How to record phone calls on Windows 10 Mobile

Windows 10 Mobile allows you to record phone calls very easily, but the feature is disabled and buried by default. Here are the steps to enable the feature to record your voice calls.

Windows 10 Mobile allows you to record phone calls for whatever your reason might be. The support for voice call recording is disabled by default, but you can easily enable it on the Settings app.

Before proceeding with this guide, it’s important to note that you must understand that you have legal responsibility before recording any call. As the record call feature warns “you need to get consent from everyone on a call beforehand. The same applies for any other app that lets you record audio.”

  4. During the phone call, you can tap the Record button to begin recording the conversation. (At any time during the call you can tap the Record button again to stop the recording.)

  5. Make sure you understand the risks of recording a call and tap Record. Also, check the Do not show again option to stop seeing the message on future recordings.

  6. Once the call ends, tap the settings menu, and tap Recorded Calls.

  7. Tap the recorded call to listen. (You can also do some light editing if you need to.)

  8. You can also play the recorded call on your phone by opening the app (e.g., Voice Recorder) and tap to play the recorded call.

That’s all there is to it.

Keep in mind that the ability to record phone calls is only available for handsets that are pre-loaded with Windows 10 Mobile, such as Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL. However, in the future, Microsoft may bring the feature to other phones.
