Call recording permissions in video conferencing software

In summary, the host who creates a video conferencing meeting on platforms such as Teams, Google Meet, Zoom, and Skype has the permission to record the call. However, in Zoom, participants may also have the option to record, which can be controlled by the host. Other participants can also use their own screen recording software to record the call, but it is important to consider laws and company policies regarding recording. According to Microsoft Teams' support page, the host has the ability to start or stop recording on the platform.

TL;DR Summary
Call recording permission in video conferencing software.
Do the Host only get the permissions of call recording in video conferencing software?

I.e. Teams, Google meet, Zoom, Skype etc.

I mean the Host who creates the meeting and invite other participants to join the meeting on a specific date and time only has the permission to record the call. The participants who join the call can also record the video call?

In Google Meet, only the host has the permission. In Zoom, I have seen that participants can record the meeting too, but the availability of that option can probably be controlled by the host. Can't comment on the others.

You can, of course, use your own screen recording software and record the call.

Beyond software permissions, laws vary from state to state and from country to country so make sure you're not running afoul of any law or company policy.
