Truecaller Restores Call Recording For Android & iOS Users

Truecaller, the popular caller ID and call-blocking app, has reintroduced the most requested voice call recording feature on both Android And iOS devices. This feature was removed last year due to Android’s regulations on third-party calling apps.

Truecaller Restores Call Recording For Android & iOS Users

Currently, the voice call recording feature is limited to Premium Connect, Assistant, or Premium Family plan subscribers. The feature is available only in the U.S. and will be gradually rolled out in other parts of the world in the coming months, including India.

Overcoming Restrictions With A Clever Workaround 

Both Android and iOS operating systems prevent apps from recording calls natively. However, Truecaller has found a workaround by using a dedicated recording line.

On Android, users who have selected Truecaller as their default calling app can now easily enable call recording via the dialer itself, with the app automatically recording all incoming and outgoing calls. Similarly, those who use a third-party dialer will receive a floating call recording button from the Truecaller app to start call recording.

On the other hand, unlike Android, Apple does not allow any app to record calls on iOS devices. To record incoming and outgoing calls, iPhone or iOS users must call a recording line within the Truecaller app and merge both calls to start the recording process. To ensure user privacy, the other party on the call will hear a beep sound to indicate that ‘the call is being recorded.’
