Call recorder apps are used by some people for good reasons. Some people want to keep phone calls on their phone because they might need it in the future or if they need to sue someone. However, this is illegal in some areas of the world. We recommend that you look up your country’s laws before downloading one of these apps.
There are some issues with call recording apps. Android’s support is not good and there are ways to record calls on newer versions of Android. Many call recorders record the loudspeaker, but that requires you to make all your calls over speakerphone. Some other apps work differently, but they require complicated set-ups and a lot of permissions. Google makes it hard for these programs to work.
Some of these may work in Android 8.0 and earlier, and some may work in Android 9. But it’s hard to tell for sure on every device. Those that work on Android 10 have complicated installation instructions, even then it is not guaranteed. We do not guarantee anything here. We made these work at least once on at least one tester’s phone, and on the latest version of the Android system.
Automatic Call Recorder
The Automatic Call Recorder is one of the best call recorder apps for Android. It was hit hard by Google Play’s new policies on call logs, but it still records calls. This app has a lot of cool features. One is that it will let you use Google Drive and Dropbox. It also has a few other little features to help things out. The pro version is expensive, but it includes some extra features as well. I only have one issue with the app – the call log thing doesn’t work right sometimes
Automatic Call Recorder by recorder & smart apps
This app is like the other Automatic Call Recorder on this list, but not as popular. It has some good features, including automatic call recording, organization features, and the ability to record in several different audio codecs. It also supports backup over cloud storage and a few other little features as well. It is not better but it might be the same as the other one with the same name. You can go with either one.
Blackbox Call Recorder
Blackbox is a professional call recorder app. It has the usual features, like recording calls, and it also has a lock function for security. That means that others can’t listen in on your phone if you have the lock function on. There is also Bluetooth support and dual-SIM support in Blackbox. It has a long list of features and it’s easy to use. It might cost money, but not too much.
Boldbeast Call Recorder
Boldbeast Call Recorder- this app either works for you or does not work at all. You can check the Google Play ratings to find out if we are telling the truth. In any case, this app is actually well made and you can set it to manually record calls by pressing a hotkey if you need to the app also functions as a voice recorder. It will work on all phones that are running Android 8.1 or newer, but it will not work on any phone with Android 9 or 10 without doing some extra steps. You can find the steps here.
Call Recorder Automatic
Call Recorder Automatic is a good app. You need to put your phone on speaker and then it records both sides of the conversation. It is easy to use and it does well. This app records your phone calls and you can do what you want with them. People who didn’t like the call log problem and some other restrictions in Android Pie had a lot of bad things to say about it. But we did not have any problems with it when we tested it.
Cube Call Recorder
Cube Call Recorder is one of the few apps on this list that has a name. We appreciate it. This app also works with VoIP services like Skype, Viber, WhatsApp, Slack, Telegram, and others. It has many features which include organizational features, playback features, and recording quality features. You can even exclude contacts from automatic call recording. This app appears to work on an Android phone that is 10, but it requires a complicated set-up like Boldbeast Call Recorder. You can find a Reddit thread full of people who actually got this to work.
Otter Voice Notes
Otter Voice Notes is an app that helps you take notes. You can listen to your voice notes and organize them, or you can transcribe old voice recordings. It doesn’t record calls like other call recording apps do, but it does allow you to import voice recordings from other apps. You will get 600 minutes of transcription service for free each month. After that, you will have to subscribe. If you have a good recording from another app, you can get it transcribed with this one so that you have both an audio and text version of the recording.

This app is for recording your voice. It also records the sound of a phone call.

Bonus: Google Voice
Google Voice is an old product. It has the ability to record phone calls. Google Support has a tutorial on it here. There are some limitations with it, though. For example, you cannot record outgoing phone calls. This is unfortunate but you can work around this limitation by using another program or app that records outgoing phone calls from your cell What you need to do is set up a number with Google Voice and connect it to your regular phone number. It is more complicated than some other solutions, but it’s still a solution.
