Many tools exist to help you record your screen - including ones that come pre-installed as screen recorders, but the vast majority of them are clunky to use and certainly don't work well for capturing your meetings.

Supernormal's chrome extension is the #1 meeting recording and note taking tool for Zoom. Below is our step by step guide to capturing your Zoom calls.

Ever wonder why some people can record in Zoom while others can't? It turns out that only the host of a Zoom call can turn on recording.

Wait a minute! With Supernormal's chrome extension, you can record all your Zooms for free, with an unlimited recording length. You don't have to be the host to record either.
