In 2018, Skype added a feature that dramatically improved the platform: call recording. 

Now with the click of a mouse you can record the audio from a call or video call session, preserving an interview for later review, making a meeting shareable with clients, or enshrining that hilarious moment you and your friends shared.

Skype call recording is quick and easy, and all participants are actively informed of the recording and are invited to save the recorded audio or video at the end. It’s still a good idea to inform people before you start recording Skype to avoid potential legal issues and interpersonal awkwardness.

To save the call once it’s finished, go to the chat and click the three dots next to the recording, and then “Save to ‘Downloads.'” If you don’t save the recording within 30 days, it will disappear.
