If you are a person who travels a lot for work and therefore relies on your mobile data to access the internet, this Android tip is very useful for you.

Two interesting tricks regarding Google Chrome and WhatsApp

Lite mode on Google Chrome

Google Chrome has a built-in “ Lite Mode ” that consumes 60% less data while providing equally fast Internet speed. Chrome developers themselves advocate “Lite mode” for their users.

To enable “Lite Mode” on Google Chrome , here’s what you need to do.

  • Open Google Chrome and click on the three dots at the top
  • Go to settings
  • Here you will easily find the “Lite Mode”

Enable it and you are good to go. Now you can save a ton of mobile data whenever you’re on the go.

Another trick, especially for WhatsApp users  . Since the “Stories” format became popular, every social media platform, including WhatsApp, has graciously adopted it. Often, when we want to see a long WhatsApp status of our friends, we have to keep the screen held with our fingers, in order to prevent the stories from disappearing.

However, if you want to read or watch stories without holding the screen, here is a solution.

  • Open the WhatsApp status you want to watch
  • While the status is playing, use three fingers to click on the screen

This way the state you are watching will stop and you can read the story at your own pace.

So, these were some Android tips and tricks you can use in 2021. Once you start exploring, you’ll find that Android is an operating system with thousands of hidden features. Most of them may not be worth your time at all, but sometimes you may just find gold.
