Google Meet is getting a new "ban data access" setting on Android and iOS, in addition to a major site upgrade coming next month. It helps users to fine-tune video call output with their particular platform and network. ​

Meet automatically updates the computer, network, and set up to “provide the best possible meeting experience.” On mobile, Google is now allowing users to take it a step further by allowing them to:

  • Reduce your cellular data use.
  • Increase the battery's life span.
  • Allow your device's CPU and memory to be used for other purposes.

This switch is labeled "Limit data use," but it affects two other important Meet features. Open Settings from the navigation drawer in the dedicated Meet mobile app — not Gmail. Apart from "Send more diagnostic information," it's the only alternative.

“You can use Google Meet in better quality by simply turning off the data saver setting,” Google advises. It's a significant addition because people are using whatever computer they can get their hands on to go to school or hold a meeting at work.

Google Meet for Android and iOS now has the option to restrict data access, which will be completely available in the coming weeks:

Available to Essentials, Business Starter, Business Standard, Business Plus, Frontline, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Fundamentals, Education Plus, Nonprofits, Cloud Identity Free, Cloud Identity Premium. Available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as G Suite Basic and Business customers
