Twitter Introduces New Feature to Extend Battery Life

Twitter data saver

Twitter notably has already launched Twitter Lite, which does numerous data saving options natively, however the move to bring them to their mainstream app shows the option would be popular for all users. Unlike Facebook however, where you are required to download an entirely different app, Twitter users can access the data saver mode by going to settings, and flipping a switch. It gives users the option to scroll through Twitter without burning through as much data as they usually would.

When this option is enabled, videos would not autoplay and images would initially load in a lower-quality resolution, 9To5Mac reported on Wednesday. Simply click on your Twitter app - whether you're on IoS or Android - and immediately go to "settings" on your profile icon. The feature comes as a part of an app update. Twitter users previously had to manually adjust these settings but Twitter now allows you to control all the aspects of data-saving by a single control button. Twitter Lite has an install size of 3MB, which saves data and space and loads quickly on unreliable or patchy networks. One change is managing group chat members has been made easy.
