Today we tell you how you can save data on your Android mobile and all the techniques available to spend less megabytes. These are some small adjustments that are available in the configuration of your cell phone, and that will be very useful when it comes to reducing your consumption.

1. Set a limit

It is a very useful function not to save data per se, but to prevent it from exceeding a certain limit. When Android has counted that you have exceeded this limit, it stops using data, which can save you a surprise on the bill.

2. Downloads and streaming, only with Wi-Fi

Downloads of any kind and streaming apps consume the most data on your mobile, so you should use them only when connected to a Wi-Fi network and not with your precious data.

Some apps like Netflix or Google Play Music allow you to turn on Wi-Fi only mode.

3. Disable automatic download

Sometimes the problem is in the files that other people send you (for example, in WhatsApp, Telgram or Messenger chats: photos, videos, audios). It is important that you control whether you want this multimedia content to download automatically when you have a data connection or not.

4. Uninstall apps you don’t use

Even if you don’t use some apps, they can connect to the Internet and download content in the background. Deleting them is the best option, not only will you be able to reduce your data usage, but you will also free up space and probably save some battery life in the process.

5. Activate data saver

Android includes its own data saver mode, which reduces and limits Android data usage by preventing background apps from using your data. You can easily activate it from the Android settings, in the Data usage-Data saving section.
