With the rise of a flexible and blended work and school setup aided by technology, video conferencing apps like Zoom have become increasingly popular. While you can participate in Zoom meetings on either your laptop or smartphone, many people find the latter to be more convenient. Consequently, there may be various reasons why you may want to record a Zoom meeting on your Android phone, such as the need to review the discussion later or share the recording with absent participants. Luckily, recording a Zoom meeting on your Android phone is quite simple. In this blog post, we will guide you through the process step by step. So, continue reading for easy-to-follow instructions.
Meetings can be recorded on Android devices using Zoom.
There are two different approaches that may be taken to record a Zoom meeting, whether it be for a company or a school. Your phone’s make and model, as well as its capabilities, as well as your role in the gathering, whether you are a participant or a host, are all factors that should be considered when choosing between the two.
Using Zoom App
The Zoom application for Android is available for free download in a variety of different web stores. As a result, the Zoom app is extremely user-friendly.
It’s important to note that not everyone in a Zoom conference has the same status. There is always a host or a co-host, who can simply record the meeting, and a participant, who must receive permission to record the meeting from the host in order to do so.
By following the steps in the following guide, you will learn how to use the record function of Zoom on your Android phone so that you may record Zoom meetings.
Recording on-location for use by the Zoom host or co-host
1. Launch Zoom on your mobile device and log in to your account.
2. Once it has been opened, host a meeting or arrange one to take place.
3. It is only natural that you will go first when everyone else arrives at the meeting. In light of this, you have the option of beginning the recording right away or starting it just as the meeting is about to start.
4. In the user interface, locate the three dots in the upper right-hand corner.
5. When you have found it, go to the menu and select “record.” When you do so, an icon indicating that recording has begun will appear at the very top of the screen.
6. To adjust the settings for the recording, hit the “more” icon a second time. You can choose to pause the recording by pressing the Pause button, and you can stop the recording by pressing the Stop button.
Recordings made locally for participants using Zoom.
1. If you are a participant in a Zoom meeting and want to record it, you must first obtain permission to do so from the host or co-host of the meeting.
2. If the host or co-host gives you permission to begin recording, you can do so by navigating to the “More” option located in the bottom right corner of your screen.
3. After tapping the icon, look for the “Record” button in the menu that appears. After you press the button, a symbol indicating that you are being recorded will appear on your screen.
4. To adjust the settings for the recording, hit the “more” icon a second time. You can choose to pause the recording by pressing the Pause button, and you can stop the recording by pressing the Stop button.
Recording in the cloud without requiring a host
1. If you have a licensed version of Zoom, you are able to record a meeting even if the host is not present. This requires that you have upgraded your Zoom account. With this upgrade, cloud recording will become available to you. With this upgrade, the meeting will not be saved to the storage space available on your device but rather on the cloud. In the event that you decide to host a meeting, this will also make it possible for you to invite a greater number of people.
2. Once the upgrade has been completed, record the meeting by selecting “record” from the “more” icon in the UI of the Zoom app for Android. This option is found in the lower right.
Utilizing the Function to Record the Screen
If you are unable to record the Zoom conference by utilizing the Zoom feature, you do not need to take a snapshot of the meeting anymore because you also have the option of recording the screen with the function that comes standard on your phone. This feature is available on most smartphones, including the HONOR 70. On the other hand, not all smartphones are equipped with this feature. Make use of an application developed by a third party in these circumstances.
Utilizing the Function to Record the Screen
Follow these steps to record the Zoom conference using the screen recording capability of your device, if it has one.
1. Navigate to the notifications bar on your device and search for the screen recorder there. It is possible to recognize the screen recorder by its icon, which resembles a video camera contained within a rectangle or a dot contained within a circle.
2. Start recording your Zoom conference by clicking on this icon to get started.
Note: If the icon to record your screen is not located in the notification bar, you can look for it in the Quick Settings menu instead.
Now you know the answer, don’t you? You now have the ability to record Zoom meetings on your Android device. In the event that you need to refer back to something that was said during the meeting or if you want to share the recording with other people, this can be an extremely beneficial tool for either of those purposes. We sincerely hope that you are able to put this information to good use and that it contributes to the success of your upcoming Zoom meeting.
