1.0 Quick info 

Cloud recording makes storing and sharing your files easy. Our cloud recording feature is similar to other services — like Dropbox, Google Drive or Box — where your files are backed up to a cloud server. 

  • A computer participant using Chrome has to start and stop the recording. 
  • All video and audio is recorded, including Daily.co TV streams, dial-in audio and screen shares.
  • Cloud recordings are stored and backed up to our servers. (Unlike a local recording, which is only stored on your computer.) 
  • Cloud recordings are saved to your dashboard. 
  • Cloud recordings are currently free. However this feature may be a paid upgrade in the future. (Local recordings will remain free.)
  • Each cloud recording has a 3-hour time limit.
  • You get an unlimited number of cloud recordings 

2.0 How to record to the cloud

A computer participant using Chrome has to start the recording. All video and audio and screen shares will be recorded.

Start recording

1. First click the Record button in your video calls controller (bottom-left)

2. Next, click the Record to cloud option in the modal window — below the red Start local recording button.

You'll see a notification that your recording is starting after a 5-second countdown. (Other participants in your meeting will be notified that a recording is starting and then also see a recording banner in the call itself.) 

Stop recording

To stop your recording click the Stop recording button in the banner at the bottom of your screen. 

This immediately stops the recording. You cannot start a new recording until your previous recording has finished uploading to the cloud.

After your recording has stopped it will finish uploading to the cloud. Once uploaded, your recording will be available to view in your dashboard.
