Recording Calls

Due to changes in Google’s policies, call recording is no longer supported by Eyecon except in some specific cases.   But with our new version, we have added the feature of record calls to the some phones.  

Do you meet the qualifications?

  • You downloaded Eyecon when call recording was a supported feature.
  • You are still using the same phone.
  • Your phone is running Android OS 5 – 8.

In addition, please be aware of additional factors to using the record call feature. 

On Android = 9 devices, the feature will be disabled.

On Android <= 8 devices, the requirement is Storage, Audio recording permissions.

On Android => 10 devices, the feature also required Accessibility permission.

If your answer is yes to the above and the above applies, then continue reading:

Can I update Eyecon and keep call recording?

Yes, you can.

Where has the call record icon gone? 

Please look on the history page. The call record icon has moved to the top left. 

What are the different call record settings?

Users can choose from the following call recording modes:

  • Automatic – all calls are automatically saved for 7 days. When you click the “pin” they will be saved indefinitely unless manually deleted.
  • Manual – if you set Eyecon as the default dialer then you can save the record on the Call screen or on the After call.
  • Disabled – phone calls will not be recorded.

Our high-quality automatic call recording works on incoming and outgoing calls.

Accessibility permissions can turn off by the OS automatic (note that you must enable it for the “call recorder” to work).

Calls are kept on your device for 7 days and then deleted if not saved. All recordings are only saved on the individual user’s device. (Android Pie not supported).

Note that recordings are not uploaded to Eyecon’s servers and we never read / process recordings.

Saving Recorded Calls

All recordings are temporarily saved automatically and can be accessed from clicking the call recorder icon from the history page.
If you want to permanently save a recording, click the “pin” on the photo or save the recording from the screen shown after calls.
You can use our “share” feature to back up your recordings to whatever Cloud storage you use.

We need “record audio” and “storage” permissions in order to store the call recordings on external storage.
