Record and Edit Microsoft Teams Meeting on Mac

Not everyone has a Microsoft 365 Enterprise account and sometimes you may want to record a Teams meeting without letting everyone know. Here is where a dedicated screen recorder comes in handy.

CleanShox X – Screen Recorder

Mac offers a default screen recorder tool that you can use to record Microsoft Teams and even a Zoom recording. But it doesn’t record computer audio and only captures the device’s microphone. For a better experience, you can use a third-party app called CleanShot X.

ClearShot X is a one-time purchase at $29 and allows you to take pictures/videos with annotation tools and one can also create a gif from the recorded content.

Before you go ahead and share it, you can edit the video, remove troubling parts, add text where needed, and do a lot more with a dedicated video editor on Mac.
