Skype has been testing integrated call recording with preview users for some time, but it looks like the feature is now ready for primetime. <!--break-- The Skype team announced today that call recording is now rolling out across its Android, iOS, and desktop apps, allowing you to capture your calls with a tap.
"Call recording is completely cloud-based and is now available on the latest version of Skype and on most platforms, except Windows 10," Microsoft says. "Call recording is coming to Windows 10 with the latest version of Skype releasing in the coming weeks."
Getting started with call recording appears to be fairly simple. Once you've begun a call, you can press to "+" sign on desktop or mobile, then press "Start recording." Once the recording has started, a banner will pop up at the top of the call to alert the other participants that the call is being recorded.
After the call is over, the full recording is posted to your chat, where it will remain accessible for 30 days. If you want to hold on to it for longer, anyone involved in the recording can download it within that 30-day time period. Calls can also be forwarded to your other contacts.
Previously, you had to jump through some hoops to get Skype calls recorded, so it's good to see the feature is now integrated with the app itself. Note that this is only available with Skype version 8 and later; the classic Skype app for desktop (version 7) doesn't have native call recording capabilities. The Skype app for Windows 10 is also expected to pick up the feature "in the coming weeks."
