Use the Built-in GoToMeeting Cloud Recorder

GoToMeeting has a built-in recorder that everyone at the conference can access. This GoToMeeting video recording option is great if you don't want to install a 3rd party app to do this activity. It will automatically record the meeting host's screen and also the audio captured for all the participants. The recording function also has an automatic transcriber to minimize taking notes.

But here's the catch, the built-in recorder has some limitations that might stop you from using it. First, the recording file size is big. The process will stop automatically if your remaining storage space is only 100 MB. Also, you might notice some blank screens on the final output. The output format is saved as G2M, which is not available to open to other media players. You might also receive an error message saying, "GoToMeeting recording is not available for this meeting." So, suppose these disadvantages are too much for you. In that case, we recommend an alternative that can also record GoToMeeting as attendee, which is Screen Grabber Premium.
