Call Recorder - FAQ

As per the new Google Developer Policy, we have to discontinue the call recording function in Truecaller, effective 11 May 2022. Thus, support for the call recording feature has been dropped with Truecaller v11.25. Note: Call Recording on Android 8 and below (v6, 7 & 8 will work as expected, where we don’t need accessibility permission as such.)

Important: In certain countries, there is a legal requirement to inform or obtain consent before recording a call and in certain countries, it may not be allowed. By using this feature, you accept any and all responsibility arising from the use of this feature and required compliance with applicable laws.
