Google Phone app may get call recording feature soon

Google Phone app could soon introduce call recording

Google Labs, in case you don't remember, was an initiative that allowed enthusiasts to try out experimental features within some of the company's existing apps and services.

In an APK teardown of the Google Phone app, XDA Developers saw that there were new assets and an icon and layout that may be referring to call recording. Further evidence comes in the form of three new strings, two for "Record" and one for "Recording".

We aren't sure why Google would implement call recording back into its native phone app again, but we aren't complaining. They have also not released a call recording API since Android 6 Marshmallow.

OEMs like Xiaomi provide call recording for their devices and recently announced all of its devices sold in Europe will ship with Googles Phone and Messages apps in place of their Xiaomi alternatives. They promised though that it will be "obtainable" this 2020.

Authorities said the attacks appeared to "be random and there is no known relationship between the suspect and the victims". The name of the suspect and the charges against him have yet to be released.

Google introduced Live Caption, a feature that added locally-generated captions to all video and audio content on your phone, earlier this year with the Pixel 4.

Some users have of course found workarounds.

If you're someone who'd like call recording to be a standard feature on your Android phone, it looks as though your wish may come true. It could just be for Google's own phones, but then why would Xiaomi make the switch and suggest call recording would be available? Since the addition of the code was close to the Xiaomi announcement, it may just be for them.
