Recording a Skype call is as easy as selecting a recording, but you need to make sure everyone knows and agrees to the recording.

Don’t worry, Skype makes it easy to respect everyone’s privacy. Before a Skype call is recorded, Skype notifies everyone that the call is being recorded.

This feature is available in Skype version 8.0 and applies to desktop, web and mobile versions.

How to record Skype calls

Before you can record a Skype call, you must make an HD video call or call someone else.

After you establish a connection, you can start recording a phone call. Start recording a conversation by selecting Additional options (plus sign) > Start recording .

When the recording begins, Skype displays a banner notifying everyone of the conversation that they are being recorded. During a video call, all videos and shared desktops are also recorded.

When you’re done recording, select Stop recording . The recording is saved in the Skype chat panel.

Did you forget to stop recording? No problem. When the call ends, Skype stops recording. To find a recording, select “Chats” and select the conversation that was recorded.

You and other participants in the call can view the recording, save the file to your computers, and share it with others. These recordings are stored in the cloud as MP4 files for 30 days.

Save Recorded Skype Call

Your recorded Skype call will be stored in the cloud for 30 days. After that, it will be removed from your Skype account. Before these 30 days are up, you can download the recorded Skype call.

To download the recording to your computer or elsewhere, open Chats and select a conversation. For the item you want to save, select extra options > Save to downloads to save the file in your download folder. Or choose Save as to save the file elsewhere.

On a mobile device, press and hold an item, then tap Save to save it to your device’s camera list.

Share recorded Skype call

To share a recording, open the Skype Chats panel and select the conversation that was recorded. For the post you want to share, select extra options > forward . On a mobile device, press and hold a recorded call and tap forward .

In the “Forward message” field, enter a message and enter the people you want to send the message to. You can also select people from the list.

Select Finished when you’re done. On a mobile device, press send .

Use a third party call recording app

If you are using an older version of Skype, you may not be able to record phone calls and video conferences. In these cases, use a third-party app to do the work for you.

There are several applications that work with Skype version 7 and record calls. One such application is MP3 Skype Recorder. MP3 Skype Recorder is free for personal, non-commercial use.
