How to Save Mobile Data Using YouTube Data Saver Feature
The YouTube Data Saver feature helps us to save data while streaming large videos with limited data
YouTube, the video streaming service giant has released a feature to save data while using the app on both Android and IOS devices. Earlier, users were able to adjust the streaming resolution of their choice in a video or they used the Auto mode which would adjust the video quality automatically according to the strength of the network. When this feature named “Data Saver” is selected, every video you watch will consume the least amount of data. Although you might have to convince yourself to watch videos of their lowest quality, this feature will be very effective when you have limited data on your device.
Before you get to know how to enable this feature, update your app if you are still using the earlier versions of YouTube.
