How to Record Skype Calls in Two Handy Ways

Author by Michelle

Updated at July 11, 2022

Skype has already added a call recording feature to the application, you can use the function to record important meetings, special moments, etc. in a breeze. But this article has also found another efficient way to achieve this end with the same effect, and more than that, it's actually more powerful than the built-in recorder. The following are the tutorials of how to record Skype calls using these two recorders.

Part 1. How to Record Skype Calls with Its Built-in Recorder

How to Record on Skype

Step 1. Make sure you have joined a Skype to Skype call.

Step 2. Then tap "Start recording" on the second left at the bottom menu bar. Some users may find this feature in the ellipsis at the bottom right corner.

Tips: People in this call will be notified through a banner saying that you are recording the call. So you'd better get consent of others before doing so. Otherwise, legal issues may arise.

Step 3. End the recording by tapping "Stop recording" or by ending the call or leaving the group. The recording will be automatically sent to the chat where everyone in this call could see it.

Tips: The recording is stored in the cloud and won't take up any place on your local drive. And it will be available in your chat for 30 days.

Save the Recording

Step 4. In the chat where the recording has been posted, click on the three-dot on the top right corner of the video thumbnail to "Save to 'Downloads'" or select "Save as" to download it to another location.

Part 2. Recommended Independent Skype Call Recorder

The built-in Skype call recording feature has indeed saved us lots of time to find another program to do the task. But it also comes with a shortcoming - it can only record Skype to Skype calls. You still need a third-party tool to record other activities on your screen. So why not just choose a recorder that can handle both the Skype call recording and screen recording perfectly? Because I know just one recorder that could meet the requirements - WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro, which is more than a video converter but also integrates a handy screen recorder. Read on to see how to use this Skype video recorder below.
