Do you also do call recording? Now call recording will be difficult from 11th May. Actually, after this, the third-party apps will not have the access to the do-call recording. Google will update its policy that will ban third-party call recording apps from getting listed on the Play Store. There are hundreds of call recording apps on the Google Play Store for Android smartphones. In contrast, Apple has only a few call recording apps on the App Store, which are paid. Soon call recording is going to be difficult even in Android smartphones. The new and updated Google Play Store Policy will come into effect from May 11. Under the new policy call, recording will not be allowed using Google’s accessibility APIs. This is part of the tech giant’s efforts to crack down on apps that use Android’s accessibility APIs for non-accessibility reasons. For third-party apps, accessibility APIs are the only way to record calls on Android.
Now Google is preparing to tighten the noose on-call recording apps. Google has turned off the default call recording feature with Android 10. Although other companies still provide call recording features in their Android-based custom OS. From May 11, Google is implementing a new Google Play policy to prevent third-party apps from using the Call Recording Accessibility API. After the implementation of the policy call recording using the third-party apps can not be done.
Samsung and Xiaomi smartphones that offer built-in call recording functionalities will be able to continue with the services. This means if the customer is using a Samsung or Xiaomi phone with their own custom diallers, he will be able to still record the same way as earlier. Google had said the policy will not affect apps with native call recording functionality.
This new policy of Google will be applicable to third-party call recording apps present on the Play Store. According to the report of Android Authority, it has been said in Google Play policy updates that if the phone’s default dialer has a call recorder and is preloaded, then there will be no need for accessibility for the incoming audio stream, so there will be no violation of Google’s new policy.
It will not be a surprise if the third-party Android call recorder installed on your phone stops working from May 11. Because this policy of Google 11 is applicable from 11th May. Third-party call recording apps breach the privacy of the users. Call recording is illegal in many countries, so companies do not endorse it…
