If you need some input on how to keep a copy of your important meetings and conferences in Zoom, I’ve mapped out a straightforward tutorial on how to automatically record Zoom meetings on Galaxy S20. Read on for more detailed instructions.
Before you proceed, be sure to note these prerequisites:
- Only accounts that have permission can record a Zoom meeting. For free and paid subscribers, they can do local recording.
- Cloud recording on the other hand, is automatically activated for all paid subscribers.
- Only a one-way cloud recording is supported on the Zoom app for Android and iOS.
After complying with the aforementioned requirements, you may go ahead and configure the Zoom settings to activate automatic recording.
Easy steps to automatically record Zoom meeting on Galaxy S20
Time Needed : 5 minutes
The following steps are only applicable to a basic Zoom (Zoom Basic-Free) account. If you haven’t already, sign into your Zoom account to get started. Once you’re logged in, follow these steps to begin configuring the Zoom app settings for it to record meetings and webinars automatically.
- Launch the Apps viewer then select the Zoom icon.
The Zoom app opens.
- From the Zoom app main screen, scroll down and tap Meetings.
The Meetings screen with your personal meeting ID and other relevant controls will open.
- Tap the Edit button.
On the next screen, you will see different options to manage personal meeting ID info.
- Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and toggle the switch next to Automatically Record Meeting.
A new option for you to specify recording location will appear after enabling the switch.
- After making necessary changes, tap the Save button on the upper-rightmost corner of the screen.
The next meetings you will hold via Zoom will then be automatically recorded on the specified recording location, particularly a local computer.
- Android 10
- One UI 2.0 and later
- Galaxy S20
Meeting participants will be notified that the meeting is being recorded. Those who are joining the meeting through a computer or mobile, a recording notification will be shown on the screen.
Alternatively, you can record meetings or webinars to the Zoom cloud from your galaxy s20. Here’s how it’s done:
- Start hosting a Zoom meeting from your phone then tap the More icon (triple dot) at the bottom-right corner.
- Then tap Record from the pop-up menu.
- After doing so, you will see a Recording label at the top of the screen.
- To pause or end the recording, tap the More icon again then tap the Pause or End button accordingly.
After the meeting, you can access the recording under My Recordings.
Recorded meetings can later be loaded to cloud services like Dropbox, Google Drive and also on YouTube, considering that you’ve got a premium Zoom account.
As for the recording formats, Zoom saves the recordings in MP4 (video file), M4A (audio file) and TXT (chat/text file) formats. This applies to both local and cloud recording outputs.
And that covers everything in this tutorial. Please keep posted for more comprehensive tutorials, tips and tricks that will help you make the most of your new Samsung galaxy s20 smartphone.
