Threatened by the global coronavirus pandemic, many people are working at home. To ensure smooth education and working, a Zoom meeting became most people's choice. (Are you interested in how to work from home productively?) Moreover, since video meetings can overcome time and geographical barriers, it has always been a steady hand for multinational conference attendees.

While hosting or attending a webinar, especially the one that lasts so long, you need to record a Zoom meeting to refer back to some specific segments. What's more, due to personal reasons, you cannot join the live conference so you'll need a full-length recorded meeting video or audio from others. Under these circumstances, EaseUS RecExperts can do you a big favor.

How to Record a Zoom Meeting Within the Desktop APP – With Permission

Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool with a local, desktop client and a mobile app that allows users to meet online, with or without video. You can easily record a Zoom meeting if your account has permission. In the desktop app, Zoom supports two recording services: local recordings & cloud recordings. Local recording is available to free and paid subscribers while the cloud recording is automatically enabled for all paid subscribers.

For your notice, Android and iOS version for Zoom only supports one-way cloud recording. Be a paid user and learn how to record a Zoom meeting on Android and iOS.

Now comes to point. As long as you're a host or the host has granted you permission to record the ongoing meeting, there is a "Record" button at the bottom of the screen. There, let's start to record a Zoom meeting.

Step 1. Join a meeting call, at the bottom-right of the screen click the Record button. Continue selecting to record on this computer or record to the cloud.
