As more and more people are turning into content creators and the popularity of this niche increases, so does the need for good software. Skype, being one of the most used software by podcasters and the like, is stepping its game too.

Microsoft is planning to introduce a new “Skype for Content Creators” mode for its desktop app and the feature is now in “preview”. This is the term for Microsoft’s software that are currently being tested before rolling out to the public.

In a blog post, the company explains how this new feature could benefit content creators.

Digital broadcasters, streamers, and vloggers can now record videos, podcasts and live streaming calls “without having to invest in expensive studio equipment”. If you own a Windows 10 PC or a Mac, you’re good to go.

The mode can be used to place and record calls directly in NDI-enabled software like Wirecast, Xsplit, or Vmix.

The recorded video can also be imported to other software for calls that are not being streamed live. This includes being able to edit further in softwares like Adobe’s Premier Pro or Audition.

Skype for Content Creators is rolling out summer of this year. Those who are attending the NAB conference in Las Vegas next week will also get a preview.
