Your privacy matters! Clips are automatically saved in private mode until you choose to share them. Once shared, rest assured that your Clips are shielded by end-to-end encryption, ensuring that only you and your selected recipient can enjoy the magic.

Unfortunately, not yet. Skype Clips is your go-to for asynchronous messages, but who knows what the future holds?

Yes! Currently, Clips automatically expire after 30 days (as any other shared media in Skype), but we're actively working to allow you to retain them for as long as you desire or feel free to save them to your device.

Once it's deleted, it's gone. Make sure you're certain before hitting that delete button!

Currently, you can modify the title and description of your clip after sharing with your friends or saving it in Clips Gallery. However, re-editing of the clip recording itself is not available at the moment. We're actively working on improvements, so stay tuned for updates that might expand these editing capabilities!

Yes, indeed! Your Skype Clips undergo automatic transcription, converting spoken words to text for enhanced accessibility. However, factors like poor audio quality or background noise may impact their accuracy. If the transcription faces any challenges, you will receive a notification. We recommend reviewing the transcription before relying on it in cases of considering it as a sole source of information.
