Do you know that instagram and Youtube are the major apps that exhaust data very fast?
This is because everything on instagram deals with HD pictures and many short HD videos
Youtube on the other hand streams HD unless you set it to your preference
There’ a solution!
So if you are an ardent user of both apps and wants to save data stay with me while I give you some useful tips.
If you are not on budget or you have a free WiFi around you this post is certainly not for you, at this point you can stop reading but if you feel you’d love to have the knowledge so you can inform others who need it then stay with me.
Instead of streaming youtube videos download them! Yes downloading them is way cheaper and lovely because you can always play it over and over again without using data.
Yes Youtube videos can be downloaded just Google up ‘Vidmate Apk’ download and install it.
Note I said you should Google it up because you can’t find it on Google play store.
Once installed you can download any video of your choice on youtube in any format you want, I advice you choose.MP4 format and never HD.
Instagram on the other hand can be accessed through their mobile site using your browser instead of the mobile app. The mobile site save more data than the mobile app that takes up more data because of the HD qualities therein and auto streaming of those short videos.
Another thing that exhaust data is excessive downloading and sharing of media files especially video files on Whatsapp.
Disable ‘Auto- download’ on your whatsapp to avoid all files downloading automatically, especially to avoid repeated downloading of one particular video that your contacts share randomly.
Do you know that whatsapp story can be so interesting to view? If your contacts upload more of ‘text’ story then your data is save but if they upload more of videos and pictures am sorry your data will fly away if you always view their whatsapp story.
If you are usually awake till 12 am then subscribe for night browsing @ 25 Naira and watch all you want and laugh all you want with assurance that your data is save.
I hope these little tips help.
If you have others please do well to add in the comment section let’s all learn.
