NO recording function on Android


Hi folks.

I am trying to record meeting on an android device, a Motorola G7, but I am not offered ANY recording facility.

I know you cannot record locally on a mobile device, but I am not offered a cloud option either.

When I open the 'more' tab, the options presented are as shown in the pics attached.

I am the host, and its on a free plan.

Any thoughts?
