Without warm cloths, we recognize that here the most of us have smartphones just for using WhatsApp, although the most popular instant messaging service on the planet has grown and now allows not only chat, but also send multimedia content, files and even now even make video calls without leaving WhatsApp.

This consumes certainly lots of data from our mobile tariffs, leaving many users dry and without 'gigs' in the middle of the month, and also loads the memories of our smartphones in less than it takes our friends to fill groups of memes, but there is no need to worry because Facebook has certainly implemented in WhatsApp data saving mode which are not complicated to activate and configure.



If you are one of those who do not have enough gigs… This is your trick to save on WhatsApp!

We already talked to you about the first a long time ago, telling you everything you can do so that WhatsApp does not cannibalize the memory of our devices, preventing any content submitted to us from being downloaded automatically and configuring backup copies so that you can delete files from your smartphone without losing them.

If you don't want WhatsApp to be a 'gig' cannibal, turn off the automatic download of multimedia content and turn on reduced data usage in calls… Although this will obviously also limit the quality!

The second of the tricks lies in lowering the quality of calls, by preventing WhatsApp from using too much data from our mobile rates while we use Voice over IP calls within the service, and thus allowing us to save 'gigs' for other applications without having to spend money on additional data bonuses.



The way to activate this data backup is very simple, as just follow the steps below from the WhatsApp app:


  1. Access the WhatsApp settings by clicking on the three dots in the upper right corner.
  2. Find the “Storage and data” function.
  3. Activate the 'toggle' that says "Use less data for calls".

Obviously the Activating this option will limit the call quality and video calls, making them probably not as good as before, but at least some data is saved to continue using them on Instagram or other applications… It wasn't too difficult, was it?
