Turbo mode is activated when the internet connection with the browser is slow. It speeds up page loading and saves your traffic. Page content, including videos, is compressed on Yandex servers before being sent to the browser.
When Turbo mode is activated, the Turbo icon appears in the right part of the SmartBox.
If Turbo mode is on, the page loading indicator turns blue.
Two thresholds determine when Turbo mode switches on and off:
When the connection speed exceeds 512 Kbit/s, Turbo automatically switches off (and the icon in the SmartBox disappears). Turbo mode remains off until the speed falls below 128 Kbit/s.
By default, the browser compresses video when Turbo mode is on. Playback of the compressed video begins when you tap the placeholder. Compressed video additionally saves up to 70% of traffic, but reduces the video quality. To view video without loss of quality, disable video compression for the tab or entirely.
