The next time one of your teammates just can’t make a meeting time, catch them up by recording your session with Virtual Meetings. You can record video, audio, and the shared screen content, and store 5 hours of recordings in your account. Share within the platform, or if you’re getting close to your 5 hour max, download the video and store it somewhere else. Learn more here.
