    Default Recording phone calls

    Hi All, I'm sure there are people that record all their calls. one never knows when you may need to refer back to something. Companies do it for this reason.Is there anyone that is using an app that successfully does this. There are so many apps out there and they all promise the world but don't deliver. Who can recommend an app?

    It would help to know what mobile device you are using. If Android, I highly recommend ACR.

    You can also look at Drupe as a call /contact manager which has call recording built into it.

    In the latest Android update called Pie - they blocked call recording.

    After the update my Note 9 failed to record the other persons voice.

    ACR is the only app afaik that still works with PIE - my Note included.

    n Android Pie they only blocked the call identification for call recordings, e.g. you can still have calls recorded, but you would then have to manually add the caller's name or number, which previously was done by the app.
    Call Recorder also works without problems.

    Does anybody know the legal ramifications of recording a phonecall without informing the other party.
    Banks, insurers, etc inform you that the call is being recorded, is this a legal requirement?

    Are you infringing on the callers rights by not informing them?
    Can you actually USE the recording for anything other than proving a point?
    Can the other party charge you under the right to privacy act?

    I use ACR as well, initially downloaded from Google Play. When they decided to stop the Caller ID, I downloaded same app from Galaxy store and all back to normal again

    I am no legal expert. However, did an internal course on discipline, and it was also confirmed that you may record a conversation that you are part of. Only if you are reasonably expected not to be part of the conversation may you not record it.

    Most reviewers on Google Play store for ARC confirms that recording of the other party on Android 9 is not working.
