How To Download Zoom Cloud Recordings

Zoom users have the advantage to download the meeting recordings present in the cloud. The admin can also assign privileges to meeting users to access the recordings.

Zoom is a web conference tool often used by people in online meetings. Luckily, if you won't be able to listen to a Zoom meeting actively, you can download the Zoom meeting for later watching.

However, to manage and share a Zoom cloud recording,  cloud recording sharing options, authentication to view cloud recordings, and allowance to edit & delete cloud recordings need to be enabled.

Additionally, the cloud recording process needs to be completed.  Users who have enabled privileges can be able to access, download or share cloud recordings. You can either download using the Zoom platform or through a plugin.
