How To Record A Webex Meeting On Mac

Recording a Webex meeting on a Mac can be a useful means of preserving important discussions and presentations for future reference. As a frequent attendee of virtual meetings, I have personally found this functionality to be incredibly beneficial. In this article, I will walk you through the steps of recording a Webex meeting on your Mac, offering detailed guidance and sharing my own insights and tips along the way.

Step 1: Launch the Webex Meeting

To start recording a Webex meeting, the first thing you need to do is launch the Webex application on your Mac. If you don’t have it installed, you can download it from the official Cisco Webex website. Once the application is up and running, log in with your Webex account credentials.

Step 2: Join the Meeting

After logging in, you will be presented with the Webex main interface. Look for the “Join a Meeting” option and click on it. Enter the meeting details, such as the meeting number or URL, provided by the meeting host. Click “Join” and wait for the meeting to start.

Step 3: Start Recording

Once you have successfully joined the meeting, locate the controls at the bottom of the Webex interface. Look for the “Record” button, which should be represented by a red dot or an icon resembling a video camera. Click on the “Record” button to start recording the meeting.

It’s worth noting that, as the host of the meeting, you have the ability to control whether or not participants can record the meeting. If recording is disabled by the host, you may not see the “Record” button or be able to initiate the recording.

Step 4: Manage Recording Settings

Before you start the recording, you can adjust the recording settings to suit your needs. To access the recording settings, click on the three-dot menu located near the “Record” button. From the menu, select “Recording Settings”. Here, you can choose to record audio, video, and/or shared content.

Keep in mind that recording audio, video, and shared content simultaneously may increase the file size of the recording. Be sure to have enough available storage on your Mac to accommodate the recording.

Step 5: Interact and Participate in the Meeting

While the meeting is ongoing, make sure to actively engage and participate. Take notes, ask questions, and contribute to the discussions. The recording will capture both the visual and audio elements of the meeting, including any screen sharing or presentations.

Step 6: Stop and Save the Recording

Once the meeting concludes, you can stop the recording by clicking on the “Record” button again. The recording will be automatically saved to the default location on your Mac. You can also choose a different location to save the recording by selecting “Stop and Save As” from the three-dot menu.


Recording a Webex meeting on your Mac is a straightforward process that can greatly enhance your virtual meeting experience. Whether you want to review important information, share the meeting with absent colleagues, or simply have a reference for future use, the ability to record meetings on Mac comes in handy. Just remember to respect the privacy of other participants and obtain necessary permissions if you plan to share the recording with others. Happy recording!
