Tech Tip: Record a Video Clip in Teams!

Have something quick to say but it makes more sense in person? Unfortunately, sometimes this isn’t possible with many of our colleagues and classmates being remote. Luckily, Microsoft has been working to enable more in-person conversations on a virtual platform.

Behold, Teams Chat Video Clips! You can now have the best of both worlds with the Record a video clip feature in Teams. This feature enables you to record quick video clips, less than one minute, and share them via Teams one-on-one or group chats.

To record a video clip in Teams:

  • Open your desired conversation in Chat
  • Below the text box click the button to Record a video clip next to the paper airplane/send button
