Every time you make a call you don’t think that you can record it. This is normal, as you may not need this feature until a certain time. The fact is that there are phones that have this feature integrated as standard in their operating system, while others depend directly on an application that they must download. However, this will no longer be possible very soon on Android as we will soon say goodbye to the apps to record calls in the Google Play Store.

The other point of its measures is that the operating system will be able to block this type of apps if they are recognized as installed on the terminal, to the point of eliminating them if necessary. As if it were an app that has been detected with a virus.

But there is a fine print in which users of certain phones are exempt. It turns out that the measure does not take into account the fact that there are terminals with this feature installed as standard. These devices correspond to both Google in its Pixel range and Xiaomi.
