Chrome update could cut 70% of data usage on Android Google's Chrome browser for Android is getting a new improvement that can save up to 70 percent of data usage while browsing the web.
The Data Saver mode is made to reduce the amount of data downloaded when you open a webpage, and by impeding the loading of images it can reduce data usage significantly and improve the experience on a slow connection.

A user can load the image by tapping on any individual image, or there's an option to tap to load all images.

Chrome users in India and Indonesia will be the first to get this expanded Data Saver mode, with additional countries in the coming months.

When available, it can be enabled in the Advanced Settings in the browser.
