After the recent Google Updates, the Call Recording feature was removed from the Android Pie as well as the Android Q.
Well, it was one of the important features and we will love to get it back.
And, here we are going to tell you how to use call recording feature on Android Pie and Q
Recently, Google has made some changes that enabled users to record calls by using third-party applications without rooting your device.
Though, after the latest Google updates the non-root call recording apps became useless, thus making it difficult to record calls in Android Pie or Q. This can be due to the recent security changes which blocked the apps from using a microphone and camera from the background.
So, we are here with some tips and tricks to void the limitations of call recording on the Android Pie and Q.
Workarounds for Call Recording
Before we get started, we would suggest you to check any native call recording app on your smartphone.
OnePlus features a native call recording feature that records the call directly from the Dialer app and it even works on Android 9 and 10.
Similarly, Xiaomi and Realme also have in-build call recording applications. But, they are turned off by default.
To enable on Xiaomi devices with MIUI 10 and MIUI 11, follow the below steps.
- Open the Phone app on your smartphone
- Tap on the hamburger menu, and goto Settings
- Now Open Call recording and Enable both the toggles.
To enable on Realme devices follow the steps below:
- open the Settings App
- Now, go to the System Apps
- Click on call and then on Call Recording
- Now, Enable the toggle for “Record all calls”
Now, you’re all set for recording calls on Xiaomi and Realme devices.
Similarly, Samsung also has a native call recording feature but it was removed in some regions due to the privacy issue. But if the option is still available in your region, you can enable it by following the steps below:
- Open the Dialer app on your Phone
- Now, tap on the 3-dot menu and go to Settings
- In the Call Recorder option, enable the “Auto record calls” option.
This should work and if you didn’t find the option to record the calls, then you have to follow the other workarounds we have shown later in this post.
Apart from this, recent leaks suggest that Google might be bringing call recording feature on their stock Dialer app. Due to this, all the phones with stock android will have a built-in call recording feature once this feature rolls out.
Now, if you have any other phone or these above methods do not work for you, then you have to use the applications mentioned below.

Call Recording on Android Pie and Q
1. Call Recorder ACR
Call Recorder – ACR is one of the most popular call recorder for android and it works on almost every device. You will be able to record calls on the devices that don’t have a built-in call recorder.
However, if you install the app form PlayStore the app might not work, so download this app from the trusted source linked below. We tried this app on Mi A1 and on Samsung devices and it worked fine.
This app has some useful features other than call recording. The app allows you to backup your call recordings on Google Drive, DropBox, OneDrive and other popular cloud storage.
You can even directly send recordings in an email using the ACR. This feature may come in handy for a lot of users.
This app comes in a free version with ads or you can get the paid version of ACR to get rid of ads.
2. Cube Call Recorder ACR
Cube Call Recorder ACR is the best call recorder app on our list. Not only it allows you to download the call from the phone but also it lets you record call from other services like VoIP services including Skype, WhatsApp, Facebook and many more.
We tested Cube ACR on Pixel 2 and also on Samsung S10e Android 10 and it recorded all the calls without any issues.
The only downside is that VoIP call recording is not supported on all devices. So you have to first install this application on your device to see call recording is working or not.
Other than that, this is the best app that can use. Also, the Cube call recorder does not have any ads and its absolutely free.
3. Call Recorder by Boldbeast
Call Recorder by Boldbeast is the call recorder app that works mostly on all of the android devices. This app work on all Samsung, LG, Xiaomi, Nokia devices and devices from other brands.
Also, if you have the Samsung devices such as the S10, Note 10, then this app works out of the box. The apps work fine without any restrictions on all devices with Android Pie and Q.[PLAY STORE]
#TIP: Don’t Update to Android Pie or Later
If any of the above methods do no work and it is really important for you to record the calls. Then you should not install the latest android updates along with the Android Pie and Q.
This can be really easy because most of the smartphone manufacturers do not roll out updates regularly. And you just have to stick with your old Android Version.
So, we hope that the above-mentioned methods may have worked for you. If you have doubts regarding the above methods feel free to comment down below and we will get back to you.
