How to enable call recording on the Samsung Galaxy S22 series

Android users had to rely on third-party apps to record phone calls for the longest time. But these days, almost all Android OEMs natively offer call recording support on their devices, including Samsung. If you’ve recently purchased a Galaxy S22 series device and you’re not sure how to set up call recording on it, you’ve come to the right place. In this post, I’ll guide you through the process of recording phone calls on the Galaxy S22 series phones.

Before we continue, it’s important to note that there are laws against recording phone calls in certain regions. Make sure you follow local regulations and take permission from the other person on the line before recording phone calls. It’s also worth mentioning that the call recording feature is limited to certain regions. Therefore, you might not see the following settings on your device. If that’s the case, you’ll have to use a third-party app to record calls on your phone.

If, for some reason, the feature doesn’t work as intended, you can also record calls using the Google Phone app. To do so, follow the instructions provided in our guide to recording phone calls on Android. The guide also includes detailed instructions for devices from other manufacturers, like OnePlus, OPPO, Samsung, Vivo, and Xiaomi, along with a list of third-party apps that you can use for the same purpose.

    The vanilla Galaxy S22 is a compact flagship featuring a 6.1-inch display and a 3,700mAh battery, and the same camera setup as the Plus.
