SquadCast records all participants in a recording session locally in separate tracks and automatically uploads the files to the SquadCast cloud. Once you are done recording, the Host can download all audio files directly from SquadCast in wav and mp3 format.
We do not currently record video. We expect to have the option to record video later this year.
A session can have 4 people total. 1 Host + up to 3 Guests.
The latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Brave, & Edge all support SquadCast. We're working with Apple to add a critical component that is currently missing from Safari. We will make an announcement when available.
SquadCast currently works on Android devices using a mobile browser app. We're working with Apple to add a critical component that is currently missing from Safari, iOS, & iPadOS. We will make an announcement when available.
Video is always optional and can be blocked all together or toggled off in the session.
Guests do not need an account to join a recording session.
Headphones are not required, but we highly recommend them to eliminate the chance for echo. External mics are not needed, but recommended as well.
SquadCast records 44.1 kHz sample rate and 16-bit depth audio files in wav format. Also available in mp3 format
We recommend a network speed range of approximately 5-10 mbps up and down. A few things to help with a slower network speed are to disable video and/or hard wire connection instead of WiFi.
We do not recommend sharing your SquadCast account credentials with others, but it is your choice to do so. We are currently focused on adding network/team collaboration to SquadCast and expect to have it out later this year.
The number of participants in a recording session has no impact of the recording time purchased. For example, if 3 people record 1 hour together only 1 hour will be withdrawn from your account.
