Is your Internet plan data running out? Some measures can help lower data usage. Enable them now and start saving!
There are several measures that help reduce your smartphone’s Internet data plan usage, one of which is by enabling the data saver feature, available in most current operating systems.
With this feature enabled, most apps will not be able to use data in the background and, when possible, data usage will be reduced in the foreground as well. While this option is enabled, you’ll no longer receive notifications from messaging apps, and photos or system updates, as well as background apps, will not be backed up. In addition, applications that are in use may have reduced video, audio, and image quality.
Moreover, apps that include photos and videos, such as social networks, streaming, and browsers are often the most responsible for Internet data usage. That’s why some already offer the option to enable the data saver feature, such as uploading videos and images in high-quality only when the device is connected to Wi-Fi. Check each application’s settings.
Another tip is to adopt Lite versions of these same apps. They are often lighter and use less data.
Finally, some streaming and GPS services provide an alternative, such as pre-downloading files. In other words, you can download a video or a map while using Wi-Fi and then access them without using your 3G or 4G.
Take these measures and save your Internet data plan!
