Getting multiple calls a day can be hectic and unmanageable if you are in a business or services industry. This is where some great call recording apps on Android will help you keep track of every call you get or make. If you are a person who has to make calls for any reason, there is a good chance you might need a reliable call recorder.
A lot of smartphones manufacturers these days are building this almost mandatory feature into their phones, but a lot of them are still missing it. Thankfully, we all use a platform that is pretty much open to any app, and we have the option to add features on.
There are many call recording apps on Android available on the Google Play Store but, not many of them work well. I’ll be honest here; not every app will work on your smartphone or tablet. I learned this by testing around 15 apps on three different devices, and only four of them worked on all three smartphones.
This uneven result means that hardware plays a crucial part in the reliability of call recording apps for Android. Some apps started to work when I turned on my smartphone’s speaker. This can work very well if your smartphone comes with noise canceling microphone otherwise, the listener will get echoes back.
That being said, I urge you to try out all of the apps in this list and select the one that works for your particular device. Do not take my word because my experience is only limited to three devices and these apps are very unpredictable.
Note: The five best call recording apps on Android were tested on an LG G4 smartphone running on Android marshmallow 6.0. Apps worked fine, and I had no problems at all during testing. However, I have to warn you about the unpredictable nature of all these apps. Even though they are best of the best, there is a slight chance that one of the apps might not get to work on your device. It is highly recommended that you try out all five and select the one that works for you.
Call Recorder – ACR
Free & $2.99
This call recorder is perhaps the best one right now on the play store. The interface is very well designed and everything is extremely manageable. The app automatically runs when you need it to run, and it records every call you make.
The calls are saved according to the number, and you can sift through the calls with various filters. The app also allows you to group recordings by date, so you know when a call was made. The app will also be able to delete old recordings automatically.
If you don’t want a recording to be deleted; you can mark it as important. App also has options to display contact name and photo. If you don’t want to record calls from a certain number you can excluded it from the recordings.
This app may look really outdated by its interface but it does the job well. At the end of the day, we don’t need a call recorder to show us beautiful graphics, we need it to record the calls. This is exactly what this call recorder app for Android does.
While the interface can certainly use an update, the major elements of the call recorder are easy to navigate through. Every call you record will be shown right on the main screen and you will be also able to play them with ease.
There is a large button on the top of the screen which allows you to Swift through different filters making it easier to navigate. While the calls are not recorded at full volume for some reason, they are recorded well.
Automatic call recorder Pro has the best-looking interface in all of these apps. I really love how well designed and beautiful this app looks. However, the app may impress you with amazing looking interface but it’s the quality of voice recording which needs to be top-notch. Thankfully, the app delivers on that front as well.
The app records the phone calls in the crystal-clear MP3 quality that allows you to relive conversations with utmost accuracy. If you are a paying customer, you can also activate recordings by simply shaking the phone; saving you the trouble of pressing the virtual button. The app also allows you to synchronize your recordings with a Dropbox account. This feature is essential if you record a lot of phone calls and need to free space on your smartphone.
This is another app made by the same company which produced the previous call recording app on Android. So, a lot of similar features are seen here which is fine. The reason why I include it on this on the list is that if the above app doesn’t run, you still have this app to check out.
The feature set is almost the same but I think the back and code is a little bit changed so, it is worth a try. The interface is not as fleshed out as the previous app, but you will get the same features here as well.
You can record your phone calls automatically and in MP3 format. The recording filter allows you to choose which calls you want to save. You can also dictate whether you want to record calls from unknown numbers or not.
Automatic call recorder was a marvelous app back when we tested it for the first time. It is the very same app and provides the same features. However, many other apps have stepped up their game and taken its place on the list.
If you want a reliable call recording app on Android, this is one of those apps. The interface is very clear and provides all the functions right on the main screen.
The left-hand option bar is pretty standard in apps these days, and this app also uses it. Tap on the three horizontal lines on the top left corner of the screen and the app will provide you with more options and settings.
One good thing about the app is the call note feature, which allows you to type down information about a certain call. This helps you in recalling what the conversation was about without actually listening to the call.
These are some of the best call recording apps on Android and they work on most of the devices. If one app doesn’t work on yours, I recommend that you try out another app without further investigation. A lot of smartphones have incompatible hardware that hinders the apps from recording. I personally think this might be a root access issue but I may be wrong, though.
