Important Note for Android Users
If you clear the cache/data of the app before a meeting is uploaded to Dubber, there is no way to recover those meeting recordings, and the recording is erased permanently. If you manually delete the the .wav or .mp3 file of the recording from the internal storage of your your device before it is uploaded the the recording is erased permanently. It is your responsibility to make sure all uploads are complete before you clear any cache/data for the app or delete a file.

Why do my meetings pause automatically?
If an incoming or outgoing call occurs, your device requires the speakers and microphone, so the call takes priority over the meeting recorder. Other apps that require the speakers or microphone also take priority.
What happens if I terminate the application accidentally?
If the Dubber app terminates during a meeting recording, the recording is lost. There is no way to recover a meeting recording if it is terminated while a recording is active.
If the app terminates while a file is uploading, the file is saved on your device, and the Dubber app tries to re-upload the file as soon as it access access to the network.
What happens if I don’t have enough storage while I’m recording?
Meeting Recorder alerts you if it detects that storage is nearly full. The app asks you to complete the recording. If try to start a recording when your device's storage is already full, the app cannot start a recording.
