Data saving feature a Win-Win for both Instafam and Instagram! 400 400 admin

Instagram has a little-known feature to help users who are on the move use the app with more confidence and avoid major data usage. This feature is currently available for Android users. It helps users view the content of their choice with a considerable reduction in image loading time and in the overall data that Instagram consumes on their mobile network.

The users will have 3 viewing options for high resolutions media and pre-loading videos. They just have to go to Settings->Account->Cellular Data use and then they will be able to switch this setting ON. This setting prevents Instagram from preloading the video in high resolution. The 3 viewing options are – Never, Wi-Fi only and Cellular+Wi-Fi.

This new feature will help people experience Instagram browsing more effortlessly in slow internet areas with less data consumption. And this is in line with other strategic efforts from the Facebook stable to provide apps that consume less data whilst on the move – such as FB Lite.
