This is the Google Phone call recording

Are you in one of these regions and did Google dialer come pre-installed on your mobile? In this case you should be able to record calls very easily, from the dialer itself. The save option appears as one of the contextual buttons during a call. Note that if there are many buttons, it may go to the second screen.

The first time you try to record a call, the application reminds you that it is going to notify the caller that you are recording the callAnd it doesn’t do it in a particularly subtle way. When pressing the button, a voice announcement indicates that the call has started to be recorded, and will be heard by the other person. When the recording stops, another locution is heard.

Call recording can be activated manually or, in some cases, from the settings, in the Call Recording section, you can activate that all calls are automatically recorded. However, these settings seem to be active only in some regions.

Where can you record calls on a Samsung

Do you have a Samsung mobile that, therefore, does not come with the Google Phone app pre-installed, but with Samsung’s own dialer? The good news is that also has a call recorder and the bad news is that, again, it is only active in some regions.

Samsung’s call recording is available in a much more limited list of countries and regions than Google’s and the vast majority of which are Asian countries. These are the countries where it is available:

Bangladeshi

Egypt

India

Indonesia

Israel

Laos

Libya

Nepal

Sri Lanka

Thailand

Tunisia

Ukraine

Vietnam

This is Samsung call recording

Samsung’s native call recording is very similar to Google’s, integrating itself as one more button in the keypad context when a call has started. After pressing Engravethe recording begins without further explanation and, what is more interesting, without any indication, sound or speech being made.

Samsung’s call recorder shows very clearly that it is recording both from the call itself and from the notification, showing the recording time and the classic record callsign.

In the settings you can also activate the automatic recording of all calls, being able to differentiate between recording all, some numbers or some specific phone numbers. You can also choose, if you have a Micro SD, if the recording is going to be recorded on the internal memory or on the memory card.
