Call recording is a popular feature in OnePlus phones. However, the latest models from OnePlus, including OnePlus 9, 9R, 9 Pro, Nord, and others do not feature the Oxygen OS dialer and contact apps. They feature the Google Phone app and contact app. Though the app doesn’t come with a call recording option, it doesn’t allow you to record calls secretly. The callers would be notified ahead of time that his/her phone call is getting recorded. This call record warning is more of an annoyance, but luckily there are ways in which you can disable call recording alerts on OnePlus device.
You can install the official dialer from the OnePlus series that can be manually installed on your device. It comes with an automatic call recorder feature that does not alert the other person on call that it is getting recorded. Using the OnePlus Dialer will allow you to get rid of this unwanted warning that defeats the purpose of recording a call in the first place.
Steps to install the OnePlus Dialer and disable call recording alerts on OnePlus:
Step 1: Download and install the OnePlus Dialer on your phone
You need to download the OxygenOS Dialer APK file and install it on your OnePlus device. Once the installation is complete, you can install it just like any other normal APK file. Whenever you download apps from unknown sources, you need to provide necessary permissions as and when you are prompted.
Step 2: Turn OnePlus Dialer as your default dialer
Once you have completed the installation process successfully, you need to launch the OnePlus dialer app. If you have already chosen it as your default app, it will prompt the user automatically. If you haven’t done it, you need to follow the following steps. From the bottom right corner, you need to tap on the Default Phone App option. You need to click then the option ‘Set as Default on the OnePlus Phone.’
Alternatively, you can follow these steps to set OnePlus Dialer as your default dialer:
Open the Settings option on your phone and then access your phone’s settings
Then click on the Apps and Notifications option
Choose the Default Apps option from the menu
Now access the Phone App screen and select the OnePlus Phone Dialer
Step 3: Activate automatic call recording
Once you have completed the above-mentioned steps, you need to open the OnePlus dialer on your phone. Now select the three-dot menu option present on the right side and then click on the Settings. You need to activate the toggle for the Call Recording option by tapping on the option. This will enable the automatic recording of calls you make or receive. The best thing is that it won’t bother you or the other person with the audio warning whenever the call is getting recorded. The person whom you are calling will never know that you have installed Google Dialer on your phone. Furthermore, you can disable the app whenever you want if you are not comfortable using the OnePlus dialer.
The above-mentioned steps are an easy way to record OnePlus phone calls on your device without letting the other person know that the call is being recorded. Using Google Dialer takes that privacy away from OnePlus users. The steps are simple and can be followed by anyone. You can follow the same steps to disable call recording alerts on OnePlus regardless of which OnePlus model you are using. They are applicable on your OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, OnePlus 9R, OnePlus 8T, and other models.
