Microsoft has revealed that it has been working on a new call recording feature for Skype that it will be rolling out soon. The feature will also support third-party app integration, including the likes of Xsplit, Wirecast and Vmix.
Microsoft, in a blog post, mentioned that the new feature will be available to Mac and Windows 10 users. The feature will be integrated in the desktop Skype client within the Content Creator mode. It will allow users to import, record and edit recordings by using apps like Adobe Audition and Adobe Premiere Pro. Moreover, users will also be given a choice to select their preferred third party software that will support the integration.
“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,” Microsoft said. The new call recording feature will be unveiled this week in Las Vegas at the NAB show.

Besides the call recording feature, Skype will also be enabling live streaming option on Twitch and YouTube, while also giving users the ability to customize the look of the call. “Users can customize 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.
Now, a lot of you may wonder why Microsoft is integrating call recording and live streaming options on Skype. But from the look at it, Microsoft seems to be focusing on the new update with podcast creators, vloggers and streamers in mind. More details are expected when Microsoft roll out the update later this week.
