Datally, Google's mobile data control application on Android, launched a new feature that allows you to save part of the internet package for emergencies. The Urgent Data feature allows you to define a certain number of megabytes that must be stored in a reserve stock for use only when necessary. When the option is enabled, the app blocks the use of 3G or 4G ahead of time, leaving the rest of the data to call an Uber ride or use WhatsApp until the end of the month, for example.
Below, the procedure reproduced on a Galaxy S8 with Android 8 Oreo shows how to use the novelty on the phone.

Step 5. As the data pack nears its end, Datally issues a notification to remind you that you still have an extra amount saved. When the gigabytes out of reserve end, the app will block the 3G or 4G network on the cell phone unless the user activates the Emergency Data. When this occurs, tap on the notification to open Datally.
