According to this page, the data saver icon should look like a pause button.

However, on my nexus 6P (using android nougat), I get a plus icon instead whenever I turn on data saver. enter image description here

What does that mean? Am I understanding something wrong? Also, if I keep it on, does the data saver option (no background download, and limited app connectivity) when I am on an unmetered Wi-Fi?

    They might have changed it. The linked article ends with "it's worth remembering that Data Saver may change (or even disappear entirely) between now and the final release." – Άνδρας Nov 13 '16 at 8:09

It looks like Google changed it. According to a video on this page it should look like a plus sign.

  • Thanks. One more question. When I turn on the data saver, does it also affect the traffic with unmetered wi-fi, such as no background update, no automatic loading of images etc.? – Della Nov 15 '16 at 3:42
  • On the same page it says "cell data" so I expect that all background Wi-Fi data will be unaffected by data saver. (If you use your device as a Wi-Fi hotspot while connected only by cell data, other devices connecting through your phone will be affected) – kirodge Nov 15 '16 at 7:51
