Google disabled call recording by default starting with Android 10, and on May 11, the company will apply new Google Play Store standards prohibiting third-party apps from accessing the Accessibility API to record the call audio stream.

Because call recording rules vary widely around the world, those adjustments are geared toward increased privacy and security. The change will not affect system or pre-installed apps that currently have authorization to use the Accessibility API.

The dialers from Google and Xiaomi, for example, are two outliers to the rule. This is considered a built-in call recording feature. And, while Google hasn’t said how it expects to deal with such issues as well, we should expect some further regulations to be applied in the future.

Stay tuned for more info and let us know in the comment section what you think about the disabled call recordings.
