Skype, the most popular and the oldest social networking platform for video calls has reportedly introduced the most awaited call recording feature on its platform.
Skype has always been the communication tool of choice for millions but it has always lacked a basic feature that many of those millions had requested i.e call recording. Well, the company has finally come up with the feature and recording has now been launched on Skype on both desktop and mobile.
However, this feature is available only in the latest version of the app on every platform except Windows 10. But it is expected to be introduced on that in the coming few weeks.
To record a call on Skype, you just need to be on a call and press the plus sign on the lower right and then select “Start recording.” The people you are talking with will be notified about this through a little banner announcing the call is being recorded.
When the call ends, the recorded video and audio are stored online as an MP4 for up to 30 days, during which time you and anyone who was on the call can save it locally or share a link to it.
It doesn’t seem like there’s a way to record only audio, which is a bit annoying. A call with 3 people on video can get big fast. Hopefully they’ll address that in an update.
People since a long time have been using various other methods and third party apps to record Skype calls but now with this move, the usage of Skype is surely going to increase to a good extent.
