Discord is an online platform that enables its users to chat, stream and talk to each other during gaming. While the platform is filled with gaming-supported features, you probably want to record your streams from time to time. This entails that there should be an easy option for Discord to record the in-server calls as well.

In this article, we’re going to break down how to record discord calls for both video and audio cases. Furthermore, we’ve filtered the options down to provide the best tutorials for your gaming and working needs. With that said, let’s get started.

How To Initiate And Record Audio Calls On Discord 

Recording calls is a native option that is present in almost every online communication software. It allows the user to record shared videos of the call members including any shared screens and audio. However, Discord does not support a native call recorder, so you would have to go for a third-party solution instead.

That being said, the following steps can provide you with a thorough understanding of how to initiate and record calls on Discord:

  1. Head to the official website of the Craig Bot and press the Invite Craig To Your Discord Server button. You will be sent to a Discord login page.

  2. Fill in your account credentials and press the Login button. Alternatively, you can open the QR code reader from Discord mobile and use that to log in.

  3. Click on the drop-down box and select the server you want the bot to reside in. It’s worth noting that the audio recording option will only be available on that specific server.

  4. Check the I am Human box and complete the captcha.
  5. Once done, close the window and open Discord. Head to the selected server to meet the Craig bot.
  6. Finally, you can type in the following commands during an ongoing call to record the audio:

CommandAction Performed
/joinCraig will join the voice channel of the author of this message and will start recording.
/join channel: {channel name}Craig will join the channel name specified in place of {channel name} and will begin recording.
/leaveCraig will leave the joined channel while stopping the recording. This command won’t work if Craig has not joined a channel.

How To Record Video Calls On Discord – [Windows & Mac]

Craig is an easy-to-use bot, but it does not come with built-in video recording support. That being said, you will have to record your entire screen in order for video recording to work. Therefore, the recording quality will vary accordingly with your internet connection.

With that said, we will be using OBS Studio to record videos for Discord. Without further ado, let’s get started:

  1. Head to the OBS Project website and download the application.
  2. Once the software has been downloaded, open the OBS and click on the ‘+’ icon under the sources to choose the Audio Output Capture.
  3. Choose your default device and proceed.
  4. Once done, look at the bottom left of the application to locate the Start Recording button. Click on it and let the recording begin!

How To Record Discord Video Calls On Android And IOS

Similar to Windows and IOS, you will be taking aid from external applications. The process will differ according to the operating system. Therefore, we’ve mentioned the how-tos for both Android and IOS separately.

Recording Calls On Android

For this tutorial, we will be using ADV screen recorder as it has a leading reputation of being one of the best free-to-use screen recording software. With that said, here is how to download it:

  1. Download ADV Screen recorder from the Google Play Store.
  2. Simply open the application and press the record button to start recording your screen during a discord call.

You get the option to customize your recording options from the application’s settings. Therefore, we recommend you explore the rest by yourselves for a more personalized customization.

Recording Calls On IOS

Unlike Android, the IOS operating system comes with a built in screen recorder that can be used to record Discord calls. However, accessing it is rather arduous. Therefore, here are all the steps you need to record calls on IOS:

  1. Open the Settings and head to Control Center.
  2. From there, tap the ‘+’ icon next to Screen Recording.
  3. Tap the the Screen Recording button button and wait for three seconds for the screen tos tart recording. 
  4. Once you’re done with your call, simply head back to the Control Center and tap the the Selected Screen Recording buttonicon to stop recording.

That being said, your screen recordings will be saved in the Photos application. Therefore, we recommend you spare the required storage for the file to save locally.

Are Discord Video Calls Monitored?

In order for the voice service to work, the data has to pass through Discord’s servers. The calls are not end-to-end encrypted. Therefore, it is possible for the messages to be intercepted. However, Discord does not officially record anything, so your data is rather safe.

Nonetheless, Discord has the ability to log any IP address it comes in contact with. Therefore, it is quite possible for the messages and calls to be traced back to a user. 

Wrapping Up

Ultimately, it is quite possible to record audio and video calls on Discord using third-party software. However, the aspect of calling on the platform should only be performed if the information is non-sensitive and can be risked getting leaked.
