Windows 10 and Mac users will be able to record calls if they switch their desktop Skype client over to the "Content Creator" mode to place, record, import and edit recordings using apps such as Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Audition, a Skype blog post said on 6 April.

Users are also given the choice to pick third-party software they prefer to use and Skype will support the integration.

Along with the new call record feature, Skype will also allow live-streaming a call on your YouTube channel or Twitch stream allowing the users to customise the look and feel of the call.

"Users can customise the look and feel of the call so they can be part of a live show ready for streaming to audiences of all sizes," the blog post added.

Skype is going to debut the new recording integration next week at the NAB show in Las Vegas.

"There's no need for additional recording or screen capture solutions. Skype will provide clean feeds of all group video call participants to your choice of NDI-enabled software," it added.
