You can also set daily limits.

Google's data saving Android app Datally has received an update, according to Verge. It now gives you more ways to control how you and others use data on your phone. Some new features included in the upgrade include guest mode, which controls how much data someone uses when they borrow your phone, as well daily date usage limits for yourself. Datally launched in November, with the idea of helping people in markets with limited data.


"Daily limits" is the new feature that helps you manage your data consumption. It allows you to set quotas on how much data you can use per day. If you tend to run out of data before the end of a billing cycle, this option might help conserve data so that you don't run out before the end of the cycle.


"Guest Mode" is used to conserve the amount of data used by someone who may be borrowing your phone. This might be useful for families that share one phone, or if you need to lend it to a friend. Another new feature is notifications to show how much data unused apps are draining from your phone. Even apps that you haven't opened for a month may still be costing you data.


Lastly, Datally will now provide a map of nearly Wi-Fi networks. Previously, Datally could only suggest Wi-Fi zones, but it had no way of directing you there. These features launch today, and may be useful for people who do not have unlimited plans.
