Samsung has rolled out a new update for Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus users which brings support for native call recording. The latest build number is G960FXXU1BRE5 and G965FXXU1BRE3 and is rolling out to users in Russia, Switzerland, Spain, Romania, Netherlands, and the UK. The update will roll out to other countries as well depending on the location and carrier.

The update contains the usual bug fixes and performance improvements as well as the ability to record calls. However, do remember that the option to record calls won’t be coming to all the regions. This depends on your region’s call recording and wire-tapping laws and even if you get this update, it’s always advisable to notify the other party that the call is being recorded. Recording calls without consent from the other party is considered illegal in many countries. This is why OEMs don’t usually add call recording feature on all the phones.

That said, if you’re still interested in recording calls then there are plenty of apps on the Google Play Store. I use ACR to record calls when needed. It is available for free with the option of paying $0.99 to unlock all the features. However, you will still need consent before recording the calls. So if Samsung doesn’t enable call recording in your region then you can use these third-party apps from the Google Play Store.
