Simple Audio Recorder

Description from extension meta

The extension records your voice and saves the recordings as an audio file

Image from store Simple Audio Recorder
Description from store The name of the extension describes its functionality quite precisely. It's dead simple yet powerful and useful. Click on the mic icon that lives beside the address bar. After that recording of your voice will begin and you will see a small timer that informs you about elapsed time. Click it one more time - the recording will stop and there will be a prompt that suggests you to save your recordings as an audio file. That's it! Enjoy your mono WAV file. Important note. Please don't miss a small popup which you will see after successful installation. The popup will ask you to allow this extension to use your microphone. Click "Allow" and then click the "Turn on" button on the Welcome page

  • (2019-06-08) メイアMeia: tried on windows os, it can really record my voice! but the sound is small unless you shout...it can be save by auto download. I hope it can capture smaller sound. Will try it again on chrome os.
  • (2019-04-03) Justin Landis: I have recently started using this extension. It works perfectly on my Chromebook (Asus C302). It is fast, light and reliable. Thank you.
  • (2019-03-22) Peyton Matik: I can not access anything I have recorded as it does not give me an option to save anything. This is more than "just a little frustrating" when as soon as I end the recording, it is immediately deleted...
  • (2018-12-24) NOUIBAT ALI ZWAWI: سيء جدا
  • (2018-11-30) Kate Martin: Had to create a profile just to relay my disgust with this recorder. Crashes constantly. If you have a recording more than a few minutes long, it is guaranteed to crash and lose the recording entirely. The only way I'd trust it, is if you only need a few seconds recorded. It completely lost several work calls for me.
  • (2018-11-10) Lo羅文蔚: work great
  • (2018-10-11) soup: Would be great if it didn't keep on popping open in a new tab, requesting access to my microphone, every twenty seconds. I tried to accept the request, I tried to deny the request, and even though each option responded as if it went through, the tab kept on opening. They need to fix this.
  • (2018-09-03) PKMN Redw00d: It wouldn't even open for me. It was just aweful.
  • (2018-08-04) Jaydon Armah-Godwin: This is extremely good.
  • (2018-05-31) Tobu Rae: There was NO popup prompting where to save or retrieve the file from after recording was completed. Recording has no use to me if I cannot retrieve or save the file afterwards, completely useless. (And all options for popups and other permissions were double checked. This should have worked.)
  • (2018-05-21) Julian Cisneros: Does not download 10 minutes plus at least.
  • (2018-05-15) Alexandre Kokushkin: useless, I can't save anything
  • (2018-04-29) Mauro Bonilla: Graicas
  • (2018-04-15) Lohann Nagel: My recording did not save. It was a very important recording - now all is lost
  • (2018-04-14) Leff Jew: Works fine the first time then suddenly loses 20 minutes of audio worth 20% of my final grade. Seriously? Can you not get a simple audio recorder correct? Absolutely do not recommend.
  • (2018-04-13) Manny Lunoff: I can't get it to play any recordings that I'm supposedly making
  • (2018-04-01) Mika Haglund: When I go to click to record it has the time. When I click on it again to stop recording it stops it doesn't come up like I'm going to save it. It confuses me.
  • (2018-02-18) Daisy Lucas: didnt work
  • (2018-02-14) ITRealizer CablingNY: Did exactly what promised.
  • (2018-02-06) JT: If I didn't have to remove it from Chrome and reinstall it every time I want to use it, it would get five stars. The concept is great, the execution is truly lacking.
  • (2018-01-17) Agus Prabowo: Nice..
  • (2018-01-06) Filipe Borges: It`s simple but works very well. This extension is very easy to use.
  • (2017-10-20) Rebecca Graebner: Extension worked once, right after adding it, but hasn't worked since. Wanted to use this in an educational setting. Made sure to enable the microphone, still does not work.
  • (2017-10-18) Angus Mudge: doesnt work

    Simple, amazing app. Other users have commented - when recordings get too long for memory to buffer, it crashes. Can you tell us where to recover that blob file from? I'm on a chromebook, but advice for any OS would be useful to know. Thanks Sergey!

    I was recording a conversation and the app crashed. Is there anyway to recover what was recorded if it was not downloaded (by clicking the microphone a second time)? Others have asked about recovering audio files and I have seen no replies to these queries.
  • (2018-10-11, v:0.2.4) music or choir
