5 Applications for Recording Skype Sessions

5 Applications for Recording Skype Sessions

Skype is one of the widely-used applications for audio and video chatting. Over the past few years, it has proven to be one of the best software for personal and professional reasons.

Consultants, freelancers and podcasters are using Skype to give one-on-one consulting sessions along with recording them to repack and resell them as products or training sessions. To do this, they need to record audio in most cases but in some cases they record the video also and for this they use different applications.

If you are someone who wants to record Skype sessions for whatever reason, here is a list of top five applications you can use.

Pamela for Skype

Pamela for Skype is free application to record both audio and video of the Skype session. Pamela has the premium version that contains all the features. There is also a basic version, which is free to use. If you want to try out the premium version, it comes with 30-day free trial.


The basic version is limited to 15 minutes of video/audio recording whereas with premium version you can record unlimited recordings.

Pamela can automatically record calls and auto reply. You can also use the files in email. It is an ideal application for beginner podcasters and bloggers. The only limitations if you do not want to buy the premium service is that you cannot record more than 15 minutes of audio or video.

TalkHelper Call Recorder

TalkHelper is considered as the simplest Skype call recorder on the market as it allows bloggers to record and save the files easily on the computer and store them for future reference.

What is great about this application is that it gets activated automatically once you open Skype for calling. By just pressing the button you can easily record the call and play it on any player including your mobile phone.


Sometimes bloggers need to incorporate or upload sessions on their blogs. Therefore, this application is considered ideal due to low file size and ability to play on any of the players.


Evaer is a great application to record group calls and sessions. You can save up to 10-way group Skype calls.

This feature enables bloggers and podcasters to record large group sessions while at the same time listening to audio preview. There is the option to record audio as an MP3 file separate from the video file.

Amolto Call Recorder


Amolto gives you free and unlimited recording capability with the ability to screencast. It has auto start facility and with just one click of the mouse, you can start recording your Skype sessions easily.

Amolto is even recommended by Skype along with Pamela and TalkHelper. It’s free and easy to use, which means that even beginners will find this application easy to save the Skype sessions for later use.


CallNote recorder is another free recording software with the ability to record 8-way group calls. What is great about this Skype call recorder is the fact that it can send the recorded notes to your Evernote notebook and seamlessly integrate with your Evernote files and folders.

This is a good application, but it does have some limitations. For example, it may not help you with professional level recordings. You would need to use its professional or premium versions.


It is also to be noted that this software may slow down your PC, as it has a limited ability to record long calls and save them.

The applications listed above will work well for part-time or serious bloggers and podcasters who need to record Skype sessions for subsequent use and marketing to potential customers. Select the application that fits your situation and you’ll soon be on your way to recording great Skype sessions for personal and professional use.
