If you’re a licensed user on one of Zoom’s paid plans, you can record meetings on your phone. However, this feature is not available for free users. Additionally, you must be the host of the meeting as the record option is not made available to participants.
To initiate a recording, licensed users can click on the ellipsis and choose “Record to the Cloud.” On Android, the option might just read “Record” rather than “Record to the Cloud.” Once the recording starts, you will see confirmation in the top right corner of the screen. You can either stop or pause the recording by clicking the notification. Ending the meeting will also stop the recording.
It’s important to note that any activity outside of the app is not recorded unless you are also sharing your screen. So, if you click out of the Zoom app to reply to a message or check another app, this is not recorded by Zoom.
The recording is not processed until after the meeting has finished. Zoom will notify you by email when the recording is ready to download. In the email, there is a link to access the recording, as well as a second link that you can use to share the recording with others. You will need to provide both the link and the password to others for them to be able to access the recording.
You can also access the recordings yourself by logging into your Zoom account in a browser and choosing “Recordings.” If you’re in the Zoom app, open up the settings window, choose “Recording,” and click the “Manage” button under “Cloud Recordings.” There you’ll also see an indicator which shows you how much of your cloud storage you have used.
If it was a long meeting, it might take a while before the video is ready to download. Keep in mind that any activity outside of the app is not recorded unless you are also sharing your screen.
In conclusion, if you’re a licensed user on one of Zoom’s paid plans, recording meetings on your iPhone is possible. Simply follow the steps provided above, and you’ll be able to record and access your Zoom meeting recordings easily.
