Nowadays, most smartphones support voice calling option over Wi-Fi, which helps people avoid network issues. And now, this calling mode is gaining a highly in-demand feature that many people tend to use. It has been reported that Samsung Galaxy users can record calls made via VoWiFi mode.
The capability arrives via the latest One UI 6.1 build, which is based on Android 14 and will be available for older Galaxy devices in the coming months.
Google’s version of Android no longer lets you record calls, but other versions of the Android UI, such as One Ui, OxygenOS, and ColorOS, have the feature. Now, Samsung users get it for VoWiFi calling too, and other brands that use Android’s custom UI will likely expand support in the near future.
If you have a Samsung Galaxy phone that has a UI update for Android version 14, you need to update the Galaxy dialer app to version 15.1.66 or even newer. The new version is only available to those who have purchased the Galaxy S24 models released in 2024.
Call recording has become a privacy issue for many, which is why Google decided to remove support from the stock version of Android, meaning Pixel users can’t use the feature. That said, there are some positives to recording calls, especially if you want it as evidence for one reason or another.
Galaxy phone users running One Ui 6.0 or earlier will mention that call recording over VoWiFi calling is not possible, so it’s only a matter of time before the feature rolls out to these users. We don’t know yet if other brands will support the feature, but we’ll likely hear more about it in the coming months. As we mentioned, VoWiFi calling setup allows you to take calls indoors, where you usually face network outages or even call dropouts.
