To reduce the amount of data used in video calls and meetings on your mobile device, you can change a setting in the Teams mobile app to limit the amount of data used on your device.

Teams will still provide a quality viewing experience while balancing the number of participants, bandwidth conditions, and other factors.

To change this setting:

  1. Tap your profile picture and then select select Settings  Settings button.

  2. Select Data and storage and then Reduce data usage.

    Teams-mobile-data and  storage setting              Teams-mobile-reduce data usage setting  

  3. Select one of the following options: Never, On cellular networks, or Always.

To reduce data usage in video calls and meetings, choose On cellular networks (for when you're using cellular data) or Always (for both cellular and Wi-Fi connections).
