Plenty of important details can be missed out during an online meeting, especially in today’s fast-paced work environment where several meetings a day are the new normal.

Thankfully this can be a thing of the past now, with the new feature that Microsoft Teams is planning to roll out soon.

It’s odd enough that the recording feature has not been present so far for users but moving forward users will soon have the option to record the meeting from the start.

Microsoft Teams new recording feature

It seems as though this feature has been in the works for some time now and an update is expected, as Microsoft states in the most recent response to the UserVoice forum:

The team is currently working on this request. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

With this feature, all the participants in a meeting will be able to see a notification message at the start of their call, designed to alert them that the meeting will be recorded.

Of course, the recording will be available to download and listen for the meeting participants, if needed, once the call has ended.

Although Microsoft has not announced a date for when this feature will be released, it is expected to happen some time at the beginning of the new month.

Several Microsoft Teams additions have been announced recently, including live transcriptions that allow users to stay updated on all important aspects discussed during meetings.
