How to See/View call history and recordings in zoom App

This post was most recently updated on September 26th, 2022

Zoom Phone makes it possible for you to view your call history, including all incoming and outgoing calls within your account so long as you have activated Zoom Phone with your account. If you have enabled contact integration in your account, you will be able to create a new contact from any entry in your call history.



  • For those of you who need to filter calls by date or contact, you can use Zoom’s web portal to view call history and recordings.
  • The Zoom web portal is the only place where you can access another phone user‘s recordings if your administrator has granted you access.
  • Zoom’s automatic recordings are only accessible by administrators by default. You might not be able to access your automatic recordings if you haven’t been granted access by your admin.
  • Your own ad hoc recordings are available for playback, download, and deletion by default (recordings generated during in-call controls). Access to your recordings will need to be granted by your admin if you do not see them.
  • In Zoom desktop and mobile apps, call history and recordings are synchronized. A red circle appears as a notification. You will also be able to remove the notification icon on the app when you play a new call recording in the desktop client.



Please refer to the administrator article for more information regarding accessing call recordings if your administrator has given you the ability to view the call recordings for other extensions. You can, however, view your own call recordings in this article.

How to identify call history entries in the desktop client or mobile app

Caller ID

  • Zoom Phone displays a caller ID name above a phone number if a caller ID is available for the number.
  • When the call is from an internal number, Zoom displays the contact’s name from their Zoom room display. If the video is off, this will show or hide your name or profile, not their caller ID name. You can also always see the extension number for the contact listed in their profile.
  • If the phone number belongs to an integrated contact, Zoom Phone will display the names of the integrated contact as set in their third-party service instead of their names displayed on the caller ID display.

Icons and labels

  • A black text appears when an incoming call has been answered. Red text is displayed when missed calls have been received.
  • When you make an outgoing call, the icon shown below will appear:
  • Under the number for calls which have been recorded, you will see Recording.
  • An indication will appear next to the call queue name when a call is routed through a call queue.
  • The entry will be shown anonymously if the caller did not provide a caller ID (hide their number and name) or if the caller telephoned without identifying their identity.

Frequently Asked Questions

On Zoom’s website, you can find all the Zoom meetings that you have recorded on your Android device. You need to sign in to by going to the website. On the left side of the screen, click on ‘Recordings’, which is located on the left side of the screen. Click on ‘Local Recordings’ if you are unable to find the recording in Cloud Recordings.
How to troubleshoot a failure to convert a local recording
  1. Using the Zoom desktop client, sign in to your account.
  2. You will see a tab called Meetings at the top of your screen.
  3. In the Recorded section, click the button.
  4. Select the meeting topic that has a local recording associated with it.
  5. Click on the Convert button.
When you click on the meeting link in the “Topic” column you will be able to identify the recording you want to download by selecting the meeting in the “Topic” column. 3. By clicking the “Download (3 files)” button, you will be able to download your recording.
Recordings that have been kept for more than 180 days will be automatically deleted by automated daily processes. You will be able to access deleted recordings within your Zoom account “trash” folder for a period of 30 days after the recording has been deleted, after which the recorded will be permanently deleted.
In order to keep track of how you are using Zoom meetings, you can view the meeting history. You will be able to keep a record of all the meetings that you have hosted or attended through this application. By utilizing the dashboard and reporting capabilities of Zoom, you will be able to view in-depth historical data relating to the way your organization is using Zoom, based on the type of account and user that you have.
Regardless of whether you are using an Android device or an iPhone device, the procedure of doing that is the same. I would like to point out that meetings can only be recorded if you are a member of the app and are paying for it. It is saved online in a folder called ‘My Recordings’ on the Zoom website, which means that the recording does not get saved on your device.
An admin can delete a user using the Zoom web portal or API call without providing the option parameter to transfer the recording files to another existing licensed user within the Zoom account in the event that the user is deleted. In less than 24 hours, the user’s recording files will be moved to a permanent deletion state, which means that they will be permanently deleted.
There is a possibility that a meeting will continue to record until the storage limit has been reached during a recording.
