Google Phone app may get call recording feature soon

Google Phone app may get call recording feature soon

As it stands, once you have access to an Android device, it's possible to launch the Chrome web browser and login to any websites that you've asked Google to save the login data in the past - without any extra verification.

This one could be a bit of a minefield for anyone concerned about their privacy.

Recording phone calls is a very touchy subject. There will be a visual indicator for the person recording, but that's not much comfort for others on a call.

As pointed out by Android Police, Google has just started rolling out an all-new "Labs" section in the latest update of the Google app.

There's also a number of strings that mention saving voicemails.

The most and least likely Super Bowl matchups after the divisional round

According to XDA Developers report, the latest version of Google Phone app, 43.0.289191107, has been spotted testing the call recording feature on Android One handsets, especially Pixel 4 smartphones. For the full story, be sure to head over to 9to5Google.

Having an important business or personal call and would like the conversation to be recorded for posterity on your Android-powered phone? A clear indicator or notice when a call is being recorded could already go a long way in warning users should they be caught unaware. This upset some users, but Xiaomi promised that despite the move to Google's app, call recording would be "obtainable" in 2020, though it didn't explain how or precisely when.

Interestingly, the screenshots also seem to show that alongside pinch-to-zoom, Google Labs is also bringing a new screenshot editing feature that the company says will allow users to "edit (their) screenshots, explore them with Lens, share them with a link and more".
