Constantly switching from app to app makes putting all the pieces together tough. You might have meeting notes over here, action items over there, leading to a lot of jumping around—and a lot of lost focus. With the integration with Zoom, we bring everything together in one place, helping you recapture your focus.
We offer three ways to use Zoom with Otter.
Option 1: Native integration with Zoom
Note: Otter Live Notes is available only with the Otter Business plan.
Otter's native Zoom integration ("Otter Live Notes") provides a native experience within Zoom, allowing your team to view and collaborate in real-time on a live transcript to help work get done faster and bring teams together. It also creates accessibility for those that are deaf or hard of hearing with live captions. Learn how to set up and use Otter Live Notes with Zoom.
- Instantly transcribe your Zoom meetings. Instantly start transcribing Zoom meetings that you're a host of for a more seamless workflow.
- Real-time transcript and captions. Provide real-time transcription and captions to meeting participants so they can follow along, directly within the Zoom app.
- Collaborate in real-time. Easily share the real-time transcript with meeting participants to seamlessly collaborate by adding comments, highlighting text, and inserting images.
Note: Otter Live Notes only works with Zoom meetings that you are the host of and does not support meetings that you're a participant of.
Option 2: Sync your Zoom cloud recordings to Otter
Note: Syncing Zoom cloud recordings to Otter is included with all Otter plans.
If you're simply looking to transcribe your Zoom cloud recordings to Otter, we offer a simple way to sync them to your Otter account. Once your Zoom meeting has ended and the cloud recording has finished processing, the audio from the recording is automatically transcribed by Otter and the transcript is saved to your Otter account under My Conversations.
Note: Syncing Zoom cloud recordings only works with Zoom meetings that you are the host of and does not support meetings that you're a participant of.
Option 3: Have Otter Assistant automatically join your meetings
Note: Otter Assistant is available only with the Otter Business plan.
Both Otter Live Notes and syncing Zoom cloud recordings to Otter require a Zoom administrator and each Zoom user to configure their account settings. They're also limited to Zoom meetings that you host and not as a participant.
If you want to keep things simple, Otter Assistant requires no changes to your Zoom settings and it will work on any Zoom meeting, not just the ones you're the host. Otter Assistant works by joining each scheduled meeting as a virtual meeting participant to record and transcribe the meeting.
