Recording phone calls can be very helpful in some situations. Appropriate applications available for Android and iOS phones. As for the legitimacy of recording conversations, opinions are divided, especially since the regulations do not regulate this issue unequivocally. If such recording is to be used later, for example as confirmation of an oral contract, it is worth informing the caller.
Call recording – ACR
Some phone models already have a built-in call recording option, which only needs to be properly initialized. However, this does not apply to all models. Therefore, it is best to use the universal option that will work on any phone. From the Play store, download the Call Recording - ACR application. This is one of the most popular proposals of this type. After downloading, you must give the application the required permissions, which you must agree to all. After configuring its operation, conversations will be automatically recorded and will be stored in the phone's memory. Call recording will work automatically: just answer or make a call. Of course, you can temporarily turn off the recording, just do it in the application menu. The quality of the recorded sound is very good from the beginning and only the initial configuration is sufficient.
FonTel – Call recorder
FonTel - Call Recorder is another application available for Android phones. Its functionality is very similar to the one indicated above. Additionally, you can encrypt recorded conversations with a password and amplify the sound to 30 decibels. What is important is the application is available in Polish. After setting the parameters, the application works in the background and is ready to record all conversations. Manual settings are also available, which can be used by people who like to play with such functionalities. You can set in them, among others, that the application should record only the interlocutor or start with specific contacts.
Recording calls on iPhones is more difficult and often even paid. Some types of applications need a so-called jailbreak, which will void the warranty. The TapeACall Pro: Call Recorder application requires payment in a subscription system, and without a guarantee of proper operation. It may turn out that the best option in this case will still be to use the voice recorder and speakerphone.
