Facebook working on reducing data usage on its App for Android


Facebook appears to be testing a new feature in its Android app
among some users that will make the app use less of your precious
Data. However, it doesn’t appear to be anything beyond a
simple photo resolution switcheroo, reducing the size of images
that appear in your News Feed so that downloading them
consumes less data. Interestingly, the toggle for the feature is
positioned directly at the top of Facebook’s labyrinthine sidebar
menu, which is prime real estate. It’s possible a wide rollout
implementation would see this feature nested down in the settings
area, though, and that this current placement is simply an attempt
to maximize engagement with the toggle among users with whom
it is being tested.
