10 best call recorder apps for Android

Call recorder is playing a major tole in our life whether it comes to record some important call or to keeping some type of proof. Some people like to keep phone calls recorded for legal and security reasons on the other hand it practice borders on illegal in a lot of areas. It’s better to keep looking up your country’s laws before using one of these recording apps.

These apps have a lot of issues. Android’s support is scrappy at best and it’s actually very difficult to record calls on newer versions of Android. There are some of the ways around it. Many call recorders record the loudspeaker, similar to a voice recorder app, but that requires you to make all of your calls over speakerphone. And some have different ways, but require complicated set-ups and insane amounts of permissions. Google has made it very difficult to make these work.

Some of these may work in Android 8.0 and earlier and some may work in Android 9 and 10. But it’s honestly impossible to tell for sure on every device. Those that work on Android 10 have complicated installation instructions and even then, it’s not confirm that it works. Thus, we are not giving surety here.
