Google decided permanently remove the APIs that allow third-party apps to record calls on Android

Google takes another step by increasing security for Android smartphone users, and it has decided to permanently remove the APIs that allow third-party apps to record calls on Android. This will render all third-party apps to record calls available on the Play Store unusable. This will come into force on May 11 next.

However, since the beginning of time on Android smartphones, we have seen different options for recording voice calls. These are available through various Android customizations from other manufacturers. As we all know, Google has given the feature of recording voice calls in its own stock dailer and has kept the feature of call announcement for privacy, which many people do not like.

Currently, call recording is available in OPPO’s ColorOS with some versions of Xiaomi’s MIUI and for Google’s Pixel sold in specific geographies. The availability of this facility has always been ballerina due to local privacy regulations. The turning point will come on May 11.

In other words, it will no longer be possible to record calls on Android smartphones unless the feature is pre-loaded on the device.
