Google Bar Call Recording on Android 9 Pie
Some third-party app developers have announced that their apps will not be able to record calls on Android 9 and above because Google has turned off this feature.
Google has made many changes and additions to the Android ecosystem, including the latest Android 9 Pie. Almost all of these changes were made to help users become more productive, while adding to their overall security and privacy. However, some users may find one of these changes unpleasant because the company has made it impossible for the call recording app to work on devices running Android Pie until they have rooted their device. According to a report by PunikiaWeb, through XDA developers, third party developers of well-known call recording apps like CallRecorder – ACR and BoldBeast Android Call Recorder have confirmed that their app will not work on Android 9 and above until the device is rooted.
To recall, Google has hit the official call recording API with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The only way to get the feature was through third party applications because the developers were still able to come up with a solution. However, with Android Pie, Google has blocked workouts, and according to third-party app developers, Google has “added more call recording limits” and discovered that allowing Android 8.1 Orio to record calls is off. Rooting can enable the feature using their app. However, it is a complex process that can be inconvenient for a large number of users and not to mention, rooting will void the warranty of an Android device.
It’s been almost a week since Google announced the final build of Android 9 Pie for its Pixel series smartphones. The new operating system comes with built-in support for display with a notch, new navigation methods and several changes in visibility. Android Pie brings many new features and changes to the existing Android Orio ecosystem such as adaptive battery, adaptive brightness, app action and much more.
