Record audio in Evernote

You can record and store an audio recording directly into Evernote. With audio recordings you can record and recall the details of:

  • A meeting with colleagues
  • A class lecture
  • Memories of a family member's musical recital
  • An important speech

Record audio in a note

  • Mac and Windows

    1. Create a new note or open an existing note.
    2. Click the microphone button from the formatting bar. You may need to click the double arrows at the end of the toolbar to reveal more options.
    3. Click Record to start recording. You can type and record at the same time, but if you leave that note the recording will stop and save. A red dot will appear on the Evernote menu bar icon to indicate that a note is currently recording.
    4. When you’re done, click Save to stop recording and save the audio to your note.

    Note: This feature is not yet available in the new Evernote for Mac or new Evernote for Windows.

Note: Maximum recording length is limited by the total size of the note. Basic customers can record up to 25MB per note, Plus customers can record up to 50MB per note, and Premium customers can record up to 200MB per note. The size of an audio recording will vary depending on the content of your recording and your device.

Tips

  • Warning: If your audio recording surpasses the total note size limit, your note will not sync to Evernote.
  • You can type inside Evernote as audio is recording.
  • If you have a pre-recorded audio file, you can drag the file right into Evernote to create a new note or drop it into an existing note (Mac and Windows only).
  • If you want full control over the audio file size or recording quality, you might want to record on a different program to adjust and edit, and then attach it to a note.
