Call recorder apps have been used by both Android and iPhone users to keep voice recordings of calls for business, legal, security, or other reasons. Using call recorder apps is not legal in every country, and after the Android Pie update, Google banned call recorder apps. So, it is now difficult to find one that works well on Android phones. We’ve gathered the best apps that worked on some phones, but we can’t be certain they’ll work on yours. So, you may have to get more than one of these apps until you find the ones that work. Let’s take a look at the top 12 best call recorders apps for Android.
1. Automatic Call Recorder by RSA
Automatic Call Recorder by Recorder & Smart Apps is one of the best call recording apps on Google Play Store with an average rating of 4.6. With this app, you can easily organize the call recordings saved on your phone. Although it automatically records your call, it doesn’t save them immediately. It asks you if you want to save the recording at the end of each call. So, you don’t have junk stored on your phone. Automatic Call Recorder by RSA does not support cloud integration, but you can share your recordings via Skype, Google, and Dropbox among others. It also supports ads, but if they disturb you, you can upgrade to the pro version.
2. Cube Call Recorder ACR
Cube Call Recorder ACR should be our #1 call recorder app for Android. Apart from recording your normal phone calls, this app also lets you record calls on Android from other VoIP services such as Facebook, Whatsapp, Skype, Viber, IMO, Line, Hangouts, Telegram, and Slack. However, not every device can access the VoIP call recording feature. So, you have to install it first to see if it works on your phone. Compared to other free call recording apps, this one doesn’t display any ads when recording your calls. So, you get the best call recording experience for free. Also, it is one of the best WhatsApp call recorders out there.
3. Call Recorder – ACR
Call Recorder – ACR is one of the best apps you can use on your Android phones. You may even want to try it first because it works on almost all phones we tried it with. With this app, you can record your incoming and outgoing calls without having to go to the app first. It also supports cloud integration, so you can easily save your recordings on OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, WebDAV, and FTP. You can also send your recordings to your email. The free version of Call Recorder – ACR has ads, but you can buy the pro version to remove them.
4. Call Recorder by Lovekara
Call Recorder by Lovekara is another free call recorder app that lets you automatically record your calls. You can also save all recordings to your phone storage or SD card. However, it doesn’t allow you to store your recordings on the cloud. One thing we didn’t like about this app is that there are too many ads, and there’s no premium version to remove them. However, since you wouldn’t be spending hours on the app, the ads shouldn’t be a problem. It is also free and does its work well.
Most of us use Truecaller as a caller ID app, but it can do much more than that. Truecaller also has a call recording feature. If you’re already using Truecaller, you don’t have to get any other app on this list. You may not have noticed the call recording feature because it doesn’t come with the free version. You get it when you subscribe to Truecaller’s premium plan. To try it out and see if you will like it, you can use the call recorder for free for 14 days.
6. Call Recorder by Top Weather Studios
Top Weather Studios created a call recording app that comes with so many presets. The options are out there, and we love it. It is one of the few apps that give you options such as recording calls from contacts, ignoring calls from contacts, ignoring all calls, and recording all calls. So, you don’t have to record unnecessary calls – only important ones. You also have the option to manually record your calls, since you don’t have to listen to all calls for a second time. After recording, you can save your recordings in MP3 format and store them on your SD card or even Google Drive. You can also send your recordings via email.
mSpy is not only a call recorder but also a total spying solution for Android users. Now, we all know that the implication of spying might sound immoral, but today the cyber threat is a reality, and the more we can do to safeguard our data, the better. Hence, mSpy is for those who want to track their smartphones in case of theft, record calls to identity thefts, or any other security solution. Not only call recording, but the app can also monitor your WhatsApp messages, SMS, and other social media accounts. And all this data is encrypted to prevent any misuse.
Other features include Keyword blacklisting, remote web traffic blocking, keystroke mapping, and even tracking multimedia inflow and outflow. Its parental feature is truly remarkable, and it can help parents understand that their wards do online without incurring any doubts. However, the service isn’t cheap, and the lowest plan starts at $11.66 per month.

10. RMC: Android Call Recorder
RMC: Android Call Recorder has the most features you’ll see on any call recorder app on the Google Play Store. One of the things we like about it is its versatility in saving your recordings. You can anonymously record your voice calls in various formats including 3GP, MP4, and AMR. Also, you don’t have to go to the app when a call comes in. It automatically records all your incoming and outgoing calls. When you delete your recordings, you don’t lose them. Instead, they are stored in the trash folder that comes with the app. So, you can find them if they were accidentally deleted.
This call recorder also allows you to fully customize your sample rate, bit rate, and recording channels. Its seamless cloud integration allows you to store your files on Google Drive or Dropbox.
11. All Call Recorder Lite 2020
All Call Recorder Lite is a good app for people looking for a call recorder app with simple features – nothing too serious. This app allows you to manually activate or deactivate your incoming or outgoing call recordings. It also has its own audio player which you use to play the recordings whenever you want. It’s a basic app, so you can’t store your files on the cloud or move them to your SD card. If you need an app that won’t take so much space on your phone and still record calls you may need in the nearest future, you can get this one.
Cocospy is another tool that can efficiently surveil and record calls, has parental control, and real-time phone monitoring. The app not only records the call but presents every detail with additional information such as a time stamp, logging, call frequency, and even duration. But the app is even better at location monitoring and is ideal for businesses and parents. However, the iOS version is a bit costlier than the Android.
