Microsoft's Skype team has announced that it has started rolling out call recording across its Android, iOS and desktop apps. After you click that option you need to select "start recording".

As of now, the feature is available on all Skype versions except for Windows 10 where it is expected to be available in a few weeks time. Everyone in the call will get a warning that you flipped on the recording feature, which will capture audio as well as any videos (or shared screens) during the call. There are several mobile and PC apps dedicated to video calling - from Google's Hangout and Duo to Apple's Facetime. You will get a copy of the record as soon as you end a call, as it will be posted to your chat, and it will remain accessible from there for the next 30 days. The call recording will be available for download and share with other Skype contacts for 30 days. After going through several changes in its design and functionality, the Microsoft owned platform has finally chose to include an option that was requested by most of its 5 million users worldwide - the option to record video calls.
