Are you okay with Google killing third-party call recording apps?


Google recently changed its Play Store policy effectively ending call recording apps from May 11. These apps use Google’s Accessibility API to record calls since the company banned other ways to do this with Android 10. Now Google is removing the ability to use the API for call recording.

So what does this mean? Third-party call recording apps will no longer work once Google implements and starts enforcing the policy change. You can still record calls if your phone offers the feature by default. For example, Google allows Pixel users to record calls through the phone app. Xiaomi’s Mi Dialer also supports the feature. However, if you use an app like Truecaller to record calls, you may not be able to do this as of May 11.

What do you think of Google’s move to prevent third-party apps from providing call recording services? Is it the right move for more privacy? Or shouldn’t it be up to Google to decide who needs call recording and who doesn’t? Take our poll below and tell us what you think in the comments.

Google is effectively killing third-party call recording apps on May 11. Do you support this?
