Zoom calls may be recorded, either locally on a device's hard drive or to the cloud.
Note: If you have participants in your Zoom call, they will be informed of recording. When the recording starts, all participants will be shown a prompt asking for their consent to be recorded. If they choose "no", they will exit the meeting. If they choose "yes", they will continue as normal. Learn more about consent for recordings in Zoom's guide.
Cloud recording is automatically enabled. When you record a meeting and choose Record to the Cloud, the video, audio, and chat text are recorded in the Zoom cloud. The recording files can be downloaded to a computer or streamed from a browser.
Local recording allows users to record meeting video and audio locally to a computer. The recorded files can be uploaded to a file storage service like Dropbox, Google Drive, or a streaming service like YouTube or Vimeo.
