However, there’s always a threat to privacy with recording calls. This is especially true if the opposite party does not provide consent. Hence, most phones don’t come with an in-built call recorded. If you have a Samsung phone, you’re in luck.

Here’s how you can record calls using the built-in Phone app on Samsung Galaxy phones.

Call Recording: Privacy and Legalities

Before you record a phone call, it’s important to obtain consent from the opposite party since it can be a breach of their privacy. In fact, in some regions worldwide, recording calls is illegal.

In the US, several states allow call recording based on the consent of just one party, which is yourself, as long as you are involved in the conversation. However, some states require you to have consent from both parties.

Regardless of which region you’re in, it’s best to respect the other person’s privacy and let them know that you’re recording the call.

Google’s phone app also comes with a call recorded and has one standout feature – it announces to both parties that the call is being recorded once you hit the record button. This way, all parties involved in the conversation are alerted about the recording.

However, Samsung’s phone app does not have this feature. Some may appreciate since it doesn’t alert scammers that you’re recording the call.
