Use less data with Chrome’s Data Saver

With Data Saver, you can lower your phone bill and load web pages faster on slow connections.

How Data Saver works

When you use Data Saver, some of your web traffic may go through Google servers before being downloaded to your device. If the page is loading slowly, Google servers will simplify it so that less data gets downloaded to your device. Most of the time, your pages will look and work the same.

If you're using Data Saver, keep in mind that:

  • If you browse in private, Data Saver won’t work.
  • Some websites might have trouble finding your location.
  • You might not be able to use pages on a local network, like an internal company site.
  • You might have trouble with premium data services provided by your carrier. You also might not be able to sign in to your mobile carrier's website.

Turn on Data Saver

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Chrome app Chrome.
  2. At the top right, tap More More and then Settings.
  3. Under "Advanced," tap Data Saver.
  4. Turn on Data Saver.

If you’re on a page that was simplified, you can go back to the original page without changing your settings. To see the original page, at the top, tap Lite and then Load original page.

See how much data you've saved
