There are many call recording apps on the Play Store but finding the best is not an easy job. Here are the 20 best call recording apps you can use in 2020.

People use call recording feature for many reasons. Some use it for security, some to save the voice of their loved once. But all smartphones do not come with this feature in-built. That is when you need to look for third party solutions.

Disclaimer: Android 9.0 Pie restricted many features that third-party apps can use and one of those is call recording. But in Android 10 those features are reinstated.
