In order to comply with regulations around recording phone calls without the other party’s consent, Android smartphones are required to use the Google Phone app as their default dialer. While you can still record a phone call using Google’s dialer app, it sends an alert to the other people on the call as soon as you hit the record button. While this is the ethical way to go about things, in some cases, it can defeat the purpose of recording a call. In this article, we show you how to remove the call recording warning on Android smartphones.
