Apple iOS users might be interested to learn that Google has this week started rolling out further access to its Google Chrome iOS app data compression features.
Allowing users of the latest Google Chrome iOS app to save money by using less data when surfing using the latest Google Chrome iOS app over their mobile data tariff.
The Google Chrome iOS app data compression features was unveiled by Google earlier this year but now the search engine giant is making the features more widely available to iOS users, helping them benefit from the compression technology installed in the Google Chrome iOS app. Google explains:
“The data compression feature is currently available to a subset of Android and iOS users – if you don’t see the option, stay tuned, as we are rolling out the feature over the coming months. If you can’t wait, you can install Chrome Beta for Android and enable the data compression feature right away.
The core optimizations, which allow us to reduce overall data usage and speed up the page load times, are performed by Google servers. When the Data Compression Proxy feature is enabled, Chrome Mobile opens a dedicated SPDY connection between your phone and one of the optimization servers running in Google’s datacenters and relays all HTTP requests over this connection.”
