Since Instagram launched reels, data consumption using Instagram reels has gone very high. Most of the people in the country get a limited amount of data to use daily and using Instagram for only 2 hours can hit the daily data usage limit.
But there is a solution to this problem.
Instagram comes with a data saver mode.
Enabling data saver mode can reduce data usage by reducing the quality of photos & videos that you see on Instagram.
To enable data saver mode, you have to follow these steps.
First, you have to open the Instagram mobile app on your device.
After that, you have to open settings.
If you are unable to find settings on Instagram, you just have to go to your profile section.
There you will see a hamburger menu on top.
Click that menu and you will see settings. Now you can click on the settings.
After going to the settings, you will see a list of many settings. You have to click on a list that is labelled as “Account”.
Here you will see an option with the name “Data Usage”. Click that option.
Now you will see two options. You have to enable the first one “Use less mobile data”.
After doing this step, Instagram will no longer display photos & videos in high quality. Instead, Instagram will display you the lower quality version of photos & videos.
