LG G6 and LG V30 may not be the best of LG have to offer at the moment, but they are still great devices. Especially considering the fact that their prices have gone way down in recent times, they are undoubtedly some of the best devices you could grab in their price category. Now, we are not going to ask what you miss on your LG G6 or LG V30, as the answer to that might be a pretty long list. But the once we know might be of great help to you is the call recording feature.
In this article, we have laid out the steps you can follow to enable the call recording feature on the native phone app that ships with the device. That’s right, call recording without any third party apps.
Enable Call Recording on LG G6 and V30
Call recording is one of the very useful features that many users miss and actually would love to have on their smartphones. Smartphones have come a long way in the past couple of years both in terms of hardware and software. I still remember the good old days where I used owned the Samsung Galaxy Y with a 3.5 inch VGA Screen; what a device it was! While smartphones have improved vastly in many aspects, there are still some areas where we could see a lot of improvement. Call recording is one such area.
There could be various reasons why OEMs decide not to include the call recording option in their devices. The main reason could be because it may not be legal to record calls in some countries/regions. But, that shouldn’t let them not include the feature in the countries where it is actually legal(although that might need a lot of work). After all, it is only a software feature which can easily be rolled out to only to specific countries/regions.
