Call recording will return to Android, Google already works on it

One of the features that most users miss is the ability to record calls. Google eliminated this feature with the arrival of Android 9 for security reasons, ensuring that it would end up returning to the system when it could work with full guarantees.

It seems that this moment is near, and it is that the Google phone application already includes in its code several references to the call recording.

The Google calling application will have call recording

In the last hours, version 43 of the Google phone application arrived on Google Play, a version that despite not including great news, although it brings a couple of hidden news that many users expected.

The first one is the possibility of recording calls, which is referenced in the code of a new button, which would work to make calls:


In addition to this long-awaited feature, several references to a new one have been included voicemail that would save these messages locally on our device, guaranteeing us better reliability than our operator would give us. Voicemails would have their own tab in the phone application, being able to access them at all times.

An interesting question is what will happen when Google finishes releasing this function. It is important to keep in mind that, since the company withdrew the function of the system, if now that they have created a tool they do not end up sharing it with the rest of the manufacturers it could be considered as a case of unfair competition with respect to the rest of the manufacturers that lost the possibility for Google to develop its own function.

Of course, this situation is hypothetical, so we will have to wait for the official launch to see what happens finally.
