Facebook and Instagram will reduce the quality of the videos

Both social networks will apply these measures in order to reduce the heaviness of browsing that is being observed on the Internet today

Facebook and Instagram announced that they will reduce the quality of their streaming transmissions due to the overload that exists today on the Internet.

Due to the large number of people who have been locked up in their homes around the world by the coronavirus, browsing times are being affected by this.

Both social networks will now proceed to reduce the bit resolution of all the videos that are uploaded to this platform, in order not to overload the net.

“To help alleviate networks in this period of high demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are going to temporarily reduce the bit resolution of videos on Facebook and Instagram in Latin America,” Facebook explained through a spokesperson. .

These are not the first to take measures of this style, days earlier Netflix indicated that it would reduce the quality of its videos in Europe due to the collapse of the Internet that is being experienced.
