Google developing new Android app to help users save mobile data

Google is currently developing a new Android mobile application named 'Google Triangle' to help users "manage" and "block unwanted" data used by their smartphone. By keeping record on data usage, Google is trying to help users save their data by using the app.

The app is currently in a testing stage and has been made available in Philippines.

"Triangle is a new app being tried out in the Philippines that helps you better manage your data usage and block unwanted background data," Google said.

However, this is not the first time Google has attempted something like this.

A year ago, Google added a 'Data Saver' mode to its mobile chrome browser in its Pixel devices. But, according to report, Triangle provided fine-grained control over applications compared to what 'Data Saver' offered.

Google has not officially made any announcement regarding its work on 'Triangle' app, not since it was discussed in online forums last month.

It is yet not sure when the app would be launched or come to other emerging markets. "We have nothing further to announce at this time," Google told TechCrunch in a statement.
