Smartphones are experiencing an accelerated evolution every day and technological advances become more visible. Things that before were impossible to think about doing with our cell phones, today are possible and one of those is being able to record phone calls. This tool has become a very useful possibility since sometimes there are people who for different circumstances need to record important conversations.

Unfortunately, the Android operating system does not allow you to record directly, but it does not indicate that you cannot do so. Whether you have an interview, an important or compromising call, or you simply want to record a conversation to have it as a souvenir, in any of these options you can record your calls and at Celulares.pro we will teach you how to do it.

How to make a record of a call on Android

The Android operating system does not add the option to record a phone call, but there are already applications that allow you to do it without complications. What you have to do is download these applications and put them to work.

ACR call recording

ACR call recording is considered one of the most popular applications on the market. This app is completely free, although it has a Pro version that costs 1.99 euros and has the option of allowing us to upload the recordings we make in the cloud. At the time of installing it, you will request certain permissions, which we must accept. To download it we must follow the following steps:

  1. We go to Google Play Store and in the search engine we will write ACR Call Recording or we can click here .
  2. Once the application appears, we must press on the install icon .
  3. We wait a few minutes for the application to download completely and ready.

Once we have installed the application, we can access it. From the side menu of the app we can activate the recording of calls. Once you activate the recording mode, you simply have to make your corresponding call and the notification will appear that this call is being recorded.

That call that was recorded, will appear in the main menu where you will be able to play it again, share it or if you wish, delete it. In the settings section of the app, you can configure various details, which will help you optimize the results you want, among those details are: record calls only from certain contacts, choose where you want the recordings to be saved and self-delete conversations that they have time.

CallX Call Recorder

This app is quite complete, and has a very simple to use design. The operation of this app is very similar to the rest of the recording apps that exist in the Play Store. You must accept the corresponding permissions, activate the recording and when you make your calls, they will be recorded automatically. To download the app, you must follow the following steps:

  1. We are going to go to the Google Play Store and we are going to type in the CallX search bar or we can click here .
  2. Once the application appears, we must press on the install icon .
  3. We wait a few minutes for the app to download completely and ready.

When we open the app, we can see that it has different recording formats, so we can choose between WAV or MP3. We can also limit the space for memory or, if we want, we can upload the recordings to Dropbox or Google Drive.

This app allows us to add certain gestures to make recordings, for example start recording when we shake the phone. You can also add certain contacts in the favorites section and add notes when hanging the calls that we are recording.

Our third option is the Call Recorder app. This app, in addition to being free, has a very simple and easy-to-use design, which will allow us to record calls to our liking. In the notification panel we can see that the calls are being recorded. It should be noted that this app has more than 2 million downloads. If you want to download this app, you must follow these steps:

  1. We go to Google Play Store and download the app or click here to download it.
  2. When the app is completely downloaded, we must accept the permissions that the application suggests.
  3. We go to the Call Recorder configuration and configure the calls that we want to record and that's it.

With this application, we can select specific contacts to record these conversations or mark all the contacts. One point to keep in mind is that if you have several call recording applications, they can collide with each other and present problems. So we recommend that you only have one app of all the ones mentioned above.

How to record a call on an iOS phone

Within the iOS operating system you will find several apps that will allow you to record your calls. Some will allow you to do it for free, others will have a cost to do it. Before using them, you must verify that all the apps that we will show you below are compatible with your country, since most of them work perfectly only in the United States.

Google Voice

Without a doubt, this is the best application to make recordings on iPhone phones, but this app, unfortunately, is not available in all countries of the world. This tool will allow you to record your calls without any cost, so it has an advantage over the rest of the paid apps. But you should know that this app has certain limitations, that this app can only be used for incoming calls and you must transfer your phone number to the Google folder so that you can have access to record your calls. To configure this folder, you must follow these steps:

  1. You have to configure your Google Voice account by entering the official page, you can do it by clicking here .
  2. When you have already been able to enter, and you have completed all the registration, you can use this function.
  3. You have to enable the call recording function in Google Voice , and when doing so, they will be saved in an MP3 file.
  4. When you receive a call and want to record it, you must press number 4 on your keyboard and when you do, you will hear a voice that will indicate that the call is being recorded.
  5. Once the recording is finished, the audio will be saved automatically.

After this, you can share those recordings or listen to them as many times as you want.

TapeACall Lite

This app is a good option to record calls on your iPhone. TapeACall is a free app but has in-app purchases. The operation of this app consists of making an additional call to what you are making, and this additional call is the one that will be in charge of recording the entire conversation. When we use the app for free, she will allow us to record the entire conversation, but we can only listen to the first 60 seconds of the app. In order to listen to the complete recording, we must pay 9.99 euros.

To download this app, you must follow these steps:

  1. We go to the App Store and in the search engine we will write TapeACall Lite or we can click here .
  2. Once the application appears, we must press on the install icon .
  3. We wait a few minutes for the application to download completely and ready.

Burovoz

This is another free application but with in-app purchases. The developers of the app affirm that she is the only one that will allow you to record phone calls and certify them with total legal certainty, which you can do through their platform, but to apply for this certification, you must do a credit recharge . This app is only available in Spain and you can get it in Catalan. If you want to download it, you can follow these steps.

  1. Go to the App Store and search for Burovoz in the store search engine, or we can click here .
  2. Once the application appears, we must press on the install icon .
  3. We wait a few minutes for the application to download completely and ready.

IntCall call recording

This app, like the previous two, is a free app but with in-app purchases. The developers of the app affirm that this is the only app that makes use of a VOIP server, but in order to use it, we need to acquire a credit, since it is through the call link that we can record the calls. So having a good internet connection is essential. To download the app click here .

Is it legal to record conversations on the phone?

Recording conversations is a subject that many people ask themselves, since everything depends on the country where you are, since the laws are not the same in each country regarding the recording of calls. In both Europe and much of Latin America, recording the conversations is completely legal, as long as the two parties agree to do so. This means that if you are recording an audio and the other person does not know, you can cause legal problems.

Within Europe, only Germany is the only country that does not allow call recording. Unless you have the legal consent to do so. Another point that you have to take into account is that in Spain, you can record calls, but you cannot share them, unless both parties agree.

Taking all this into account, you can now make one of any of these applications, both on the Android and iOS operating systems.
