Call recording

alexCM Member Posts: 3 Listener
Hi All,

I have a memory problem and have for many years used a call recording app to record my phone calls. Google have now taken away this function from my phone with their latest update. In fact its now the case that most phone won't record phone calls. In light of a disability is it possible to ask google as a reasonable adjustment to allow the function on my phone? Or is there another solution?

    Hi alexCM

    Cube Call Recorder ACR for android phones has some good reviews. Free, no ads and you can set what it records.

    If you have an iphone not sure.

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!

    Hello @alexCM, unfortunately the Google update you mentioned has made a lot of these recording apps a bit redundant as many of them will no longer record both sides of the conversation.
    There are call recorder attachments you can buy for your phone, but they obviously won't be as affordable as an app.

    Thanks for the replies. Which recorder attachments would still work even after this update?

    I use "Boldbeast" on Android 8.1. Call recording apps have always been tricky and results vary from model to model. Some have free trial versions which might help in choosing.
