lets check,How much data does a YouTube video consume while whatching ?

YouTube uses different target bit-rates depending on the source media resolution and bitrate, and the target resolution and bandwidth. The bitrate varies from 0.21 Mbps to 4.5 Mbps. At one time, Google experimented with a 5.2 Mbps 4k resolution delivery but dropped it last year.
I noted bitrate for various resolutions of a good quality video.

2160p video   :  20000 kbps

1440p  video  :     8913 kbps

1080p video  :     3774 kbps

720p  video   :    3000 kbps

480p video    :    1000 kbps

360p video    :       721 kbps

240p video    :       377 kbps

144p  video    :       80 kbps

so, for 10 minute  video, data used will be

2160p video   :  20000 *60*10/8/1024 =  1465 MB

1440p  video  :  8913 *60*10/8/1024    =   653 MB

1080p video  :  3774*60*10/8/1024     =   277 MB

720p  video   :  3000*60*10/8/1024     =   220 MB

480p video    :  1000*60*10/8/1024     =    73 MB

360p video    :   721*60*10/8/1024       =    53 MB

240p video    :   377*60*10/8/1024      =    27.6 MB

144p  video    :   80*60*10/8/1024       =    5.8 MB

in case of downloading/watching, the data would range more or less between this for "1 hour" of video.
240p ~ 150 MB

360p ~ 250 MB

480p ~ 400 MB

720p ~ 800-900 MB

1080p ~ 1.2 -1.4 GB

One min YouTube video (with all diff Video Quality)

240p - 1.23 mb

360p - 2.91 mb

480p - 5.50 mb

720p - 8.57 mb

1080p - 15.96 mb

There is an official table published for YouTube bit-rates:

240p 360p 480p 720p 1080p

700 Kbps - 1000 Kbps - 2000 Kbps - 4000 Kbps - 6000 Kbps (Max)

400 Kbps - 750 Kbps -- 1000 Kbps - 2500 Kbps - 4500 Kbps (Recommended)

300 Kbps - 400 Kbps -- 500 Kbps -- 1500 Kbps -- 3000 Kbps (Min)

The data per minute is going to depend on the bitrate of the video that was uploaded. A higher bitrate recording will obviously use more bandwidth.The bandwidth usage for the same recording at the same resolution will be identical via the YouTube site or the mobile app.
For example, at 1080p and max supported bitrate, you have 000 kbps x 60 seconds = about 43.9 megabytes per minute. That usage will be consistent for a max-bitrate 1080p video whether on mobile or not.
