Turbo mode

Turbo is a mode that is activated when the internet connection is slow in the browser (it is based on Opera Turbo technology from Opera Software). This helps speed up page loading and saves your traffic. Pages load faster due to reduced data volume (page contents, including videos, are 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.

Restriction. Turbo mode does not apply to pages that use HTTPS. These pages do not pass through the Yandex servers; they display directly in your browser.

Two thresholds determine when Turbo mode switches on and off:

  • If the connection speed falls below 128 Kbit/s, Turbo mode automatically switches on. When the speed increases, it remains on until the speed exceeds 512 Kbit/s.
  • If the connection speed exceeds 512 Kbit/s, Turbo automatically switches off and the icon disappears. If the connection speed falls below 512 Kbit/s after this, Turbo mode stays off until the speed decreases to 128 Kbit/s.

    Restriction.  You can't adjust the speed thresholds for switching Turbo mode on and off.

Turn off video compression

By default, the browser compresses video when Turbo mode is on. Playback of the compressed video begins when you click 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.

Turn off video compression:

  1. Tap the icon Settings.
  2. Tap Turbo Mode.
  3. Turn off Video Compression.
Turn off Turbo mode
  1. Tap the icon Settings.
  2. Tap Turbo Mode.
  3. Move the switch to the Disabled position.
