Call Recording: How to Record Phone Calls on OnePlus, Samsung, Vivo, OPPO, Realme and Xiaomi Android Mobile Phones

You can record all calls, specific contact calls or just unknown numbers on Android. Here is how to make use of the call recording feature on Android.

A smartphone is called a “smart” phone because of the smart features it offers to the users. One such feature is the ability to record and store call recordings. Back when smartphones came out, we had to root the phone to record calls or even install a third-party app to record calls. Now that Android has evolved, most manufacturers have baked the feature into the phones itself. 

With many smartphone manufacturers using Google’s Phone app as their default Phone app as well, call recording on most of these phones are similar to use and enable. In India, the call recording feature is available to all users, however, if you are using this feature to record calls, the Phone app will make an announcement that the call is being recorded for both parties, as recording without consent is illegal in some countries.
