Cisco Webex Meetings makes it easy to record meetings in the cloud for people who can’t attend, or for those who want to refer back to what was discussed.

As the host or alternate host of a meeting from your Webex Meetings account, you can record meetings in the cloud.

Ask the host to record it and share the recording with you.

When the recording is ready, we’ll send you an email with the recording and all the details you need to play and share it with others.
