When Android 6.0 Marshmallow was released back in 2015, Google withdrew the official call recording API.

As noted by PiunikaWeb, the team behind Call Recorder - ACR has posted a message on its forums saying: "We would like to inform our users that there will be no call recording workaround on Android 9 and above". Majority are busy in figuring out the new changes Google has introduced with Android 9.0, aka Android P. But among all, the change in call recording in Android Smartphone has caught the eyeballs of Android app developers.

The company will apparently roll out the Android Pie update for six smartphone models between September and November. For years, Android phones have been offering many features that rival iOS has restricted from its devices - connect external storage drives, advanced file sharing systems, call recording and much more. Realising the growing demand for call recording feature, since then a lot many third-party apps offering call recording in Android smartphone have mushroomed.

Police warn of ‘dangerous narcotics’ after seven fatal overdoses in 12 days

So, it seems that the only way to record call in Android 9 Pie is to root your phone. A quick search on the Play Store reveals several hundred call recording apps, so it is a highly requested feature. Check the list below to see which devices will be part of the first wave getting the Pie treatment.

It is interesting that Google are saying that the charging bug is only applicable to third party chargers but numerous users reporting this issue are seeing it while using the official charger out of the box. But, those who may opt for the latter option, must be aware rooting will void any warranty on their device.

One of the best things about owning a Pixel phone is the speed at which you receive updates but unfortunately there are downsides, one of them being that a speedy update can sometimes mean bugs are included.
