phones, connectivity and localised content which forces them to either use airplane mode, rationing, or tethering to save data.
“Datally, the new data management app will help them understand how data is being used on the phone and help to control and save it,’’ she said.
With Datally, understanding data usage doesn’t have to be confusing any longer, it will not be hard to control anymore either, and will eventually make it less expensive.
Datally can be described as a mobile data manager that will help you monitor, save, and gain control of your data. Through tracking and controlling app data usage, you save more data and get the most out of your phone which will eventually lead to reduced spending on data.
