Google Phone dialer app has been one of the most advanced phone dialer apps as it comes with a lot of smart features like rich caller ID but misses out on something as basic as call recording. This is what Google is addressing in the next version of the Google Phone dialer app which will come with an easy-to-use recording feature.
Google has repeatedly added and then removed such a feature, perhaps both due to legal concerns as well as quality standards. Signs that the official Google Phone dialer app would be getting such a basic feature appeared earlier this month and now it seems that Google is all but ready to unleash it to the world.
According to XDA Developers, version 44 of Google Phone dialer comes with a Record icon that you can tap to start and stop recording. The button will change its appearance to clearly indicate that a call is being recorded.
In addition to recording the call, the Phone app’s call log has also been modified to allow for playing back those recordings. Recordings can also be shared, in which case a WAV file is sent to the recipient.
It’s unclear whether Google will limit this feature to Pixel phones though there doesn’t seem to be any technical reason for that. However, it will be unveiled at a later stage when it will be officially announced by the company.
