OK so I'm fed up with Samsung and there in ability to help in anyway, I have just purchased a UK Huawei P30 Pro and I've tried 3 different recording apps (ACR, ACR CUBE AND Boldbeast) I'm glad to report back they ALL WORK!
To add to this further
Faster charging etc etc....
Sorry Samsung but until you sort this out for Countries where call recording is totally legal like you have done in others! I will unfortunately never buy another Samsung product.
I hope that helps at least some of you who desperately need a new phone that requires a working call recorder.
Good for you. If that' was the only issue with Samsung for me.... At my country is not illegal so i believe call recording will work fine. I am thinking about huawei p30 pro too!
It's not down to Samsung, it's to do with Google removing the permission to record, its affecting ALL recording apps. It's affecting those on the pie system, oreo and nougat will still work. I don't know why Google think they're the police on this matter, as we don't all use our phones for illegal purposes. I use it as I don't always catch a phone number or address, and to protect myself as I have had a lot of scam calls one threatening me one time, which put the fear of God into me. I have cancelled my subscription to one as it's only recording me and not the other party due to this stupid change. I can't see why we can't record or calls when we get recorded via businesses. Hopefully someone can find a workaround, at the moment Google closed the previous workaround. They may put an update out but it seems will only come with the new release of Q, they may not reimplement it though. Don't forget Google has been fined due to privacy laws.
Nothing to do with Samsung. All android phones use Google software and it is google who have stopped this. They obviously want American phones like Iphone not to lag behind as you have to pay monthly for this facility on iphone. Shame on gogle
It is totally to do with Samsung as they have built in software for call recording which currently only works in India it's all to do with the CSC on the device which can be changed.
Samsung simply can't be bothered in checking individual countries to allow this feature, it would be a lot of different software.
The Huawei P30 pro I've purchased in the UK works with third party applications which was a nice surprise however the phone wasn't for me so I've decided to send it back.
If you read the whole thread it explains in detail what's happened to recording featurs and Google's policy.
Not sure if my first reply went through so here I go again (possibly)
The P30 pro was an amazing phone and it was able to record calls using third party applications, the issue I had with the phone was the pictures it took, my IPhone XS Max and Samsung S8+ In the day the pictures in my opinion were better however the P30 was amazing at night but I take a lot of pictures during the day.
Before you get one go to a store and try it out make sure your happy with it in hand.
