How to record calls on your Android Phone?
Before you record phone calls, be sure you are aware of the privacy laws in your country. In most cases, it is OK to record a phone call if you are using it for personal use only and you will not be sharing the recording with others. In any case, it is best if you get the person’s permission to record the call and have the permission recorded as part of the call. You may want to record business conversations, or personal conversations for future reference. It may be a good idea to record technical support calls so you can go back and review later. Calls to financial institutions or banks may be good to have a recording off in case there is a dispute later.
There are a few options for recording phone calls on your Android phone:
- Use the pre-installed Voice Recorder
- If you have a newer Samsung phone, you can use Voice settings.
- Download an app from Google Play – this is a good option if you have an older phone that doesn’t include Voice Recorder, or doesn’t have the option in Voice settings.

How to Sideload apps or data?
Before we discuss how to sideload apps or data to an Android tablet, first, let’s talk about what Sideloading is and why you might need to do this.
Sideloading is the process of installing an app or data bypassing the normal process. For instance, if you wanted to load an app onto your tablet that is not from Google Play, Android Market, or whatever app store your tablet uses, then this would be referred to as sideloading an app.
You may want to hide apps, or disable apps on your Android phone or tablet. Most manufacturers include several apps that are pre-installed on your Android device when you purchase it. Many times, these pre-installed apps cannot be uninstalled or deleted. You should, first, attempt to uninstall the app, since that is the most desired result in order to get it off your Android device and free up the used storage space.
