Android 7.0 – Use Data Saver To Save Battery Life

Saturday, June 17th, 2017 by | Filed Under: Android, Smartphones

Some apps, especially social media apps and games, can drain the life out of your battery even when it seems they are not in use. But there’s a nifty feature in Android 7.0 Nougat that can prevent them from sucking the life out of your phone.

Data Saver allows you tp pick which background apps can use data. Let’s see how it works.

First, go to Settings. Swipe down from the top of your screen and select the gear icon.


Then scroll down to Data Usage.


Select Data Saver


Turn it on.  Now tap Allow app while Data saver on.


Choose which apps you want to allow to update in the background by sliding the button next to them into the on position.



When you’re using an app it will update, but it may do so less frequently.
