Cloud recording is auto- enabled for its paid users. If you want to enable auto cloud recording, one can go to Account Settings, navigate to Automatic Recording section and verify the cloud option is turned on or enabled on the Recording tab,. If the setting is turned off or disabled, click the Status toggle to enable it.
