Our smart phones are the most powerful contraptions gadget ever that allows us to perform a lot of task easily beyond general calling or messaging. With our advance smart phones we have ability to perform a lot of things apart from calling or messaging like photography, gaming and all other different tasks.
Since communication is important, technology has also been growing, and the major Smartphone OEMs is also improving with a lot of extra added features which made it easy for us to record audio as well as video calls with built-in or third-party app support.
Google has reported a new policy centered around the evacuation of Android third-party recording applications that supports call recording. The tech giant is at present chipping at this new policy that is said to come into effect on May 11, 2022.
It should be noted that Google is not entirely stopping the support for audio call recording on its platform for good but it’s rather modifying the Accessibility API for remote calling with this, it will limit app developers from accessing recording audio calls remotely.
The policy was at first reported by a Reddit user called NLL-APPS on the Google play console support page.
Who Will All Be Affected?
These new privacy will just limit users from downloading third-party applications that ask ask permission for remote call recordings. On the off chance that a user smartphone comes with an inbuilt call recording option as a part of the custom UI offered by the OEM then, there will not be any issue for recording calls. For example, the Xiaomi’s MIUI OS comes with an inbuilt call recorder which you can use to record calls within the dialer app.
