As you can see for yourself in the above screenshot taken from an early preview build of Windows 10, the DataSense feature shows the overall Internet data usage broken down in Wi-Fi and Cellular. The usage section will display the usage of data by individual apps and services, which is really nice and gives you a quick breakdown of the ‘culprits’ that are eating your data.

By going to settings, you can choose to restrict or not background data, to restrict background data when roaming and to choose whether you want total data usage to be displayed for your device or not. These features, obviously, will be available for Windows tablets and other WiFi + Cellular available devices.

It’s cool to see Microsoft bring traditional Windows Phone features to the unified version of Windows 10 and this will definitely help drive the market adoption even further.
