Snap Talk is a safe space for Snapchat enthusiasts young and old. Not, like, super old, though. Don't be weird. Follow along here, and follow "THRILLIST" on Snapchat, wouldja?
If you have unlimited data, this article is not for you. Stop reading now and go frolic in the gigabytes, you lucky bastard. For the rest of us: Snapchat eats a lot of data. Like, a lot. Even if you’re vigilant about jumping on Wi-Fi whenever possible, it’s easy to rack up data overage charges every billing cycle. Here are two easy tricks that’ll help dial back Snapchat’s data-guzzling in those instances when Wi-Fi just isn't available.
Build stories on airplane mode
It's just a fact of life that the coolest stuff you want to snap always happens beyond the safety of Wi-Fi. But if you don't upload it on your mobile data, you can't upload it at all, right? Wrong! Circumvent this problem with airplane mode. Activating your phone's no-data setting (just like you would on a plane) games the Snapchat app into storing your snaps to upload later, rather than in the moment.
