Integrations review

For example, I chose Microsoft Teams, and the app joined my meeting as a participant and took notes automatically.


The AI tool can transcribe your meeting within a few minutes. For example, I was able to record a one-hour meeting and transcribe it in 4 minutes and 45 seconds.

However, the transcription wasn’t 100% accurate – I would say about 90% was correct. You only need to edit it or use text editors and grammar checkers like Grammarly or Quilbot if you need to.

To transcribe a meeting on Fireflies, choose one of the options below:

  • Schedule a meeting
  • Add to a live meeting
  • Upload a recorded meeting audio or video file
