If you ever have been in a situation where you need to be a detective to uncover someone’s nefarious plans? If yes, then you must have thought about how you can record audio on a phone with the screen off. This article is for you if you also want to know how you can record audio on a phone with the screen off?
Just follow the methods or ways mentioned below:
Use the native audio recorder
Almost all smartphones have a built-in audio recorder that lets users record audio in the background. Recording audio in the background means recording the audio when the screen is turned off or you are doing some other work. In order to record audio in the background with a native recorder just follow these steps:
- Open the audio recorder app on your phone, it should be by names like- Audio recorder, Recorder, Sound Recorder, Voice recorder, etc.
- Now that you have opened the recorder, it is time to press the record button.
- After pressing the record button just jump back to the home menu or simply tap the power button to lock your phone.
And this is how you can enable sound recording in the background. This hack comes with a downside though. Some phones do not have either a built-in audio recorder or it does not allow recording in the background.
Use GOM Recorder
GOM Recorder is an audio recording app that can be very useful in certain situations where you have to quickly start recording the audio. The GOM Recorder comes with motion gestures you just have to set the intensity and shake your phone to start recording. It also comes with a schedule recording feature, along with a quick widget that you can add to your home screen, these features make GOM Recorder an easy audio spy tool for Android.

The next app on our list is Smart Recorder that is specifically designed for continuous recording, thanks to its skipping silence on-the-fly feature. You do not have to press the record button or the stop/pause button when there is no conversation, the app does it all by itself.
