Let's get started.

How to Record a Meeting in Teams, Zoom, Meet, or Webex With Subtitles & Translations?

We'll be taking you through this process with the help of a screen recorder called Vmaker.

Now, you may be wondering why you should be using a third party screen recording application to record your meetings when you can just record it using the native application.

Well, the answer is simple.

The native video conferencing applications like Zoom, Webex, Google Meet, Skype, and Microsoft Teams provide only limited recording functionalities. They don't come with advanced editing functionalities and will only let you record videos at a compromised quality. Also, a few video conferencing apps like Zoom and Microsoft Teams don't let their participants record their meeting without the host's permission.

The best thing though, is that it allows even its free users to record unlimited number of videos seamlessly.
