Many of you wanted to turn off the annoying sounds of “this call is not being recorded”! Aww, that sucks, right?
Google Dialer has policies that cause this; previously, it didn’t have this feature of call recording innocence, but in the past few years, it’s been there!
Picture this: You are calling your friend, saying, “Hey bro, when are you going to give my money back?” You want his statement recorded, so you hit the record call button on the Google phone app. It then says, “This call is now being recorded.” Your friend might think you don’t trust him, so he may also lose your trust.
To avoid all these scenarios today, 3 solutions to stop call announcements or call recording sounds on any device.
Surprisingly, one of the solutions would disable call announcements in Google phones (google’s dialer app).
And a few unique tricks you can do which will save you from the call recording without announcement.
Here’s the summary of all three things; read any solution you like more.
Acknowledgment: Before we delve into the steps, we thank the Tech Facts in Telugu channel for sharing this wonderful trick that works on various Android devices. Their contribution to this topic is truly appreciated.
Open the Play Store and search for “Google Dialer.” Once found, open the app and tap on “Uninstall.” This will remove the latest version and revert the app to the older version that originally came with your device. This step is necessary as Google has patched the workaround in the latest version.
Ensure you tap the three-dot menu in the top-right corner of the Play Store and disable the “Enable auto-update” checkbox for Google Dialer. This prevents the app from being automatically updated to the latest version. Remember, for this method to work, it’s crucial to keep Google Dialer on the older version.
First, install a TTSLexx (Text-to-Speech) application on your Android device. You can find the TTS app by searching for it on the Google Play Store and installing it for free.
Once you have installed the TTS app, go to your device’s settings and find the “Text-to-Speech” option. The location of this option may vary depending on your device’s manufacturer and Android version. It is typically found under “Accessibility” or “Additional Settings.”
You will see a list of available TTS engines within the Text-to-Speech settings. By default, it is usually set to the system’s default engine, such as Google Text-to-Speech. However, after installing the TTS app, you should see it as an option. Select the TTS engine to set it as your preferred choice.
Next, it’s time to clear the cache and data of the Google Dialer app. To do this, go to your device’s settings, locate the “Apps” or “Application Manager” section, find the Google Dialer app, and tap on it. From there, select the options to clear the cache and clear data for the app.
Now, let’s test the call recording without the pre-announcement. Make a call to any number and switch to the loudspeaker mode. Open the Google Dialer app during the call and tap the “Record Call” option. You should no longer notice a pre-announcement indicating that the call is being recorded.
- Uninstall the latest version of Google Dialer.
- Disable auto-update for Google Dialer.
- Install the TTS (Text-to-Speech) application.
- Adjust Text-to-Speech settings in device settings.
- Select the preferred TTS engine.
- Clear cache and data of the Google Dialer app.
- Test call recording without pre-announcement.
The traditional dialer applications on Android or iOS do not allow switching between other dialer applications, which means you cannot easily switch to an app that enables call recording. However, there is a catch.
Recently, Google Play Store has implemented a policy change that does not allow any app to record calls without announcing it to both parties involved. This means you will only find an application on the Google Play Store that records voice calls if you notify users that the call is being recorded.
You can search for alternatives on the internet to work around this restriction. Some apps outside the Google Play Store allow call recording without needing a modified version. However, I don’t recommend using modified applications, which can often cause more harm than good.
While I can’t provide specific examples of these apps, you can perform a search on Google to find suitable options. I trust that you are smart enough to do so, and that’s all I can suggest.
Now, for Solution 3, you can try using the screen recording feature, which is helpful. Additionally, you can use another smartphone to record the voice during the call.
Having a second phone for recording may not always be feasible, but the screen recording feature that captures audio and video can serve the purpose. Alternatively, you can explore the use of booster applications that bypass restrictions and allow you to record voice calls.
However, please remember that such applications may only sometimes be reliable or recommended due to potential risks.
Please note that the following instructions may only work on some devices, as the availability and functionality of screen recording features can vary.
Additionally, screen recording may not capture audio on certain devices or operating systems. It’s always recommended to check your device’s user manual or consult the manufacturer’s website for specific instructions and compatibility.
Remember to always comply with local laws and regulations regarding call recording. Ensure you have consent from all parties involved in the call and respect your jurisdiction’s privacy and legal restrictions.
