How to Enable Call Recording on Truecaller

If call recording is legal in your region, you can record incoming/outgoing calls by enabling the recording feature in Truecaller settings. There is also an option for enabling automatic recording so you won’t have to start recording manually for each call.

Note: TrueCaller call recording feature is available only on phones with Android version 8 earlier. The later versions have stronger privacy policies. Therefore, these versions do not allow call recording using TrueCaller as this app doesn’t inform the other person about recorded.
