Google is working on a new application, which is currently named as Google triangle. The app will allow you to keep a track on your data usage. Currently, it is in a beta stage and is being tested in the Philippines. The main feature of the new Triangle app is the ability to block individual apps from using your mobile data. The app is basically targeted to users who have a limited data plan and need to be aware of how much they have spent. Besides the app will also allow users to significantly control their data.
Google said, ” Triangle is a new app being tried out in the Philippines that helps you better manage your data usage and block unwanted background data”. The new upcoming Triangle app can give you a better control over your data and users can have a look at the apps consuming more data. You can also allow specific apps to use data for 10 or 30 minutes at a time, or always.
Google Triangle is not the first step towards saving data, by Google. The company also recently launched the YouTube GO app which gives users the ability to save data and perform better than the existing YouTube app on lower data speeds. Google also introduced Android GO during the Google I/O in May this, which comes with Lite apps installed, which consumes lesser data and power. They also introduced Data Saver mode on its Google Chrome browser which also allows in saving data while browsing.
