Truecaller is a smartphone app that has features of caller identification, call-blocking, flash-messaging, call-recording, Chat & Voice by using the Internet. It needs users to provide a standard cellular mobile number for registering with the service. The app is available for Android and iOS.

Recently Truecaller announced that it is bringing the call recording feature to its Android and iOS apps. The company first introduced this feature in 2018 but due to Google’s Accessibility API, it had to remove the feature from the app. Although API restrictions still exist and enabling call recording isn’t as easy as it used to be once, Truecaller has come up with a devised workaround to get around the OS limitations and offer call recording on its app. This time the feature is available on both Android as well as ios devices.

What is Call Recording Feature?

Truecaller’s call recording feature allows you to record incoming and outgoing calls on your Android and iPhone using the Truecaller app. By default, all recordings are locally stored on your device but can back them up to the cloud for reference. One can also listen, rename, share, and delete recordings from your device as and when required.

Truecaller provides a summarized transcript of the call recording in the form of text using LLM so you can easily navigate it and find bits and pieces in your conversation. For now, Call Recording is exclusive to Truecaller Premium, so you need to have a subscription to enable call recording.

Truecaller app plans

Truecaller offers monthly and annual premium subscription plans.

  • Premium Connect is most affordable priced at Rs. 75 per month.
  • Premium Assistant is priced at Rs. 99 per month or Rs. 999 per year.
  • Premium Family Plan can be used on up to 4 additional devices, priced at Rs. 132/month or Rs. 925/ year.

How Does Truecaller’s New Call Recording Feature Work?

Both Google & Apple have restrictions in place on Android and ios, respectively, to prevent apps from recording phone calls on their operating systems natively.

Truecaller gets around these restrictions by using tech from CallHero, a company it acquired last year. Truecaller uses a technology called “recording line” from a cloud telephony provider, wherein it records the call on the cloud and sends it back to the device once the call ends.

Many services have attempted this previously, but what separates Truecaller’s approach is that it doesn’t save recordings to the cloud; instead, it keeps everything stored locally on the device to ensure absolute privacy.

How to Record Calls on Android using Truecaller

If you are an Android user, you can use the new recording button on the Truecaller dialer to record calls. This lets you record both incoming and outgoing calls on your device.

  • To record an incoming or outgoing call with Truecaller, once a call is active, tap the record button to start recording.
  • You can tap the button again to stop recording at any point.
  • Once the call ends. Truecaller will send a push notification alerting you that the recorded conversation is available.
  • If you are using another dialer on your Android device, Truecaller will give you a floating recording button on the screen. Tap on this button to start recording an incoming or outgoing call.

How to Record Calls on iPhone using Truecaller

If you are on iOS, the call recording process is a little complex and involves a series of steps.

For an Incoming Call

  • Pick up the incoming call on your iPhone.
  • Open the Truecaller app and go to the Search Tab.
  • Tap the Record a Call button and hit Call the Recording Line to call the recording line.
  • Tap on the Merge calls buttons to merge the two calls.

For an Outgoing Call

  • Open the Truecaller and head to the Search tab.
  • Tap on Record a Call and hit the Call The Recording Line button to call the recording line.
  • Hit the Add Call button and call the number/person with whom you want to take and record the conversation.
  • Tap the Merge Calls button to merge both calls, and Truecaller will start recording the call.
