Last month, Microsoft unveiled that it’s working on an automatic recording option for its Teams collaboration platform. The company announced today via Microsoft 365 Admin center that this update will become generally available in July.
The meeting recording option has been available in Teams for a while now, but the new capability will enable users to automatically record all their meetings by choosing the "Record automatically" option from the meetings options page. Microsoft noted that meeting organizers will be able to enable this option for a single meeting or a series of meetings. The automatic recording feature will be available on the Teams desktop, mobile (Android and iOS), as well as the web clients.
The automatic recording experience should be a handy tool for people who often forget to hit the record button for important Teams meetings. It will help employees collaborating in remote and hybrid environments to ensure that no one is left out of important conversations or briefings. This update will bring Microsoft Teams on par with its rival Zoom, which already provides the ability to record meetings automatically.
