If you want to stop recording, go to More options > Stop recording.
  2. Download the recording of your meeting
    The recording will appear in the meeting chat – or in the channel feed, if the meeting is in a Teams channel. Click on the link to the file with the recording. The recording will be saved to your computer.

Pro Tip:
