How to Record Skype Calls on Windows, Android and IOS TechRadar

Skype was one of the main decisions of people all over the world. However, it has faced serious competition after facing an aggressive push of video calling features for its services like Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger. Microsoft has therefore kept rebuilding the Skype app for Windows 11/10 to keep it up to date with the same app on other devices. It has now brought the most anticipated feature to it Record Skype Calls. This new feature is now available on Skype and on all platforms including Windows 11/10, Android as well as iOS. Now let’s see how to get the most out of this feature.

Record Skype calls natively

Call recording is entirely cloud-based and is now available on the latest version of Skype and most platforms except Windows 10. Call recording is coming to Windows 10 with the latest version of Skype, which will be released in the coming weeks. Once you start recording, everyone on the call will be notified that the call is being recorded, so there are no surprises. When you’re on a video call, Skype will record the video of everyone involved and any screens shared during the call. After the call, you can save and share the recorded call for the next 30 days.

To record a Skype call on Windows 11/10 natively in the classic Skype W32 program, do the following:

  • During your Skype call, click the More menu
  • Choose Start Recording.


  • A notification lets everyone know the call is being recorded

This will launch a prompt at the top of the screen for all users of a call, letting them know the call is being recorded.


Now you can continue your call in the order given; and also disconnect it when you’re done.

Once done, the call recording will be automatically made available to your chat. It will be available for download for participants for the next 30 days, after which it will be automatically deleted.

To save this call recording, right click on the entry in your chat and click Save as. You will then be prompted to select a suitable location for your file.


You can also choose Save to Downloads to save it directly to your Downloads folder.

Second, you can also click Forward to forward it to one of your contacts outside of this chat.

On iOS and Android

To record Skype calls on iOS and Android devices, you don’t need to do much different from Windows 10.

First, make sure you’re running the latest version of the app on your device. If you use Skype Lite, this feature is not available there yet.

When you are in a Skype call you have to press the same + button and then press call recording to record the call.


This will re-send a notification to everyone on the call that the call is being recorded.


In the same way, the recording is now made available in chat on all devices where the user is logged in with the same account for 30 days.


Until then, they can either save it as an .MP4 file by long pressing on the chat entry and then pressing to protect or simply forward it to your other Skype contacts by tapping Forward.


This feature is really useful in many scenarios. You no longer need to use third-party Skype recording software. This native feature allows corporate meetings and interviews to be recorded. Second, Microsoft seems to be slowly bringing all Skype for Business exclusive features to Microsoft Teams or Skype. This will help them to push their services even more aggressively in the business. However, some of these features, including the ability to record Skype calls, continue to prove useful to consumers.
