Apps such as Youtube intelligently sense your internet speed to determine the quality of videos to serve your mobile device. The faster your internet connection, the higher the quality of video delivered to your phone. However, while you enjoy higher quality, this attracts higher data consumptions by YouTube website and App. If you notice you are consuming data than usual, this may be the root cause. To fix this follow the below steps:
- Visit the YouTube video as you normally do.
- Once the video is loaded, select the cog icon to reveal the video option as seen here
3. Reduce the quality to a value you are comfortable with as seen below (we found out that 240p is actually a decent quality for even a desktop screen).
4. You can save up 50% data consumption by doing this.
