When you have a limit on data you have to be conscious of how much you are using on a day-to-day basis. If you have unlimited data then you do not need to worry about this… but you may be curious. Here are some of the top apps and how much data they roughly consume.
FaceTime uses around 85MB an hour, which is quite low for a video calling application. Perfect for those who need to take meetings on the go.
On Facebook browsing uses around 80MB and video watching on Facebook takes up 160MB an hour.
General web browsing consumes around 60MB an hour. This will vary from website to website, as image-heavy websites will consume more data.
Instagram consumes approximately 720MB an hour. As Instagram contains images and videos it naturally will use up more of your data than other platforms. So if you are actively browsing on Instagram you could be consuming a large amount of data.
Watching videos on the go will consume around 300MB of data an hour. Depending on the quality of the video you could be consuming a lot more, so maybe opt for a lower quality video to save you some precious data.
Apps like Spotify and Apple music will use around 150MB an hour! So if you want to save your data then download your favourite playlists when connected to WIFI so you can listen offline and save your data.
When in a pinch and need to download an app on the go you will be able to check before downloading how much it will consume. Updates on the other hand will consume around 250 – 290MB. So if you are low on data make sure you update when connected to WIFI.
How To Check Data Usage
If you are curious as to how much each of your apps is using then head on over to your settings. In settings click Mobile Data and there you will be able to see how much each individual app consumes. Data consumption really varies between apps and individuals.
