Google’s Phone app may add support for phone call recording soon

Google has been upgrading all of its mobile apps at a steady clip over the past several years, but one app that hasn’t gotten much attention (and understandably so) is the Phone app. Found on Google Pixels, Android One devices, and some Xiaomi handsets, the Phone app is the app you use to make calls, but thanks to an APK teardown of a recent update by XDA-Developers, a new feature for the app might have been uncovered.

According to XDA’s Mishaal Rahman, version 43.0.289191107 of Google’s Phone app, which rolled out for the Pixel 4 on Tuesday, has a new layout, a new icon, and strings of code that seem to indicate it will soon be possible to push a button during a phone call within the Phone app in order to initiate a recording.
