Recording calls on your mobile phone is not an easy task. In most Android and Apple mobile devices, there is no default call recording feature as a result of the federal and state laws on call recording. However, people have found ways to go about recording calls on their phone. Some of these ways include downloading third-party apps, rooting their phones, using external recorders, and using another mobile phone (if they have two). Not all these methods allow you to automatically record calls on your phone. You can only do this with some third-party apps. We’ve picked the best apps to help you record calls automatically. Let’s take a look.
Automatic Call Recorders For Android
On Android devices, you could use any of these call recorders to automatically record your phone calls after configuring them based on your preferences.
Automatic Call Recorder is our #1 app for recording calls without manually setting it up when making or receiving calls. Apart from the automatic feature, this app allows you to choose which recordings you’ll like to keep after the call is over, so you don’t fill up your storage with junk. You can also easily filter through your recordings by searching by phone number, contact, or note. If you don’t want to record any more calls automatically, you can choose to ignore everything. This app gives you the freedom to fully customize your call recording preferences. It comes in a free and pro version. In the pro version, you can decide whose contact to automatically record while leaving the rest.
Some people may argue that Another Call Recorder is better than the Automatic Call Recorder app. After Installing ‘Another Call Recorder,’ it first asks you to confirm if call recording is legal in your country and you acknowledge that you cannot record Wi-Fi or internet calls with the app even before you start recording. After launching the app, you’ll notice that it has even more features than the Automatic call Recorder.
It sorts you call recordings into incoming, outgoing, and important. You can also sort your recordings by date or contact. Another Call Recorder also integrates with the cloud. So, you can store your recordings on OneDrive and FTP. You can also easily send your recordings via email (in the pro version). The only problem we have with this recording app is that the volume is too low. Even when we made calls with speakerphone enabled, the call was still too quiet.
Call Recorder by Lovekara is another automatic call recording app. This app is easy to install and use. When you save your calls, you can either store them on your phone or your SD card. But, you cannot store them on the cloud. While this app is great for recording, it has way too many ads which may be distracting at times. It doesn’t have a premium version that takes the ads away, so you’ll have to use it that way.
Blackbox Call Recorder is another call recording app with automatic features. We love this app because it presents you with great features. After installing the app, you’re ready to use it. You don’t need to push extra buttons to record your calls. It will record both your incoming and outgoing calls without any problems. You can back up your saved recordings on your Google Drive, so you can get them on any device you’re using. You also get access to extra features you won’t find in other apps such as Bluetooth earphone support, automatic delete feature, dual sim support, and security features to protect your call recordings.
This call recorder has more features than the Blackbox Call Recorder. We can say it is the most versatile call recorder you will find on the Google Play Store. Apart from automatically recording your incoming and outgoing calls, you can also store your recordings in various file formats including MP3, MP04, 3GP, and AMR. You don’t have to go to your app when you make or receive a call. As long as you’re on a call, that call is being recorded. The RMC: Android Call Recorder also comes with a Trash bin where your recordings are first stored when you delete them. So, you can easily recover any recordings you accidentally deleted. This app also allows for integration with cloud storage. So, you can store them on your Google Drive or Dropbox.
Automatic Call Recorders for iPhone
For the iPhone users, you can use the below-given applications available on the iTunes store to start recording phone calls from anyone after configuring them accordingly.
Just like on Android phones, Automatic Call Recorder is also one of the best call recording apps for iPhones. What almost everyone loves about this app if its user interface. The developers made it so easy to use. Apart from easily sorting your saved calls, you also have the option to edit your recordings, and store your files on cloud services like Google Drive, OneDrive, and Dropbox among others. With the Automatic Call Recorder by Arun Nair, you can also generate call transcripts, making it easier to read through the details of the call in more than 50 languages.
The Rev Call Recorder is a free app on the app store that gives you unlimited recordings on your incoming and outgoing calls. This app is also great for transcribing call recordings. So, if you recorded an interview or you’re doing research, you can easily get the call transcripts. Rev Call Recorder also allows you to share these transcripts and recordings on your cloud storage platforms such as Dropbox, via email, and to many other services.
TapeACall Pro allows you to record calls you’re about to make or calls you’re on. Immediately the call ends, you see the recordings on your phone. But not every recording is saved to your phone. It presents the option of saving or trashing the recording. You can also share the recording via text, email, or social media. This is a premium app, so you only have 7 days to determine if it’s the call recording app you want to go for.
4. CallRec Lite
This call recording app for iPhone is just like the others on this list. After automatically recording your call, you can save them on your phone and upload them to the cloud through Google Drive or Dropbox. You can share your saved recordings on email and social media. CallRec Lite is a freemium app. With the free version, you can only listen to the first 60 seconds of your recording. You get access to the entire call recording when you upgrade to the pro version by paying a one-time fee of $8.99.
Call Recorder & Voice Memo for iPhone helps you record your incoming and outgoing calls automatically. Just like TapeACall Pro, it uses a conference room system to record your calls. In this case, you don’t have to make your calls from the app. When you make a call, tap the merge button on the recorder app, and your calls will start recording. By the time you’re done with your calls, you’ll get high-quality recordings with clear voices from both ends.
