“Is it possible to capture just audio in a Zoom meeting? Video recordings have a larger size and take up more device space so I only want to keep the audio recording. Can I record just audio on Zoom?”

Yes, you can record audio only on Zoom via its cloud recording feature. Cloud recording provides the “Record an audio only file” option that helps to capture audio from a Zoom meeting. To use this feature, you need to meet the requirements below:

  • You are a paid subscriber with a Pro, Education, or Business account.
  • You are the meeting host.

It’s worth noting that the “Record an audio only file” option can’t turn off video recording. Instead, it saves an extra audio file in addition to the video recording. If you want to turn off video recording in the first place and wish to record audio only on Zoom, using a third-party tool screen recording tool like SurFlex Screen Recorder will be helpful. Its audio recording feature allows you to record internal audio, microphone sound, or both on a PC or Mac. When you need to save audio from a Zoom meeting, it will perfectly suit your needs.

To record audio only on Zoom:

  1. Download and install SurFlex Screen Recorder on your computer.
  2. Select the Record Audio mode.
  3. Choose System Sound.
  4. Prepare the Zoom meeting.
  5. When you are ready, click REC.
