Google Phone app may be adding support for call recording

Google Phone app could soon offer call recording option

More specifically, Google added a new icon, layout and other resources alongside a new in-call button to initiate a call recording which was revealed through several strings of code.

XDA-Developers today reported that references to call recording feature was found in the version 43.0.289191107 of the Google Phone app rolled out for Pixel devices today. Call recording hasn't been possible on stock Android versions without rooting since Android 8 Oreo.

Call recording on Android phones has relied on manufacturers rather than Google due to a lack of an official recording API for the mobile OS. The price cut automatically applies during the checkout process too, but keep in mind the aforementioned 200 bucks will be charged to your Google Pay account if you fail to meet the company's very simple and straightforward requirements. Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has also started pre-installing Google Phone app on its phones for the European market. Hopefully, if you are running a compatible device, you should see this functionality soon.


That being said, it's important to point out the search giant's latest high-end smartphones are still available at their regular prices at the time of this writing from the official U.S. online Google Store. And even if Google does implement it, we aren't sure if it would be limited to certain devices or not. It is possible that the feature could be intended only for Xiaomi smartphones sold in Europe.

What about you? Do you have a device that uses Google's Phone app, and would you find native call recording useful?
