Earlier this year, Google added call recording and transcription features to the Google Phone app in select regions. And now the company is testing an “Always Record”
First passed by a tipster to XDA developers, the ‘Always answer’ setting is rolled out to select users with access to Google Phone’s call recording feature. Local and federal call recording laws vary by region, and several US states require all parties on the call to consent before they can be recorded. Therefore, the availability of the feature varies by region. Unfortunately, Google hasn’t clarified which regions support call recording, and most of the devices that support it are from Nokia or Xiaomi.
To check if call recording is available on your device, open the settings of the Google Phone app and look for the ‘Call recording’ tab. Turn on the feature to set up call recording. If the new automatic recording feature is available on your device, you should see the “Always Record” section in your “Record Call” settings.
When you turn on call recording for the first time, a pop-up window tells you that “many jurisdictions require the consent of both parties for such a recording” and that “it is up to you to follow the laws on call recording.” Sounds like good advice, although you’ll usually end up with robocaller tapes, and I doubt they care about being taped.
