WhatsApp Call Recorder for PC or Mac

WhatsApp has never been more widely used than it is today. Users around the world appreciate the app for the speed of message delivery and good communication in audio and video conversations. The only limitation is the lack of a whatsapp video call recorder. Although there is no branded WhatsApp call recording app, you still have an easy way to save and share important conversations. No matter which version you use – iPhone, Android or desktop, there are a number of programs that will work with your phone, laptop or PC. Movavi Screen Recorder is one of the most interactive and fully featured apps available.

If you’re looking for short, simple instructions on how to record whatsapp video calls, check out the guide below. You’ll discover three approaches to video and audio recording – for PC, Android and iPhone.

To record a WhatsApp call on PC, Mac, Android or iPhone, follow these simple steps.

  • Step 1. Install the WhatsApp Call Recorder

    DownloadDownload the Movavi Screen Recorder installation file to access the WhatsApp Call recorder. Follow the onscreen instructions to install the program on your PC.

  • Step 2. Adjust the Recording Parameters

    Open WhatsApp on your computer and launch the Screen Recorder. Choose the recording tool and determine the size of area you want to capture.

    Check the System Audio and Microphone icons - they should be highlighted in green to ensure the participants’ voices will be recorded. If you have more than one input device, open the menu above the microphone icon and choose the appropriate device.

  • Step 3. Start Recording the Call

    Hitting the REC button launches the recording process after three seconds. If you do not want to miss the beginning of the conversation, be sure to select it before starting the video call. By clicking on the Pause, Stop and Cancel buttons, you can control the recording. Take care, though: if you press Cancel, your call will not be saved.

    The hotkeys are different for Windows and Mac. For Windows, F9 is Pause and F10 is Stop. If you have a Mac, the hotkeys are ⌥ ⌘ 1 and ⌥ ⌘ 2, respectively. After you finish recording, your video will be automatically saved in MKV format. Before saving, the Screen Recorder will show you a preview version so you can check it.

  • Step 4. Edit and Save the Record

    In the preview window, you can cut out unwanted parts of the conversation or shorten it. Use the Scissors icon to select the unwanted segment, then delete it by clicking the Trash can button.

    When you’re finished editing, hit Save As and change the format if needed. Enter the name of the video in the File Name field and choose a folder in the Save To field.

    Congratulations, your WhatsApp call has been captured and saved to your hard disk! You can do more editing later if you wish, make the recording a part of a movie or presentation, or share it with friends.
