Android devices don't have the built-in call recording feature. But with the help of the apps, you can record calls on Android.
In this post, we will see the "Automatic Call Recorder" app which helps us to automatically record incoming and outgoing calls on Android with better quality.
This app is available in free and pro versions. Pick the one as per your wish. I’m using free version in this post. Here are the Play Store download links:
I recommend you to try the free version before purchasing the pro version. Let's get started.
Record Calls on Android
Recording call without the consent of all the parties involved in the conversation is not legal in some countries. So, make sure call recording is legal in your country before proceeding.
- Open the app and choose the theme.
- In the next screen, you have the option to setup cloud. If you setup the cloud, the call recordings will be saved to the cloud [Google Drive or Dropbox].
- Now, you can see two tabs:
Inbox tab – by default, the "Automatic Call Recorder" app records all the calls automatically and you can see them here.
Saved tab – you can see the recordings which you were saved.
The following are the steps to save a call recording:
- In the Inbox tab, tap a call recording which you want to save.
- Select "Save" option.
That’s it. The recording gets saved and you can see it under the "Saved" tab and in the cloud.
In settings, you can find many options. Let me explain the important settings.
Record calls – By default, this option is turned on and all the call gets recorded automatically. If you don’t want this feature, you can turn off this option.
Tap "Recording" option. Under the "Audio" section, you have the option to select the Audio source and format. Currently, there are 5 formats available.
- AAC 2
Choose the one as per your wish.
Tap Filters and you can see the Inbox size option. The default Inbox size is 100.
You can change it as per your need. When the recordings exceed the inbox size, the old recording gets overwritten.
Also, you can set which contacts to record and which contacts to ignore.
There are many options in the Settings such as recording path, Bluetooth, and so on. Configure them as per your need.
If you have a rooted Android device, then you can use the Xposed modules for this task.
If you are new to Xposed, then you can check it out this complete guide to the Xposed framework.
The following are the modules which help us to record calls. It is important to note that some of the modules are device specific.
So, I recommend you to read the documentation before installing the module.
