Can I record a Teams meeting if I am not the host?

You can record a Teams meeting if you are not the host. But there are some limitations. The meeting host will need to permit you to record the meeting.

You can circumvent this limitation by using screen recorder software.

Why can’t I record my Teams meeting? 

Not having the latest version can cause this problem. Cache issues or low memory can lead to this issue as well. If your organization doesn’t allow recording, you’ll also experience this problem.

Why is the recording option disabled in Teams? 

This can occur if the recording is disabled by the administrator. If the path to the folder is changed or app cache is corrupted, you can get this problem. Clearing the cache in Teams should fix things.

The Microsoft Teams’ recordings are usually stored on OneDrive or SharePoint, depending on the meeting type. Channel meetings go to SharePoint while others are saved to OneDrive.
