Creating Meeting Summaries Using a Bot

Taking notes during meetings is tedious work that leaves the note taker disengaged from the conversation. And, if you weren't in the meeting good luck trying to catch up on what you missed.

With twine Ambient's AI-powered meeting summary feature everyone on and off the call gets easy access to the meeting summary without taking notes.

We provide support for meeting summaries in Zoom, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams using meeting bots.

Using a meeting bot is easy, we provide you with three options on how to get started.

Option 1: Provide Us With a Meeting Link

If you have an existing or soon-to-be-created meeting, you can provide us with the meeting link. This gives our meeting bot a location to join.


  1. Copy and paste a Zoom, Meet, or Teams meeting URL into this box in Ambient

  2. Click "Invite" and we'll send a bot to join that meeting

  3. Come back to Ambient for status updates on your bot. It can take a few moments for the bot to join!

Option 2: Use Our Zoom App (link to download)

Zoom is a popular video conference app; our easy-to-install plugin lets you summon our meeting bot quickly and easily. After downloading the plugin, you'll be able to use it for every meeting you run.


  1. Install our Zoom App

  2. Open our Zoom App in a meeting you host (see additional help article)

  3. Hit the red Record button

  4. A bot will join - allow it into your meeting and grant it permissions

    1. If you're unsure about your Local Recording permission, see this article

Option 3: Connect Your Google Calendar and Configure Automatic Recording Preferences

If you are already using Google Calendar for syncing your meeting agenda and details, you can connect this to our meeting bot. This allows us to automatically join and create summaries of every meeting you've scheduled via Google Calendar.


  1. Click "Sign in with Google" and select the same account you used for Ambient

  2. Choose from our auto-join preferences

    1. Based on your selection we will send a bot to schedule calendar events that contain a meeting link
