Through tracking and controlling app data usage, you save more data and get the most out of your phone. This smart new mobile app by Google can track data usage in real-time and gives personalized recommendations on saving data along with notifications of public Wi-Fi spots available nearby. The data management app will help users to understand their data usage on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis and get personalized recommendations for how you can save more.
