Google Chrome Offers a 'Data Saver' Function To Reduce Over-Use

Many consumers have issues with going over their data due to streaming videos and apps on a daily basis, which is why the newest Google Chrome version 52 update includes an Internet extension feature called 'Data Saver' that helps save. The feature is specially design to change resolution settings so that less data is used when streaming media.

One way data can easily be consumed is through watching media in higher resolution formats, which is why the 'Data Saver' feature helps keep a watchful eye to ensure the resolution is always lowered. This ensures consumers can still stream their favorite videos and media without going beyond their data cap. The loading time remains quick and efficient, while the automatic subtle decrease in resolution greatly decreases data use.
