Just like counterpart apps, Facebook’s Messenger app will be getting an update that would see it save your mobile data.



Who’s excited? 

Though this feature is still undergoing beta testing on some Android devices, we expect it to also hit iOS devices later.

The data saver option, as proposed by Facebook Messenger, will allow users to manually download images and videos received. This is as against the usual automatic app download.

To enable this, head to the account settings menu of the Messenger app and tap on Data Saver.
Then you need to toggle-on the option with the same name. The app also updates you about the estimated mobile data saved from the feature.

When you are connected to a Wi-Fi network, the app will automatically download videos and pictures. The data saver option will help users to be more efficient in their mobile data usage; thus, saving cost.

Earlier this month, Facebook rolled out the option to enable end-to-end encryption on Messenger conversations. This update brings added privacy to Messenger chats, similar to what obtains on WhatsApp.

However, unlike WhatsApp, Messenger users are required to manually choose end-to-end encryption for every new conversation.
