Record WhatsApp calls to capture important moments

Due to the increase in the expansion of society as well as technology, phone conversations continue to be fleeting, while precious moments might be lost. Fortunately, there are methods by which you can easily and effectively record WhatsApp calls and capture such moments.

Whether it is a business discussion or an informal conversation with friends, this article will help to learn how to record a call on WhatsApp and save such memorable moments.

Can WhatsApp call be recorded by screen recording?

WhatsApp itself does not offer an inbuilt screen recording feature; however, both Android and iPhone offer features for capturing everything on the screen, including WhatsApp calls.

Your phone’s screen recording is similar to a camera; it records the screen activity, including the video and the sound of the call.

Here’s a breakdown:

1. Android: Many Android devices have a built-in screen recorder under the ‘Settings’ option. If not, you can easily download other free third-party screen recording apps from the Google Play Store.

2. iPhone: iPhones also have a screen recording feature in the Control Center. However, ensure that it is on before you proceed to make the WhatsApp call.

How to record WhatsApp calls on Android?

There are two main ways to record WhatsApp calls on Android: either utilizing the built-in screen recording or any online call recorder application.

Method 1: Screen recording

Most Android gadgets have the screen capture option as a standard feature. This is the easiest way to record a call, although it may record only one side of the call.

Here’s how to use it:

1. Locate screen recorder: Swipe down for notification bars, and then you will find the quick settings panel. Looking for a screen recorder icon, it can be located under the More options icon.

2. Start recording (if available): If you see the icon for the screen recorder, tapping it initiates the recording process. A countdown timer should appear before the actual recording starts.

3. Alternatively, access settings: If the icon is missing, go to the personal settings and look for the “screen recording” option. There, you can enable it, along with possible additions like audio choice.

4. Initiate WhatsApp call: When you are ready, you turn on the recorder, open the WhatsApp and proceed to make the call.

5. Stop recording: After completing the call, navigate to the quick setting panel and tap the screen recorder icon to cease the recording. The recording will be saved in the phone’s memory.

Method 2: Third-Party Call Recording App

This method involves downloading a special call recording application from the Google Play Store.

These apps are far more versatile and are often accompanied by additional features like automatic recording and call filtering. Here’s how it works:

1. Download a trusted app: Open the Google Play Store application and type “call recorder” in the search bar. Find an application with many positive reviews and a high rating.

2. Install and grant permissions: Select an app of your choice and then open it to download and start the installation process. During downloads, you need to grant permission for the app as it requires storage and access to the microphone.

3. Configure recording options: Call recorder applications have features that enable users to decide on the recording settings. These include setting the application to record all calls that you make or recording the call and then making the actual WhatsApp call.

4. Record your call: After installing the app, go to make the WhatsApp call. In some applications, this will start the recording process on its own, while in other instances, you must start the recording yourself from the application.

5. Manage recordings: After the call has ended, click on the call recording application to check and sort your calls. You can normally reply to them, forward them, or delete the particular messages.

How to record WhatsApp calls on iPhone?

Although WhatsApp does not call recording, iPhones have the Screen Recording feature which can easily record your WhatsApp call. Here’s how to use it:

1. Enable screen recording: Open your iPhone’s Settings app, go to “Settings,” and then “Control Center.” In the Control Center options, find “Screen Recording” and add it by tapping the “+” button.
