Hi Asjad Khan.

 

If you want to record your Skype conversation you will need to use third party software. I suggest you to download and install Open Broadcaster Software.

Get a Windows PC instead :-)

 

Recording on a Mac has never been available, and I've not come across any road-map items that says it will be in the future either.

+1. Definitely needed when using Macs in a mixed environment with other PC and Microsoft Hub devices.
I have not seen this in the Fast Insider builds - please point me in the direction where SFB (on prem) and Outlook clients exist that support delegation.
The feature is available in the Outlook Insiders. It will be available soon.
