How to Record Google Meet Video Calls

Callnote enhances callers experience by adding the capability to record  Google Meet video and audio calls, shared screens and chats and also to take instant snapshots during the video calls. Options are available in Premium and Pro versions.

Before you start Google Meet recording:

Prepare your computer before recording to avoid re-recording and save editing time. The truth is video calls aren’t always high quality. They get impacted by a lot of different factors including how smooth and fast your system is running, your internet connection, and your microphone and camera quality.

Before you hit record, there are a few simple steps you should take:

  • First, be mindful that it takes a lot of computer processing power to record video calls and run programs like Meet at the same time. To get the best results, turn off any unneeded application. It will help with overall performance of your machine.
  • Secondly, make sure all notifications are turned off.
  • Make sure your system audio gets recorded. Built-in mics work well for having a conversation, but they’ll disappoint in a recording. Consider using an external USB headset or microphone. If you have an external webcam, it may have a microphone built into it that will provide good enough audio.
  • Make sure your guest’ s audio to be recorded as good as it can be. Consider recommending the other side of the conversation a mic or headset described above.
