The process is similar to both desktop and mobile. On both desktop and mobile, a banner appears in your Skype screen letting everyone know you’ve started recording the call.
“After the call, the recording is finalized and then posted to your chat where it is available for 30 days.
You and everyone on the call can save the recording locally or share the recording to your contacts any time during the 30 days,” the company said in a statement. To save a call on desktop, users can go to chat and click “More options”, and then select “Save to Downloads” to save to the downloads folder.
