Most of us pay huge amounts of money to subscribe to monthly data, whether it’s for downloading files or just browsing online. It’s a known fact that nothing drains as much of our data as video streaming, perhaps that is why Netflix has come up with a way to fix this problem.
The popular movie and TV series streaming service has just revealed that it will introduce a new data saver tool for its mobile app users. This new feature will enable users to have control over how much data is consumed when streaming over cellular networks.
The company which has over 81.5 million users globally under its wing, has moved towards limiting or increasing the quality of the videos streamed, based on what you prefer in terms of the amount of data you want to use. According to the streaming service company, the new update will add a default streaming speed of as low as 600 kilobits per second, which will allow video streaming of about three hours per gigabyte of data. The speed will apparently balance out good video quality with a decreased data consumption while preventing users from exceeding the mobile data caps or overage fees being incurred.
As for users with higher mobile data caps or running on unlimited data plans, the newly introduced controls include an “unlimited” option which enables them to set the streams to higher quality.
To locate this default setting, simply go into your App Settings then navigate to the Cellular Data Usage section.
