Hey everyone, so my mom used to have a Galaxy Note 2, and a couple of years ago, I upgraded her to a Pixel 3A XL which she loves. For video chatting, we use either Duo or Hangouts. My mom is on a 6 gig per month capped data plan from Verizon Wireless, and I have unlimited data. It seems like ever since my mom upgraded to her Pixel 3A XL though, her monthly data usage has gone up quite steadily even though she's using the phone exactly how she used to. She read on some forum that Pixel phones use more data from apps than other Android phones do... that part doesn't make sense to me.. has anyone else ever heard of anything like that before? She also read on the same forum that even if your phone is on Wi-Fi, when you're video chatting using Duo, Duo is still using mobile data in addition to Wi-Fi? Again, that also doesn't sound right to me....Has anyone herd of that issue either? Going forward, we'll have to use only Hangouts for video calling since it just uses Wi-Fi and no bile data whatsoever. Any help is appreciated for this really weird issue. I do not eve know the answer to this one! thanks a bunch!
