Netflix has officially announced the mobile data saver feature it’s been quietly testing for a while. It also confirmed that its mobile data streams have been capped at 600Kbps. Both are efforts to save your precious capped data.
According to a post on Netflix’ company blog, the streaming service has been capping video streams at 600Kbps for years in an effort to make sure that you don’t exceed your data cap. While it’s sweet Netflix cares so much, many consumers would probably like to make that choice for themselves.
To compensate, Netflix is going to roll out its Mobile Data Saver feature, which will allow users to choose whether they blow through a lot or a little of their data while binge watching on the road.
