How Do I Record a Conversation? Solved.

by Christine Smith • 2024-01-11 10:27:22 • Proven solutions

Have you ever hosted an online conference meeting before? It is a convenient way of having important discussions at a distance, and it provides the opportunity for a lot of flexibility in your work, including the ability to record your conversations. Yes, it is indeed possible, and we are going to show you all the different ways to go about it, whether it be on your Windows, Mac, Android, or iOS device.

Part 1. Best Way to Record a Conversation on PC

Whether you’re using a Mac or Windows PC, Wondershare UniConverter is the best app for recording a conversation. It works with all popular VoIP apps, including Skype, Zoom, Hangout, WhatsApp, etc. This app lets users capture desktop conversations in full screen or choose a specific capture area. To make it juicier, users can also add their own voice narrations and webcams to make the conversation more engaging to watch. Moreover, you can convert and edit the recorded conversation.

Security Verified. 5,481,347 people have downloaded it.

Below are the steps to record a conversation with Wondershare UniConverter:

Step 1Launch the Screen Recorder.

Install and run the software on your PC, then tap Screen Recorder. Now hit the Camcorder button to open the conversation recorder tool.

Launch the Screen Recorder

Step 2Choose a capture area.

Now launch the VoIP app you wish to record, then drag the recording frame to fit a capture area on the app. Alternatively, open the Recording Mode drop-down menu, then choose Full Screen or Custom. With the Custom mode, users can enter the frame dimensions, then tap Lock Aspect Ratio.

Choose a capture area

Step 3Configure the recording preferences.

To ensure that you record all sound from the conversation app, choose a device under the System Audio menu. After that, proceed to select a device for adding your voice narrations under the Microphone menu. You can even record a video of yourself by choosing a Facecam under the Webcam section.

Choose a device

Meantime, open the Advanced Settings menu, then set the output frame rate, quality, format, recording timer, and folder path. This app lets you export the conversation to MP4, AVI, or FLV.


Step 4Start recording the video.

Launch the meeting or conversation, then preview the capture area once more. If everything looks polished, tap REC to begin recording a conversation on Mac/Win. Interestingly, you can add demonstrations using texts, shapes, lines, arrows, and so on. To do that, launch the taskbar, then click the Annotation icon. Finally, press Stop to complete the recording process.

Start recording the video

Part 2. How to Record a Conversation on Mac

Here is our next method of recording a conversation on Mac this time. It is assumed that you are going to be holding the conversation on Skype, and we will be focusing on the software's built-in conversation recording function, which is available only in the Mac and iOS versions of Skype.

Of course, this won't be able to help you if you do decide to hold your conversation outside of Skype, but if that's the case since the Wondershare UniConverter is available on both Windows and Mac, we would recommend using it again for this purpose.

Use the Built-in Recording Function

Recording a conversation with the Mac version of Skype is quite simple. You will need to have a conversation going before doing this, but once started, it's as simple as selecting the options menu in the bottom right-hand corner of the UI and then selecting the Start Recording option.

That's it. After the conversation ends, you will be able to save the recording locally to your desktop for future review.

Part 3. How to Record a Conversation on iPhone

With this iPhone method, we strayed off online conversation apps like Skype, seeing as it's pretty much the same as the method we introduced in the Mac version. But we will still teach you how to record an actual phone call with TapeACall. It's an audio recorder only, so if you decide to hold a FaceTime conversation, it won't record video as the UniConverter does. However, it's still a pretty good way of recording and storing your conversations with permission from the other party, of course.

Step 1. Install the iOS App

TapeACall is a third-party app that is available for download in the Apple App Store. Get it there if you are interested in using it for yourself.

install app

Step 2. Provide Account Details

Unfortunately, it won't start working immediately. You will need to set it up first. So, once the app has been installed, launch it and provide all the necessary account details asked for, like your Phone Number.

log into the account

Step 3. Record a Call

Once you are done setting things up, you can now begin recording your calls. TapeACall will appear as a red floating icon highlighted in the image below over your phone calls. Simply click it to start recording.

Step 4. Share a Recording

Once a call is complete, the recording will be stored in the TapeACall app. Open it up to access a record and click the Share icon to share a specific recording.

You can share it as a downloadable URL, or you can use one of the other sharing options to store your recording in one of the popular online Cloud storage platforms like Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.

Part 4. How to Record a Conversation on Android

There is no way of recording a conversation on Android directly from the Phone app, either. Instead, you will have to use a third-party tool like Google Voice to record incoming calls. Fortunately, this seems simple enough, as we'll be showing you in the tutorial below. Google Voice will also automatically save recorded calls on your cloud to be exported or listened to by you after the fact.

Step 1. Adjust Google Voice Settings

Once you have the Google Voice app installed, launch the app and open up the menu so that you can access the Settings menu.

adjust Google Voice settings

Step 2. Turn on Incoming Call Recording

In the Google Voice Settings page, locate and enable the Incoming Call Options. It is what will automatically record calls of any linked device.

There is plenty of different opportunities available out there for establishing secure communications with someone else. And as the world metaphorically grows smaller, methods of recording those communications become more prolific. Now that you know that you can use tools like the Wondershare UniConverter try it out today and save yourself the hassle of having to strain yourself to remember fleeting conversations held over the phone or on the Internet.
