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.
