Recently, I have been eager to get the data saver on Android to work automatically for me. My goal is to have Tasker automatically enable the built-in data saver when my data is low. Before I came up with this idea, I have search the web to see if there is any solutions exist already so I don't have to reinventing the wheel. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything on this topic so I have to create my own solution. Upon 1 week of testing, things to work as I expected so I decided to share in this article how I did it.
- An rooted Android phone -- Unfortunately, the solution I came up with only works on rooted Android phone, I'm running Android 9.0.
- A way to get to know you current data usage -- Some carriers allow you to get you data usage through SMS, some might only allow you to use USSD to get data usage. I am only covering the case of using SMS here (my case).
