Microsoft Teams for macOS gets an oft-requested feature in the form of the ability to automatically record meetings. The news was announced via a message board post – it was simply a response to a three-year-old question.
First spied on by Windows Latest and 9to5Mac, a post on the Microsoft Teams forum in September 2018 made a simple suggestion.
If you know in advance that a meeting needs to be recorded, it would be nice to have an option when scheduling the meeting to start recording automatically. It can help you remember to start recording and save time and effort without having to remember to do it manually.
Then, almost three years later, a Teams Engineering employee called Alex responded with the news everyone’s been waiting for – the feature is coming.
Thank you for your opinion! The team is currently working on this request. We’ll share an update as soon as it’s available.
There was no explanation as to when the feature could go live, suggesting it’s not something we should expect anytime soon. But the fact that we are working on automatic recording of meetings will be music for those who have to use it. Or they could just use Zoom instead.
