Google does a really good job when it comes to updating new features to Google Phones. They have already added features that stop spam calls, added Assistant to screen calls from strange numbers, and many more. Now it is aiming at the feature that enables the recording of calls in certain countries and unknown numbers.
After going through the features updated in the Google Phone, XDA found code strings that mention automatic call recording from any call that isn’t in your contacts list. On one hand, just like it may appear as a privacy-intrusion to you, on the other hand, it particularly instills a sense of security in you.
This feature might be found really really helpful to protect a large number of people, especially women, who fall into the traps of an unknown person. This can help them to track such evils down later after they’re messed up or are unable to gather enough proof, just because they forget to turn the record on.
You can activate this feature when it may show up for supported phones or countries with a message for permission that reads, “Always record calls with numbers not in your contacts?” There is likely to be a toggle in Phone settings to turn it off or on as well.
Because this subject of call recording varies legally depending on where you are, Google will show a disclaimer as you try and enable it saying:
“You or the other person in your call might be somewhere that requires everyone to consent to being recorded. Everyone will be notified ahead of time that the call is being recorded. It’s up to you to follow laws about recording conversations. Recordings are stored only on your phone.”
Once enabled, it will record and store each call that comes from a number, not belonging to your contacts.
If this is rolling out officially or not, if yes then which are the places where it will be available, is still uncertain. But we can definitely say that this is a great initiative of Google to enhance security.
