Latest Chrome update to save on upto 50% on data while browsing on mobile


chrome for android browser

Browsing is going to be cheaper a few days from now all thanks to Chrome browser. The Google owned browser will achieve this by compressing this on their end at their base servers before the content streams down to your Smartphone. The reduction to be reached will be up to 50% and this will have a direct impact on the users both Android and iOS. That’s not all, the security to the Chrome browser has also been stepped up to allow for safe browsing a feature that protects and malicious attacks from the web space.

The path to achieving the safe browsing is “Settings” > “Bandwidth management” > “Reduce data usage.” Then simply turn the toggle to “On.” From this menu, you’ll also be able to track how much bandwidth you save each month as you browse on Chrome.

And if you have webpages that you want to remember and save for later viewing, the new chrome update that will be available anytime now will allow you to create shortcuts to those web pages right from your home screen for a faster and easier access later. This is done by selecting “Add to home screen” from the toolbar menu.

Other features that have been retained by this update for Android include Translate that enables you to translate languages that you do not understand to that which suits you. The only drawback to this new update may be the time taken before the compression takes place on Chrome servers and then redirected to your phone. Apart from this slight delay, without a doubt is a welcomed move and is one whose benefits will reduce your overall expenditure when it comes to data.
