Best Android 13 Call Recording Apps

Suppose you’re on a call discussing essential points with your client and taking notes simultaneously. It’s likely that you will miss out on noting down some key points and regret it later on. This is when the call recording features play an essential role. You don’t have to bother yourself with taking notes during a call. Just turn the call recording on and you can listen to the conversation anytime.

While there are many smartphone brands that offer a built-in call recording option, they might not be as feature-rich as the ones we’ve discussed in this article. On some devices, you are required to click the recording button every time you want to record that call. This could be annoying as one can easily forget to press the record button after answering the call. Thankfully, that’s not the case with any of the 10 call recording apps on your Android 13 smartphone.

Best Android 13 call recording apps

Once you’ve made up your mind to install a call recording app, it can be tough to choose one as there are dozens of call recording apps available for an Android phone. Just open the Google Play Store and search for “call recording”. You’ll get a big list of apps doing the same thing. Obviously, you can’t test them all, and therefore choosing one could be a tough job. To help you out, we have created this post to list the 5 best call recording apps for your Android 13 phone.

Google’s Problem With Call Recording on Android

Google has always been against the call recording option on the Android operating system. The tech giant believes that recording calls are an invasion of users’ privacy.

You might have heard the “this call is now being recorded” message as soon as you’ve picked up many phone calls in the past. Google did this to notify both parties that the call was being recorded. This warning message was only available for the Google Phone app. If you wanted the other person to not listen to this warning message, you could have used any third-party call recording app.

Google does not seem to like it as the tech giant and therefore it took a bold step banning all recording apps. Starting May 11, the tech giant banned all call recording apps on the Google Play Store.

You might ask, Google has banned call recording apps, but dozens are still available on the Google Play Store, why? Yes, you are right. A lot of call recording apps are still available on the Play Store, but they won’t offer the call recording feature. I’ve tried a bunch of them to find out the one will work on your Android 13 phone. I thought none of them would work, but surprisingly, an app worked for me. I’ve discussed more on this in the next section.

Best Android 13 Call Recording Apps

1. Call Recorder – Cube ACR

Call Recorder - Cube ACR

This is the only app I found on the Google Play Store to be working on Android 13 phones. I don’t know why and how it works, because, Google has already banned all call-recording apps on the Play Store.

Go to the Google Play Store and download the Call Recorder – Cube ACR app. After installing the app, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Cube ACR app.
  2. Click Next.
  3. Click GRANT PERMISSION and give all permissions.
  4. Tap on ENABLE APP CONNECTOR. You’ll be taken to the Accessibility settings.
  5. Tap on Installed apps, click Cube ACR App Connector, and enable it.
  6. Click Allow.
  7. Allow the app to send notifications.
  8. Disable power optimization for the Cube ACR app.
  9. Allow or skip Geo tagging based on your preference. I don’t recommend it. You can tap on NO, THANKS.
  10. Click the cross icon in the upper-left corner.
  11. Click PHONE.
  12. Make a call to check if the app is working on your phone.

2. Use Built-In Call Recording

Many people don’t know that the phone app (on most smartphones) has a built-in call recording feature. They rush to the Google Play Store to get an app that will do the job.

If you have a Realme, Oppo, Vivo, Poco, Xiaomi, Redmi, OnePlus, Tecno, or Samsung phone, go to the phone app and enable the call recording option.

Google has also clarified that its new policy on call recording apps only applies to the apps on the Google Play Store. The built-in call recording will have no impact.

Final Thoughts

Call recording is important as you don’t know when you’ll miss out on a point during the call. But, the new Google Policies have made using a third-party call recording app on an Android phone difficult. Still, there are ways to use it on your Android 13 phone, which we went through in this post. I hope this guide was useful to you.

If you still can’t record calls on your Android 13 phone, do let us know in the comments section below.


  1. Using Android 13, I can record, but it’s recording a lot of reverb – to the point where the recording is not usable. I tried all the different VoIP recording audio sources, but none worked without reverb. I tried standing in different locations, away from all other things that might interfere, but nothing seemed to help.

    1. Same for me too. I tried all recording applications but none worked on my Samsung A13 operating on Android version 13

  2. Getting a lot of reverb on Android 13 – not usable. I tried all the VoIP recording audio sources, but none were good.

  3. I’m using Google pixel7pro in India but still I haven’t got the feature of record in Google phone itself is there a walkaround to get the feature and no other 3rd party app is suiting to the best quality of record please help me in order to avail the built in feature of call record

    1. I m not getting in built option of call recording in my samsung mobile for android 13 version. Please let me know

      1. Some countries (e.g. Australia where I live) restrict, for privacy reasons, mobile phones sold in that country from having an inbuilt call recorder option. I found this out when I bought my Samsung S20 Ultra which, when I researched it online (a site in the U.S.A), indicated an inbuilt call recorder. Unfortunately, in the Australian version, this option is missing. If that’s the case, your only option is to install a call recorder app. Cube ACR works on my phone (Android 13) but also requires an extension app, Cube ACR Helper, to make it fully functional. I hope this helps.


  4. Cube not working on Android 13 in US. Not even giving the option to access the step “enable app connector”.

    1. I found that to make Cube ACR fully functional on Android 13, I had to download the “Cube ACR Helper” app. Afer you launch it, it will guide you through the setup and activation of app permissions and give you the option to “GO TO APP CONNECTOR”. Depending on your brand and model of phone, this will give you the option make Cube ACR App Connector accessible on your phone and link it Cube ACR. After I did this, I found that Cube ACR was able to record calls. I hope this assists you and works on your phone.


  5. I’ve been using a recorder by Skvalex for years on a rooted Pixel running android 12. Zero issues and works like a charm. Will prob upgrade to Android 13 soon. I’ve tested many over the years. Takeaways… (1) attempting on a Samsung is futile. Total waste of time. (2) The recorder bundled in Android … Never got that to work. Get a Pixel. Go to YouTube University and follow a rooting walkthrough. Live life happily ever after.

  6. Still not getting the other side of the conversation on Samsung Galaxy A13 5G running Android 13. The Cube ACR App Connector is enabled in the Installed apps of the Accessibility settings. Any help would be appreciated.

  7. We’re using Infinix’s and Tecno’s latest model Android 13 phones. And As of this May 2023 after an official OTA Firmware update, the built-in ACR feature of these phones was gone. It was working fine before the May 2023 update.
