Play and record audio files

Whether it's meeting notes, podcast episodes, or music, audio components provide a simple way to play and record audio files in your app.

There are two types of audio components:

  1. Audio, which plays audio

  2. Audio Recorder, which records audio

Adding and configuring the Audio components

  1. Select the plus (+) icon in the Components panel on the left side of the Layout Editor.

  2. Locate Content and select Audio or Audio Recorder.

  3. If it's an Audio component, from the configuration panel select the corresponding column for the data field where your audio files are stored, or choose Custom to enter a link to an audio file.

    • The audio file's URL must have an audio file extension, such as .wav, .mp3, or .m4a, and be publicly accessible.

  4. If it's an Audio Recorder component, from the configuration panel select the appropriate column in the Save To field where you'd like to store the recorded audio file.
