During video calls and meetings, a setting can be altered in the Teams mobile app to limit the amount of data that is used on your mobile device, as well as your mobile Internet connection, so that you can reduce the amount of data that is used during these video calls and meetings.
Despite the number of participants, bandwidth conditions, and other factors, teams will still be able to provide a quality viewing experience.
This setting can be changed by following these steps:
- When you tap the profile picture on your profile, you will be prompted to select Settings.
- Select Data and Storage from the menu, on the left-hand side, and then click on the option for Reducing data usage on the right-hand side.
- As part of your preference customization, please consider selecting one of the three options below: Never, On cellular networks, or Always, as best suits your needs.
When it comes to video calls and meetings, you can choose the option that says On cellular networks (if your device is connected to cellular data) or Always (when both cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity is available), so that your video calls and meetings are over cellular data and you can reduce the amount of data you use during those settings.
