Crossy Road is a simple endless running game, which reminds us of Flappy Bird. Crossy Road can be played on Android or iOS devices without any internet connection, but you then can not use features that require a connection, like joining online leaderboards or events.
Crossy Road consumes between 5MB and 10MB of mobile data over 10-30 minutes of playtime. Watching in-game advertisements can increase the consumed amount drastically.
If you want to play with some of your friends together, or join current events, you need to join a WiFi network or enable mobile data.
If you connect to a WiFi network or use mobile data, the app will consume some data in the background. Depending on how long you play Crossy Road, the game will consume a decent amount of your mobile data. Especially if you watch the commercials that get displayed from time to time in the app. They use more data than anything else, so it would be best if you’re connected to a WiFi network.
Note: I wrote an entire review about Crossy Road, which you should check out here.
Today, I joined a current online event where I could win a decent prize if I manage to get into the top three players. After a few tries, I checked my data consumption graphic for Crossy Road. On this graph, we can see that the game consumed 21,08 MB on WiFi.
With WiFi deactivated, I played five games and tried to get as far as I could. In addition, the game showed me two 15 to 20-second commercials that I had to watch. In the end, Crossy Road used 8,24 MB of mobile data, which is very high for only playing for a few minutes.
And I am not the only person that sees such results. Some other people stated that Crossy Road the app that consumes the most mobile data per month. In comparison, Brawl Stars ( a pure online multiplayer game) only consumes 8,31 MB over the same time period when connected to WiFi.
