You can now limit Google Meet data usage on Android and iOS mobile devices. When enabled, this will help to:
- Limit data use, conserving data on your mobile plan
- Conserve battery power
- Lower the demand on your phone’s CPU
Why you’d use it
Google Meet automatically adjusts to your device, network and set-up to provide the best possible meeting experience. However, you may want to adjust the quality of your meeting to reduce impact on your mobile device. The data saver setting can help:
- Minimize cellular data usage
- Maximize battery life
- Free up your device's CPU and memory for other tasks
When needed, you can use Google Meet in higher quality by simply toggling the data saver setting off.
