If you have downloaded your copy of the Signal app and got the basic setup done, you can now start exploring the Signal app. Like most mainstream messengers in the market, the Signal Messaging app allows you to make calls to your fellow Signal contacts, and from what we have tested, the call quality has surpassed our expectations. In the new update to the app, the developers have added a new feature, that makes the call feature on Signal, even more robust.
The feature in question is the ‘Use Less Data’ feature, and when enabled, it reduces the data consumption while making calls in areas wherein the network reception is low. In this tutorial, we will show you how to enable this feature on the Signal messaging app.
Step 1. Open the Signal Messaging app on your smartphone.
Step 2. Tap on the user icon at the top left-hand side of the app.
Step 3. In the settings menu, tap on the ‘Data Usage‘ option.
Step 4. Under the calls tab, tap on the ‘Use Less Data‘ option.
Step 5. You can now choose when you want the Signal app to consume less data (Cellular Only or WiFi and Cellular).
Now, whenever you make a call in an area where the network coverage is low, the Signal App will consume lesser data and in effect, the call performance will remain unchanged.
