Limit mobile data use on Google Meet

If you're running out of monthly data on your mobile plan, you can lower how much data you're using the Google Meet app. Keep in mind, calls in the Meet app work over Wi-Fi and cellular data so you can make calls anywhere you have internet access.

Important: When your device is connected to Wi-Fi, Meet still uses a small amount of mobile data. This keeps your conversation going if the Wi-Fi drops. To stop using mobile data as a backup, follow the instructions in the "Turn mobile data off" section below.

Connect to Wi-Fi

Before you make or answer calls, make sure your mobile device is connected to a Wi-Fi network.

Manage mobile data use

If you want to lower your data use or change your call quality, you can limit, increase, or switch mobile data on or off.

Limit mobile data usage

If you can't connect to a Wi-Fi network, Meet automatically lowers your connections to 1Mbps.

For legacy calls (previously known as Duo):

  1. On your Android device, open the Google Meet app .
