Microsoft adds built-in call recording to Skype.
Polarity Technologies Ltd learned from CNET: Microsoft announced earlier this week that with the latest update to Skype version 8.0, the app now boasts built-in call recording capabilities. It’s available for Macs and mobile devices. According to Microsoft call recording will come to the Windows 10 Skype app in the coming weeks.
How to Record:
To start recording a Skype call, click or tap the + button and then hit Start Recording. A banner will appear at the top of every participant’s screen alerting them that the call is being recorded and by whom. Video call recordings include everyone’s video along with any screens shared during the call. Recordings are saved to the cloud and show up on your chat conversation, where they will remain for 30 days. To save a Skype recording beyond 30 days, you can save it locally.
How to Save & Share:
On a computer, open the recording, click the triple-dot button in the top right and select Save to Downloads. You can also right-click on the recording in your chat and then click Save to Downloads. On mobile, tap and hold the recording and then tap Save. The recording will be saved to your camera roll as an MP4 file. You can share a Skype recording by right-clicking it (or tap and hold on mobile) and then choosing Forward. Next, choose your Skype contacts and then hit Share.
