Skype adds new feature for recording video calls

08.04.18

Microsoft has developed a new mode “Skype for Content Creators” will allow desktop users to place and record calls using Skype desktop software, which can either be streamed live or imported into other apps for further editing before posting. This will allow digital broadcasters, streamers, and vloggers to record videos, podcasts and live streaming calls without having to invest in expensive studio equipment.  The feature will work best for those who record video chats with other remote guests – like for a weekly call-in show – but it can also work for calls that are live streamed to other platforms, like Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube.

Skype alternatives are: ooVoo, Facetime, Google Voice, Google Hangouts, Tango, Vonage, Viber, Vonage
