Here comes a novelty that will please users of Facebook Messenger. The social network is testing a new data saving feature that should significantly reduce the amount of data that the messaging application consumes, something very useful for those who will use it outside of a cover WiFi .

The Android Police website found that the version beta app to Android has a “Date Saver” option that, when activated, causes the Messenger stop download pictures and videos automatically when the user is using their own internet . Currently, all that is received by Messenger is downloaded even if the user has not yet seen the message in question.

already using a WiFi network, all remain the same and the texts continue to be downloaded automatically, no matter what the user’s internet source. The tool also displays a meter that shows an estimate of the savings made possible with your drive.
