WhatsApp Calls is one of its most used feature.

But, there’s no call recording feature present in the app yet.

Call recording can be useful in many cases, especially when you want to recall some talks with your friends or maybe you want a proof of some talks you did on WhatsApp.

There are lots of apps to record your normal phone talks, but very less are present to record WhatsApp calls.

In this post, I’ve curated those apps that’ll help you to record WhatsApp Calls easily.

WhatsApp Is Found Out to Be Already Recording Your Calls and Storing It on Your Phone

If you might have noticed it, there’s a sub-folder in your WhatsApp folder (in your SD Card) called as “WhatsApp Calls“.

This was recently discussed (in May 2015) on reddit in a thread where users have discovered WhatsApp recording the phone calls and storing it on your phone.

But, this is not the case with all the users.

Although almost all the users have the “WhatsApp Calls” folder in their SD Card inside WhatsApp’s main folder, while many of them have reported that the folder is empty.

So, if you’re lucky enough, you will find the WhatsApp recordings in this folder.

In my case, the folder was empty.

The Reddit thread discloses that the recording contains only the voice of the person with whom you are talking to; it doesn’t contains your voice in it.

Using 3rd Party Apps to Record WhatsApp Calls on Android Smartphone

If you’re lucky enough to have those recording right there in your phone, then you don’t need any third party apps (when you only want the voice the person you’re talking with).
