Data savers are becoming something of a trend, with
Google recently adding one to Android and Facebook
following with the main Facebook app.
The company obviously liked the idea, because it seems it's testing a
data saving feature for Messenger as well, which should
reduce the amount of data the app consumes.
Data saver, which can be found in the app's settings area,
reduces the amount of data used when looking at pictures
of videos that have been sent to you. It does this by
enabling click-to-download on said items, instead of
automatically downloading when they are received. This
only occurs when using cellular data; if the device is
connected to a WiFi network, the app will continue to
download pictures and videos when they are received.
There's also an ability to see how much data has been
saved, which can be reset as well.

saved and a reset option.
It appears that Facebook is testing this, and not rolling the
feature out among the general public quite yet. Find the
latest version of Messenger, 18.104.22.168.69, either on APK
Mirror , or on Google Play in the beta program.
