One of the meeting app’s functions is the ability to record the Zoom meeting. This can be very valuable if some members are unable to attend the meeting. This feature can also be helpful if the meeting was very long and you want to refer back to certain parts.
How to Record a Zoom Meeting
Users can record meetings for free on the desktop app, but you will need a paid subscription to record on a phone. The host of the meeting can record and allow permission for others to also record the meeting as a participant. However, if the host does not give recording permission, you will not be able to. You are also able to record yourself without other participants, and send this recording to others.
Step 1: Set File Where You Want to Save the Recording To
On the ‘Home’ tab, click on the settings represented by the gear icon. Now click on the ‘Recording’ tab and set the location you want to save the recording.
Step 2: Join Meeting and Click on ‘Record’
While in your meeting, click on the ‘Record’ button at the bottom of the screen. You will only see this icon if your host has allowed recording.
Step 3: Pause or Stop Your Recording
In the upper left corner of the screen, you will see a recording label. You can pause or stop the recording at any point by using the pause and stop button at the bottom of the screen.
Step 4: Save the Recording
Once you stop the recording, it will be saved to the location you specified in step 1. There will also be a copy in the ‘Meetings’ section of the app under ‘Recorded’ which you can download.
Meet, Record, and Stay in Touch
Recording a Zoom meeting is as simple as most other functions on the Zoom app. Now you can easily record your meetings and send them to absent members or refer back to them.
