Google released a new version of the company's data compression app Datally for Android yesterday; the update introduces new features and improves others.
The company launched the Datally application for Android in late 2017. We reviewed the first release version of Datally back in 2017 to give Android users better control over the device's data usage.
The initial version of Datally monitored the data usage on the Android device, offered tips to reduce data usage, and suggested public wireless networks that it picked up to save mobile data.
Datally helped save 21% of data on average according to Google. The new version of the application comes with four new or improved features.
Datally users may certainly appreciate the new functionality as it adds new options to limit data usage and remove apps that use data even though they may not be used anymore or very infrequently.
Datally requires lots of permissions. While some can be associated with the functionality clearly, while others, like the ability to read SMS, read phone status & identity, or call phone numbers directly, can't.
The new version of Datally is already available on Google Play. Existing users should receive the update through Android's automatic updating system.
