No, all sides of the conversation will be in one track in the file in your library.

Is there a particular browser we should use while recording?

The call recorder has been optimized to work with Chrome for the best results.

There is no limit on the length of the calls you can record as long as you stay within the 10-hour recording per month fair use policy.

You can have up to 9 guests with you, for a total of 10 people on the call at the same time.

Does the link change for each call?

Do I need to stay on the browser page when I am recording in my "studio"?

Your recording is unlimited but you should check out our Terms and Conditions for what we deem as fair use as this applies to recording.
