Android: Every once in a while, I find myself out in the world with no Wi-Fi, bored and itching to watch Netflix on my phone — but I don’t want to go over my data cap. Opera Max helps solve that problem.
Opera Max has been around for a while, helping you compress web pages, images and (some) video to save data on your device. The problem was it couldn’t compress video from secure streams like Netflix and YouTube — until now.
Just download Opera Max and turn it on to start compressing data. You can choose which apps to compress, block apps from using data entirely, and choose between different quality settings. This is a godsend, since Netflix (shockingly) doesn’t even have quality settings in its own app.
Sure, your video won’t look as great, but at least you can still watch something if you’re nearing your data cap for the month.
