In Microsoft Teams, users can record their Teams meetings and group calls to capture audio, video, and screen sharing activity. The recording happens in the cloud and is saved to the Recording folder in your OneDrive or SharePoint, depending if the meeting was held stand-alone (OneDrive) or in a Teams Channel (SharePoint).
