Screen recording permissions and UI updates





We've made a few changes recently to our screen recording solution.

Now the recorder will first ask permission to use the microphone and then ask permission to record the screen. It used to be the other way around, which caused issues when choosing to record a tab.

Given the fact that recording the screen is a lot more privacy intrusive than recording with a webcam and can pose a security risk, best practices dictate to make sure that the user is the one asking the screen to be recorded and not a malicious actor.

To this extent, we've added an extra step needed to be taken after choosing the [Record Screen] option.


The [Select screen for capture] is no longer a simple text, but a button that needs to be clicked in order to select the window/screen you wish to capture and ask for permission for doing so.
