To change this setting:

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

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

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).
