How to Enable Call Recording in Sony Xperia Z2 & Z3


There are times when you need to make a record of all of your conversations, or at least for your important conversations. While the messages can be saved and shown to anyone, calls aren’t usually stored in the same way. even though calls are far important than messages and since everyone know that they can be caught on Messages, they try to keep as low as possible on Message. However, since most of the times users don’t have the option to record a call, the other person can take this opportunity and say whatever he likes. So having a feature to record any call comes in handy in certain situations. However, most of the OEMs keep the call recording feature hidden, although not a difficult way at all, if you want to use them.
