How to Record Whatsapp Calls on Android [Audio & Video]

Want to record Whatspp audio or video call? Here are some of the easiest methods to record Whatsapp calls on Android phone.

Oftentimes, recording audio calls on Whatsapp becomes a pressing need. We human beings tend to forget the tiny details with each passing moment, and if the conversation has happened over call, you don’t even have a tracking record where you could go back and confirm by reading the conversation.

The recording also becomes important when you don’t want to miss the microscopic details, especially if it’s an instruction call from your client, any interview you are conducting, or a lecture of some sort.

Whatsapp doesn’t allow you to record calls with the app itself. But with a few easy steps and techniques, you can record incoming and outgoing audio calls. You may also like to check how to run TikTok on Google and Android TV.

How to Record Whatsapp Calls on Android [Audio & Video]

Before recording audio calls, a word of caution is that it may not be legal to record the call, so you can’t use it as evidence against someone. And ethically, you should ask permission before recording any audio call.

There are two ways of recording audio Whatsapp calls.

  • Without using any app
  • By using third-party apps

Downloading Whatsapp Calls Without Using any App

Method 1: Using Social Turbo Option

Tecno and Infinix mobiles have the “Social Turbo” option. It’s a powerful Whatsapp assistant that enhances your Whatsapp experience by letting you download Whatsapp audio calls without hassle.

  • Enable the Social Turbo option by going into mobile settings.
  • Now, open Whatsapp, and call anyone.
  • You will see an option of recording. Touch the button to start call recording.
  • Stop recording by touching the same option again in the middle of the call or after the call ends.

Method 2: Using Built-in Voice Recording App

Most android phones have a built-in voice recording app that you can use to record Whatsapp voice calls.

  • First, go to your Whatsapp and start the call.
  • Now, if your mobile allows multitasking, you can navigate to the voice recorder without dropping the call.
  • Press the “record” button to start recording the call.
  • But you will have to use the speakerphone so the recording app can capture the other side’s voice too.
  • The catch is that the recorded sound wouldn’t be as clear as you would wish it to be. For better audio quality, you can download third-party apps to record Whatsapp audio calls.

Recording Whatsapp Video Calls

Just like audio calls, Whatsapp doesn’t have a native feature to record video calls, but you can use alternative video recording methods.

Many Android phones have a built-in screen recording feature with which you can record Whatsapp video calls too. However, you can’t download audio with this feature on some phones even if you play with the audio settings. Installing an app eases the process of recording video calls with audio from both sides.

Using AZ Video Record

  • Install AZ Video Recorder From Google Play Store.
  • Allow display over other apps. Also, permit storage access and turn on the audio recording before making a video call.
  • When you launch the app, you will see an icon and four options pop up on the screen. The options are for accessing the recording library, customizing settings, choosing a live platform, and starting the screen recording.
  • This small widget can be moved anywhere on the screen.
  • You can pause or stop the video by touching the icon again.
  • You can also select output video quality from the settings.

 Final Words!

These are a few methods with which you record Whatsapp calls. But don’t use it for unlawful matters or to expose other people’s privacy, else it may be punishable by law, depending on the state laws where you reside.
