The way WhatsApp changed our outlook on text messages as you would seldom need to text someone, it’s fairly convenient to drop a WhatsApp message. Well, WhatsApp has improved its various features over the years and the VoIP feature is one of the best available in the market. You can technically call anyone assuming both have WhatsApp installed on their devices. Simply find the contact, tap on a voice call and it’s done and that’s how effortless it is.
Although recording calls come as a feature on many call recording apps, WhatsApp doesn’t have built-in support for it. Luckily, you can still record WhatsApp calls using certain apps that make it possible to record both sides of the conversation. The use case for recording voice calls on WhatsApp can be millions, be it just for security purposes or for surveillance or it could be as something to remember something. In any case, you need to note that some countries have blocked call recording apps so unless you aren’t in one of those countries, you should be able to record WhatsApp and normal calls pretty easily.
