How is the audio recorder different from AI voiceovers?

The audio recorder lets you record your own voice to add to your videos instead of using AI text to speech technology to create a voiceover.

The audio recorder uses your device microphone or external mic of your choice so you can record your own professional voiceover.

How to use the voice recorder

Step 1. Click on the record & create tab on the toolbar

To locate the audio recorder, click on the record & create tab on the toolbar, then click on the audio option.
