Hi Diana, 
Nest cameras are designed to record continuously and upload the footage to Google's servers where the footage is analysed to generate alerts for people, movement or sound. Because of this, the usage can be significant, even on low quality. I have pasted the estimated data usage below which will give you an idea of how much data the various settings can use. You can learn more about the data usage on the support page here
Quality and bandwidth setting
Low - 50 GB
Medium - 150 GB
High - 300 GB
