Use less data and browse faster with Chrome’s Lite mode

When you browse with Lite mode, you may use less mobile data and you may load web pages faster.

How Lite mode works

When you use Lite mode, some of your web traffic may go through Google servers before being downloaded to your device. If the page is loading slowly, Google servers may 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 Lite mode, keep in mind that:

  • If you browse in private, Lite mode 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 Lite mode

  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 Lite mode.
  4. Turn on Lite mode.

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
