Skype recently added the video call recording feature. With this latest feature, the users can record any video call. Skype has made this update available for all the platforms.

Record Video Calls on Skype

The way Skype video call recording works is amazing. First of all, this is not going to be a secretive recording. All the parties involved in a video call will get to know whether the call was recorded or not. As soon as a call, that was being recorded, ends, the recording will appear in the chat box informing all the parties about it.

The video calls recorded over Skype can be downloaded offline as well. The calls primarily are stored on Skype’s cloud server. Skype will keep the recordings for around 30 days. If you wish to download the call within those 30 days, you will find it there.

With the introduction of Skype video call recording, there is no need to use the third-party call recording tools. The built-in call recorder works smoothly and up to the mark.
