Although there will be privacy issues, there is no denying that phone recording can sometimes protect yourself. Although Google announced in 2020 that it will natively add this feature to Android, the progress of the implementation is quite slow. Until a few days ago, two websites stated that their Pixel mobile phone program has a call recording option. It seems that Google is preparing to introduce this long-awaited feature to all Pixel mobile phone users.
The report found that one of the netizens with the phone recording function uses a Pixel 3XL mobile phone, and the other uses a Pixel 4a, and the “Google Phone” program they use is a Beta version. They posted some screenshots, showing that the “Call recording” option was added to the settings of the “Google Phone” program, in which users can choose to automatically record incoming calls with unknown numbers, or choose to automatically record calls with a specified number. In addition, you can also set to automatically remove recordings at regular intervals, such as 7th, 14th, or 30th.
In the call screen, there will be an extra recording button. If the user presses it, the series will pop up a reminder to remind the user that some countries or regions may need to obtain the consent of the other party before recording the phone call, otherwise it may violate the law. It also reminds users that they should only record when necessary. The user must agree to start recording.
However, it is known that this feature is subject to regional restrictions, and one of the netizens who reported this feature lives in India, but neither the UK nor France has this feature. Since the telephone recording function is very useful for many people, some manufacturers such as Xiaomi, Nokia, Motorola have added this function by themselves. It is unknown whether this feature will appear on Pixel phones in Hong Kong in the future.
