Use Meeting Transcriptions (Smart Meeting Assistant)

Meeting transcriptions (GoToMeeting's Smart Meeting Assistant) is the textual representation of your meeting conversations. It automatically transcribes your recorded meeting and provides you a simple link to share with attendees so they can view the interactive recording, search for keywords, and more! This feature allows you to focus on your meeting, while GoToMeeting focuses on the note-taking.

Note: Transcriptions currently only supports English. The features that are available on your account may vary depending on your subscription plan.
