Record your incoming and outgoing calls


LLene asked for Android help as she wants to record her calls and we will help her do it.

Android devices have some limitation on recording the calls. Google doesn’t want these phones to be hackers tools so the company doesn’t allow any recording on the calls from the inside.

So we have to find an app that can record an app from the outside. There are plenty of apps but not all of them work.

Record my Call: Call Recorder is an app that can record all your calls, incoming and outgoing and it can do that automatically.

This app can only record your microphone so you can turn the loudspeaker on and have better quality. Otherwise you can hear your caller on the background. It’s not bad but it doesn’t work all the time and not in all devices.

Steps to record a call

1. Download the app from Google Play and install it.

2. Open the app, accept the terms and activate the service.

Now every time your phone rings the app will record the call.

More options

You can also activate manual recording and record anytime you want.

Select if you want notifications on or off. You can put notifications to off and record the calls of your wife on her Android phone.

As the phone records every call, you need to activate the app and then it will be always on. At the end of the day you can listen to her phone calls.

You can also record some important phone calls to remember them what it has been said.

The app will also sync your recorded files to dropbox so as long as the call has finished, you can listen what it is being said. This can also be done in Google Drive and Lookout.

This app works also as a filter and you can filter calls from unknown numbers.

Unfortunately the app works on certain devices like most HTC phones (except Evo and One X, Some Sony, limited LG, none Motorola and rare Samsung devices.

You can try on your phone, it is free!

    seems interesting but I’m not trying to record all my calls for that day, just certain calls. Wonder if it works for my s3.

    non-root app that requires you to be on speaker phone (not always convenient)… nice app though…

    btw.. anyone ever heard of this functionality before??
    i owned an old nokia “smartphone” from dubai that allowed me to hit “silence” on incoming calls and listen to the caller on the other end… it was a real time call-screening functionality built into the phone…. of course i lost the phone and have never seen it anywhere else….

      yes that’s true, but it’s working! With the hardware limitations, it’s hard to find a solution.
