Twitter adds data-saving feature to main app

California: When Twitter announced its Lite app, one of the highlights of the trimmed version was the ability to soak in less of your data. The company is now introducing the feature to its main app.

Starting today, you will be able to switch to a data-saving mode on your iOS or Android version of the Twitter app. As Twitter explains in its tweet, you will be able to reduce the data usage by switching on the data saver mode.

To get the feature, ensure that your app is up-to-date. Now, head to the Data Usage settings and turn on the mode. When enabled, the images will load in lower quality and the videos won’t autoplay. You can choose to see a higher quality image by tapping on the more icon and selecting ‘Load High Quality’.
