Here is the first glimpse of the Google Phone App’s call recording feature on the Pixel 4

You will see a 'Record' button in the in-call UI.

As of now, the Google Phone app is the default dialer app for Google Pixel smartphones but users are not allowed to record their incoming or outgoing calls. When this feature will be made available to users, they will see a ‘Record’ button in the in-call UI during an incoming or outgoing phone call. When users will tap on this button, the recording will be automatically initiated. The Record button icon will change thereby indicating that the recording is in progress. Lastly, if you want to end the recording, you will have to tap on the button again and the icon will return to its initial state. The recorded phone calls can be monitored from the call log, as shown in the screenshots below.

Also, when you first activate the call recording feature in the Google Phone app, you’ll see a dialog that states the following: “When using the call recording feature, you are responsible for complying with applicable laws related to the recording of calls. Please be aware that many jurisdictions require the consent of both parties for such recording.”

Google will also play a pre-recorded line to the other parties on the phone call to inform them that you’re recording the call. The other parties will hear “this call is now being recorded” when you begin recording the call, and they’ll hear “call recording has now ended” when you stop recording.


I am a thorough nerd who completely indulges into books when handed one, unless it is a hard-boiled fiction. Apart from reading and surfing shows on Netflix, I love to vent my emotions out through writings.
