Part 3. Setting Up to Record Hangouts--3 points You Should Know

1. Voice Volume

Voice Volume matters when you record a hangout call. In the group calls, usually, people talk louder, so when you record the Google hangout calls, you need to make sure that you are sitting in a silent room so the ambient sound will be there. If you are in your office, then you can close your door and put a sign of "Do not Disturb" outside of your office door.

2. Lighting

For the group, video calls, always make sure that people, who are joining video calls, are in a room where proper lighting is available. If they don’t have access to natural light, then ask them to add some extra light in the rook. Without light in the conference room, this is impossible to watch the faces of people available at the conference. If you are also joined the video conference, then make sure that you are in front of the light so people won’t face the issue of your shadow appearing in the video call.

3. Framing

When you record Google hangout calls, then while adjusting the size of the recording frame, you need to be very careful. Recording frame is the step which decides how much area of the screen you want to record.


Whatever software or way you want chooses, you can go for it, but recording the conference calls is a must if you are a student or boss in any company. This is proof that shows the statements of every person at the time of the conference. Still, after reviewing all programs, we have found the Wondershare UniConverter as the best one that supports recording calls very quickly. Even you can use it to do other tasks as well, such as download, convert, transfer, fix metadata, and many other tasks related to your video and audio files.
