How Much Data Subscription You will need

Microsoft video conferencing application is yet another famous app for video conferencing. The app is touted to give best audio, video and content sharing experience regardless of the network conditions. The company claims it brings conservative bandwidth utilization and can deliver HD video quality under 1.2Mbps. So, here how much it consumes data for one hour of video calling:

225MB of data Peer-to-peer quality video calling 360p at 30fps

540MB of data for peer-to-peer HD quality video calling with a resolution of HD 720p at 30fps

675MB of data for peer-to-peer HD quality video calling with a resolution of HD 1080p at 30fps

225MB of data for Group Video calling

450MB of data for HD Group video calling 540p videos on 1080p screen

This is one of the reasons why it is more economical to use your phone rather than a laptop. As the screen resolution will determine how much data will be consumed.
