Facebook zaps data, well Snapchat is also guilty of this treachery #smh. But there are a couple of setting which i feel might be helpful to limit how much data and battery the app consumes, because believe it or not the application working on the background with out our consent.
When you are done reading this guide, believe, you will be able to save up some battery, so what i do is this;
I ENABLED TRAVEL MODE
This is an old trick which only a few people will know about. Whenever you are on travel mode, you save data and battery life. SnapChat app continuously preload Snaps and stories in the background without your consent but once you enable travel mode, this background process stops thereby prolonging your data plan and phone battery life.
How To Enable Travel Mode
- Swipe down to access the main menu
- Tap the gear icon on the top right corner
- Scroll down a bit and select “Manage Preferences.”
- Finally, enable the “Travel Mode” option. Once this is done, Snapchat won’t preload snaps or stories until you click on them.
SECONDLY, I DISABLED LOCATION PERMISSION
Snapchat often check for location updates in the background. This feature is one of the heaviest battery drainers in any smartphone. this drains your battery even when you are not using the app. It makes use of the Geo-filers.
How To Disable Location Permission
Simply head to applications in your android settings, select Snapchat, then choose ‘Permissions.’ Once that is selected, just disable the location option and confirm your choice when prompted.
This is a quick fix for a great battery life, hope it helps you guys.
