One of the best features of the Zoom Video Conferencing app is that it allows you to record your video conference and store it on your device for future reference or study. There are many situations where you end up discussing a lot of important points in the conference call but are unable to recollect the complete context after a few days. Saving a recording of the conference is useful in recollecting the exact details fo the conference.

In this tutorial, we will take a look at how you can record your Zoom video conference (Free and Paid Account)

Zoom, being a cloud-based video conferencing app, allows you to perform a recording and save it on the cloud, but this feature is limited to those who have a paid account only. However, Zoom also offers a local recording option, which can be used by both Free and Paid users. In this case, the recording of the conference is saved locally on your device.

Now, lets get started with the tutorial –
