Digi releases mobile data management feature built right into Android

Digi mobile data users will soon be able to monitor and manage their mobile data consumption directly from within the settings menu of their Android devices.

The new feature is the result of a collaboration between Google and Digi’s parent company, Telenor Group, and will be made available to Digi customers in phases.

With the feature, Digi customers with Android devices can manage and receive alerts about their respective data plans. They can even view and purchase Digi mobile data packs on offer directly from the Android settings menu without having to install an app.

This feature can be accessed directly in the phone settings via the Mobile Data Plan function in Android and is available for Digi customers using Android 4.0 and above.

In 2016, Telenor and Google collaborated on a Mobile Data Plan API, which alerted Telenor customers in Thailand and Malaysia when they are reaching the end of their data quota while watching content in the YouTube app, and enabled them to easily buy data directly from within the app user interface. The new feature is an expansion of this effort, and now enables customers to manage price plans from their carrier directly from Android settings rather than within a specific app
