Data saving switch on Opera button (Android)

  • Data saving is one of the greatest features of Opera for Android.
    However, 6 clicks are required every time you want to switch it on/off:

    1. Opera button
    2. Options
    3. Data saving
    4. Switch on/off
    5. Back
    6. Back

    Which is, needless to say, super annoying.
    I wonder why this switch is not located next to the ad blocker and the new night mode, right on the Opera button menu.

    Also, an option for the data saving mode to be auto disabled when on wifi would be ultra cool. UC Browser has this feature, if I remember correctly.

    Thanks for your nice work!
    (Enjoying Opera since... 2002 I think)

  • @merineo I don't think data savings are intended to be turned on/off on a constant basis.

    That's the point.
    I'd like to be able to do it. I want data saving mode on when on 3G/4G, and data saving mode off while on wifi.
    UC Browser gives me this option, Opera doesn't (and makes it difficult to do it manually).
