If you are using the Zoom app for your live streaming and have a paid Zoom membership, you can record meetings in the mobile app.

These recordings won't be saved to your system, but will instead be saved to an online folder. The recording will process and appear under My Recordings on the web after you have ended the meeting.  It is not possible to store the recording locally on an iOS or Android device.

However, every account can only save a certain amount of cloud recordings before running out of space. For information on how much space your account has, or how to buy more, check out Zoom's page on cloud recording.

Also here's a Zoom support link for your reference Recording on iOS and Android 

PLEASE NOTE:

While recording using Zoom:
  • If you are screen sharing, that's what is captured (along with a side bar of participants videos), there's no way to change this
  • If you are not screen sharing, you can control what is captured (Gallery view vs speaker view). You can also force it to capture a single speaker by "spotlighting" it.
  • Each separate recording will be uploaded as a separate file even if recordings were made during the same Zoom session. 

 

Recording with Zoom Standard

If you do not have any paid Zoom membership and would like to record while streaming you need to start your Zoom session from a laptop because only the web version of Zoom allows for recording of a session for Zoom free users. The Swivl app will stream your video regardless if you are the person who initiated the Zoom meeting. You can be a general participant and join someone else's Zoom meeting and still live-stream with Swivl.

 

These recordings won't be saved to your system, but will instead be saved to an online folder. The recording will process and appear under My Recordings on the web after you have ended the meeting.  It is not possible to store the recording locally on an iOS or Android device.

However, every account can only save a certain amount of cloud recordings before running out of space. For information on how much space your account has, or how to buy more, check out Zoom's page on cloud recording.

Recording with MS Teams

If you record a meeting in MS Teams, the recording happens in the cloud and is saved to Microsoft Stream. To start recording:

  1. Start or join the meeting.

  2. Go to the meeting controls and select More options More options button > Start recording.MS_teams_2.png

The person who started the recording receives an email from Microsoft Stream when the recording is available. It also shows up in the meeting chat—or in the channel, if you’re meeting in a channel.

Recording with Google Meet

NOTE: Recording a Google Meet session requires the use of Screen Capture recording so the final video will show the Swivl video participant. Please see our special instructions for recording Google Meet here: Using Swivl Teams to Record Google Meet Livestreams with Integrated Audio Setup

For Standalone and Traditional Setup, you can record a meeting directly through Google Meet. The G Suite administrator who manages Google Meet for your organization has to allow recordings first. They are saved to the organizer’s Meet Recordings folder in My Drive=> Meet Recordings Folder. An email with the recording link is sent to the meeting organizer and the person who started the recording. The link is added to the Calendar event. To start a recording:

  1. Open Meet-> start or join a  meeting.
  2. Click More -> Record a meeting.

See the detailed instructions here: How to record a session on Google Meet
