Many apps claim to record phone calls on Android, but few actually deliver them. There are just too many different devices available for an app to support them all – at least that's what it seems.
The Boldbeast Software development team may have solved this problem with a highly customizable call recording app that can be configured for just about any Android phone. This may sound a bit complicated, but for most phones, setup is as easy as it gets – in most cases, even root is not required.
Before you begin recording calls, you should first check if it is legal in your state. While federal law allows the recording of telephone calls and personal conversations with the consent of at least one of the parties (eg you), these laws may vary from state to state. For example, in California, there is a two-party consent law, which means that you must obtain permission from the other person (s) before you can start recording.
The app that brings call recording functionality to most Android devices is called Boldbeast Call Recorder and is available for free in the Google Play Store. Locate the app by name to install it, or go directly to the installation page at the following link:
On most phones, Boldbeast Call Recorder simulates a Bluetooth connection to record audio. This means that in most cases, you do not need to be rooted to use the app. All you have to do is open the app and accept the license terms.
If your phone is in the following list: means you can walk well, so go to step 4 to see how to record calls. Otherwise, if your device is not listed here, you probably need to be rooted to record calls. Therefore, read the instructions in step 3. Exceptions are phones that are over two years old or that are not sold in the United States, which are not listed below and may work without root.

Step 3: Configuring Boldbeast (Rooted Phones Without Native Support)
If your device is not in the list above, you probably have rooted it be to use Boldbeast Call Recorder. If so, on the main screen of the app, click "Settings" and select "Call settings" on the following page. Select "Troubleshoot issues" when you're on the Call Settings page.
Next, tap the "Enable root options" entry and then tap "Enable" in the confirmation prompt that appears. Now Boldbeast Call Recorder is asking for superuser access, so tap "Grant" in the popup to enable root options in the app.
At this point you need to return to the main menu to make some settings options. However, with the plethora of Android devices from a sea of manufacturers, there simply is not any universal configuration that will apply to all of them. However, you will find the specific settings for your Android on the developer's forum page on this topic. From there, just look for the thread to your device for more instructions.
Step 4: Record Calls
With everything set up, recording phone calls is incredibly easy. Just start with your normal phone or dialer app – at this point you will notice a small "recording" button in the upper left corner of your phone screen. Simply tap this button to record the phone call and both sides of the phone call will be recorded in crystal clear quality.
When you're done recording the call , just hang up the phone or tap the hovering "Record" button again.
Step 5: Access Recordings  If you would like to hear call records in the future, just open the Boldbeast Call Recorder app and then click Call History on the main page to view your recordings. Tap Record on the next page, select "Playback" from the displayed menu screen, and press the Playback button in the lower right corner to hear it.
As you can see from the screenshots below There are many options that you can access next to "Playback". For example, "Delete" to delete a recording and free up space, "Rename", which supports sorting and context, and so on. It is worth noting that you find the MP3 or MP4 files stored in the com.boldbeast.recorder folder on the SD card or in the internal memory of your device if you have a printed copy of a device Want to receive record
