Finally, Instagram releases data quota save mode


IllustrationIllustration - Along with technological sophistication, Instagram finally launched a new feature, namely data saver mode for Android-based devices. Instagram specifically launches data saver mode for developing countries with limited internet access and speed, including Indonesia.

Through this mode, users are claimed to be able to explore and share moments on Instagram without having to spend too much their internet quota.

Based on Ookla's Global Speedtest Index (April, 2019), Indonesia ranks 123 out of 138 in the survey of countries with an average cellular internet connection speed of around 10.44 Mbps. While the average cellular internet speed in the world has reached 26.96 Mbps.

By activating data saver mode, Instagram will not automatically display pre-loaded high resolution videos and photos. So, users can control the use of internet quota on Instagram to speed up the process of loading photos.

To activate this mode, users can visit "Settings", select "Account", and select "Cellular Data Settings". After that, the user can activate the "Data Saver" option by sliding the button to the right.

Users can choose three options available on Instagram to manage how high-resolution media will be displayed in their Feed.

The three choices are:

- Never: Instagram will never display high-resolution media

- WiFi Only: Instagram will only display high resolution media when the user's device is connected to WiFi

- Cellular + WiFi: Instagram will display high resolution media when the user's device is connected to cellular data + WiFi

Data Saver Mode is launched in stages starting June 5, 2019 and will be available globally for Android devices. For more information about this feature, visit the Instagram Help Center.
