Although Microsoft Word offers the ability to record a meeting while taking notes, this option is not available to Chromebooks or other platforms where Microsoft Word is not available. That’s where Mic Note comes in.


Mic Note is available for macOS, Chrome, Windows, Linux, and Android. It allows you to take notes while simultaneously recording the audio of the meeting. The notes can then be used to transcribe the meeting, edit the audio, and be shared with others.

The free version is limited to 10 minute recordings, although the paid options are very reasonable ($14.99 for personal usage, $1.80 per year per person starting with 20 users).
