How to Record a Voice or Video Call You can start recording while on a call.

The banner also recommends verbally telling people about the recording, just for legal reasons. Some US states are “one-party consent” states, which means only one person on the call (you) has to know the recording is happening. Other states are “two-party consent” states, which means everyone on the call needs to know it’s being recorded. Other people on the call will see a banner saying that you, specifically, are recording the call.

Your call recording happens “in the cloud” and is stored on Skype’s servers. It appears in your Skype chat after finishing the call, and everyone on the call can view, save, or share it. The recording is only available for 30 days and is removed from Skype’s servers after that. How to Save Your Call Recording While the recording is only available on Skype’s servers for 30 days, you can download it and keep it for as long as you want. Skype downloads recordings as MP4 files. In Skype for desktop, hover over the video in the chat and then click the “More options” menu button to the right of the thumbnail. Click “Save As” to download it to a location of your choice on your computer.

In Skype for Android, iPhone, or iPad, long-press the call recording in your chat. Tap “Save” when the menu appears to save a copy of the video to your device. You can also share the call recording with other Skype users by forwarding it.

Just click or tap the “Forward” option in the menu on desktop or mobile. To record a call without anyone else on it knowing, you’ll still need third-party software that can either. Note that this may be illegal depending on where you and the other person are located. For example, if you’re in a one-party consent state but the other person is in a two-party consent state, you can’t legally record them without their knowledge.
