There are several reasons for recording phone calls. It can be for legal reasons or just because you want to keep a record of your things. Although some smartphones come with call recording features, on the other smartphones you may need to download a third-party app to use it. Truecaller is a popular caller ID app, which has recently introduced an in-call call recording feature for Android, and is now rolling out to the users.
This feature is particularly available for premium users. If you keep interest in the premium membership, you can pay 49 rupees per month or 449 rupees per year (you can save Rs. 139 in this). There is an option to try premium membership once to make payment and subscribe for it. Users get 14-day test subscriptions for this feature. Once you do this, you can go ahead and enable the call recording feature. Here’s all the details about it.
How To Use Truecaller’s Call Recording Feature –
First of all, make sure that you have updated the Truecaller app to the latest Version 9.13.7 or above. After this, if you do not already have an account, then login with your ID or create a new ID.
Tap the Hamburger menu on the left side of the Truecaller home screen and then tap on “Call recording”.
After this you will see an option to start the test (if you are not a Premium customer). Otherwise, you have to accept usage terms with the permission to record and store for internal use.
After completing the step above once, tap on “View Recording Settings” on the next screen. Here, you can choose between ‘Auto’ and ‘Manual’ mode. While Auto mode records the phone call itself Manual mode will give you a small icon on the call screen, in which you will have to hit start manually. With this button you can also stop recording.
All call recordings are saved in the phone’s internal storage and can be seen or heard using the File Manager. However, the app does not allow you to store songs on external storage. In addition, Google dropped the ability to record calls with Android 9 Pie. We tried it at pixel 2 XL and it did not allow us to record call audio. So if you’re on Android Pie OS, then you can not use it until Google allows it on your behalf.
