Image 1: Skype: how to record your calls?

You do meetings on Skype but you do not have time to write everything down? Know that you have the ability to record all your audio or video calls via this platform.

Registering your Skype call allows you to watch it or listen to it again at any time. Better: it is possible to record a video or audio podcast with remote speakers.

To do this first, make sure you download the latest version of Skype. During installation, Skype will ask you to confirm whether you want to record your conversation or not, without asking for permission from the other party. We advise you to always ask the permission of your interlocutor before recording.

There are five easy steps to easily activate and listen to your Skype recordings.

Step 1: Make a call (audio or video) with your Skype contact (s).

Step 2: Click on the “+” icon in the lower right corner and select “Start Recording”. A red dot and a message will appear at the top of the window to remind you that the recording is in progress and that you must inform the other party that you are recording.

Step 3: When the call is finished, hang up or press the “+” icon again and select “Stop recording”. The recording will then be processed.

Step 4: To replay the recording, go to the chat window and click on the “Other options” icon associated with your call. Warning: the backup is temporary, you will have one month from the end of the call to save it.

Step 5: Choose the “Save for Downloads” option. Your conversation is saved on your computer, in the Downloads file.

Note that the recording function built into the Skype application saves the video and audio of all participants in the same file.
