    Now, we can see the data usage for our WiFi, displayed in a table with the dates, "15 MAY", "29 MAY", "12 JUN".
    We have the amount of data that is being used, and below that it says, "15 MAY - 12 JUN: about 2.69 GB used Measured by your phone. Your data usage accounting may differ".

    It's very useful also to be able to see which apps are using the most WiFi data.

    The "Android OS" is using the most, "1.30 GB".
    "Google Play Store" also uses quite a bit. It's very interesting because we haven't even really used "Google Play Store". We haven't downloaded any applications, but we can see that it's still using quite a lot of WiFi data. That means that if we have a certain limit, and we only have a certain amount of data that we can use, we may want to turn some of these applications off at some time if we're not using them. If we're not using Google Play Store, then we don't need it to be taking up so much room. This is very useful for us to see what exactly is using WiFi data.
