You might be able to record voice calls with Google's phone app pretty soon
XDA Developers found out that Google's dialer app could soon come with a new nifty feature — call recording. The teardown was done on the Google Phone app edition 43. 0.289191107 on a Pixel 4.It found out a likely new layout, icon, and some other assets concerning call recording in the dialer, adding an in-call button to initiate recordings. Call recording hasn't been possible on stock Android versions with out rooting since Android 8 Oreo. Google closed workarounds app builders used to enable this functionality in Android 9 Pie, presumably for privacy and defense reasons.We aren't sure why Google would implement call recording back into its native phone app again, but we aren't complaining.By default, the app comes on all Google Pixel instruments, Android One instruments, and even Xiaomi contraptions. Hopefully, when you are running a compatible device, you should see this functionality soon.Related: Google's Recorder app is like magic, but here's how it works
Unfortunately, APK teardowns cannot officially verify if a feature is coming or not, and this situation is no different. And although Google does implement it, we aren't sure if it would be restricted to sure contraptions or not. Apparently, this is a characteristic Xiaomi device owners were wanting for quite a while, so it would make sense they might get the characteristic, though that's just speculation at this time.
