Meeting Recording Guest Access
Guests invited to meetings currently cannot view meeting recordings. All meeting invitees should be able to access the meeting recording.
Thank you for your feedback. We hear you and are working on improving the recording saving experience to make sharing easier. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

More importantly, be consistent about who OWNS the meeting recording so that they can decide who has access. Currently the first person who JOINS a meeting with automatic recording set becomes the owner of the recording since it is dropped into THEIR OneDrive.
Meeting Recordings should ALWAYS be owned by the meeting organizer and go into that person's drive
I can confirm that only attendees of a recent Teams meeting had access to the recording stored in the organisers OneDrive. It would be better if all the invitees were automatically given permission.
I agree with this post 100%. All invitees should have the option of recording the meeting and that recording should be available to everyone invited.
this is a big issue for my team right now. it would be amazing if this could be improved.

You can do this today by opting in for the new experience where meeting recordings are stored in SharePoint/OneDrive
Agree all members of a group, whether invitees to the presentation or not, need access to the recording.

The purpose of recording meetings are: 1) For attendees to review any material afterwards that have been discussed, if needed. 2) Most importantly, the meetings are recorded for individual who were not able to attend. its absolutely absurd that only attendees can view it. Kindly change this process to allow people who were not able to attend the meeting to view it at any time.
We need recordings available to team members who missed meetings or training. Also, we save sessions for future training. This was never an issue with skype

We need all invitee's to be able to listen to the recording regardless of whether they accepted the invite or not. Its strange that only the people that attend the meeting can listen/watch the recording - what's the point? they were in the meeting. Its the people that can't attend due to conflicts or other that should have auto access to it

I need a way for guests to view recorded meetings directly out of Sreams via a link. Something like you do with OneDrive when a guest can view or edit content based on the link.
I work for a training company and we use MS Teams as our online platform for virtual training. Having to manually go into MS Streams, find the video, download it, create a folder in OneDrive, upload it to OneDrive, then share the link with the students takes so much time and effort. Since each video is broken up into 4-hour segments we have at least two a day if we are only running one class. It's way too much! Why can't anyone who was part of the meeting or anyone, in general, be able to view it? Like why do they have to be part of our org, it makes zero sense! Your platform is for meetings, think about it... Meetings lots of times include folks from other companies so therefore they should be able to be recorded and viewed by whoever. Just allow access!
Please make this change ASAP!

Beside that we need also full meeting recording, or been able to share the recording with guest users are really bad :-(
This is much needed as it can be very tedious for a meeting owner to have to grant permission individually to those who were unable to attend the call - especially for larger calls where there may be 50+ people who did not attend.
I would also acknowledge that there may be scenarios where a meeting owner may not want permission granted by default to those who missed the meeting - but I would estimate that this scenario is in the minority and that we should have an easier way to manage the permissions to accommodate this.
Perhaps simple checkboxes within the Teams meeting options; If recorded, all meeting invitees can view the recording, Only invitees who attend the meeting can view the recording, etc.
Currently, someone who is invited to a Teams meeting but does not actually attend the meeting is not granted permission or access to view the meeting recording by default.
If someone were to share the Stream recording link to this person, they would still not be able to view the content.
In order to grant them access, the meeting owner needs to go to Stream, edit the video details and manually grant them permission to view the recording. This can only be done on an individual basis or by O365 group.
Meeting recordings are typically most needed by those who were invited to a meeting but were unable to attend it.
Meeting recordings should be accessible by all invitees by default - not just those who attended - or there should be an easier way to grant access to all invitees who did not actually attend.

The recorded meetings from Teams (scheduled or meet now) are hosted on Stream which currently does not allow for sharing with Guest accounts. I agree some Guest users may want to view a missed meeting but a scenario that would could be used more often, perhaps would be the sharing of quick how to "screen share" recordings used to clarify a topic in discussion. If a picture is worth a thousand words then a video could be worth millions.
Iam not able to record the meeting in teams app
Only the attendees of the meetings are able to view the recordings.
When we want to share the knowledge transfer videos with someone who have not attended , it is not possible currently .
Please make the recording capabilities similar to Webex recordings
