We’re excited to announce that a major feature for Video Recordings is now generally available:
- External Storage with AWS S3: Customers can configure the Recording service to push Recordings or Compositions directly to their AWS S3 Bucket of choice.
By default, the media capture pipeline with the Recordings service was stored in AWS S3 within the Twilio Cloud. Now, builders can request to turn on the external storage and instead store the media recording in the AWS S3 bucket designated by them. With this new media storage pipeline feature, the builders only need to call the new APIs to start the media capture and no longer need to worry about extra developments.

Using this new feature, you now have the flexibility to record exactly what you want, all while meeting your specific privacy and compliance needs.
Whether it's recording only what your support agent says to customers, or what your salesperson says to prospects — the choice is now yours.

By default, Flex stores recordings in a Twilio-owned Amazon S3 bucket. Some customers may have security requirements that require recordings to be stored in a location which they control.

First things first. The easiest way to enable recordings in Flex is to enable WFO first. Enabling WFO requires you to select a Flex Billing plan. Once WFO is enabled, in the Twilio Console, go to Flex -> WFO or just click here. Make sure that Call Recording is turned on:
