If you like the idea of being able to record your phone calls, you might be interested to learn that according to an APK teardown by the folks at XDA Developers, they have found evidence within the Google Phone app that call recording could soon be coming to the app.

For those unfamiliar, the Google Phone app is the default dialer application for the Google Pixel phones and phones under the Android One program. It is also preinstalled on Xiaomi phones sold in Europe, which means that these changes could be a pretty big deal for quite a number of users.

Call recording on Android devices isn’t exactly new. Previously, there were apps on Android that allowed users to record phone calls, but Google closed those workarounds. These changes suggest that Google could be bringing the feature back in a more official capacity. Google has yet to officially confirm anything, but XDA speculates that this feature could be aimed more towards Xiaomi users.

This is because call recording was available with the stock MIUI dialer application, at least until it was replaced by the Google Phone app. Xiaomi later promised that the feature would be coming back, and it looks like this is how the feature will be returning. We have no word on when the feature will be rolled out, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more information.
