WhatsApp not just lets you send messages, it also lets you make calls. Calling on WhatsApp is pretty common, especially now when nearly everyone is connected to the internet. While WhatsApp is on its way to becoming the default calling app for many, there is one thing it lacks, call recording. Although recording calls is subject to your local laws, which you should follow to avoid any legal action, people sometimes need it. Despite the limitation of WhatsApp’s mobile apps, there are some ways to record your WhatsApp calls. With some extra effort, you can record WhatsApp calls.
Recording WhatsApp calls on Android and iOS need different steps. While Android, because of its open-source nature, lets third-party apps take control of your call recordings on WhatsApp, iOS, being a closed ecosystem, has a different resort. But before that, a fair warning. Recording calls without the consent of the other party is not advised — and is illegal in some countries. India does not have legislation as such, but there are some guidelines based on other related laws. You should refrain from recording calls without informing or seeking permission from the person involved.
