How to Record Calls With Your Mobile Phone Monitoring App
Today, I’ll be talking about the feature that is most popular with you guys, and that is “Call recording”. A lot of you want to know why this feature does not work for you, and if it does, how you are supposed to use it. So I’ll be talking about call recording in more detail which should answer some of the most popular questions.
Before I give you the breakdown, let’s talk about when or why you would need to record yours or someone else’s calls. Some of the situations in which you might record a phone conversation are:
- When you want to keep legal evidence of a negotiation or verbal agreements
- When you are having a discussion/meeting and want to keep track of all the points addressed
- When you are interviewing someone or are being interviewed
- When you are receiving threatening phone calls.
So yes, recording a phone conversation can be a very nifty feature. A good part of our subscribers are parents and they’ve told me how listening to the conversations between their children and their friends have helped them get a better insight to their kid’s life.
Now that we know where you could use it, let’s begin this tutorial on how to record calls on your mobile phone.
Step 1: Download Mobile Monitoring App
Recording a phone call on your own device is pretty easy. Your phone or OS usually comes equipped with a record button which does the work for you, or you contact your service provider. Recording a phone call on someone else’s phone is the tricky bit. This is where FlexiSpy software reviews comes in. It enables you to listen to your target phone’s conversations remotely. We get a lot of calls from concerned parents and this is the feature we usually recommend because it lets them know who their kids have been talking to and what the nature of their conversation is.

Step 2: Check Control Panel
Once you’ve installed SG, go to the control panel. You’ll arrive at the dashboard. This is what it should look like:
This will give you a summary of all the incoming and outgoing calls as well as text messages. This will also provide you with the phone call related stats based on previous data before you start spying with the mobile phone monitor in real time.
Step 3: Go to Recorded Calls Tab
To start recording calls, click on the “Recorded Calls” tab. You can find it on your left as illustrated here:
Now, click on settings. You should now view the following:
From here, select if you want to record all calls or just triggered numbers. The latter has been discussed in Step 5. You can also select how the data will be uploaded (Wifi or Mobile Network) and the upload interval (while the phone is charged or at any time you like). Click “Save” to save your settings.
Once the calls have been recorded, you can view the following information regarding your target phone:
- Caller’s name
- Caller’s contact number
- Date and time of call
- Duration of call
- Size of the recording file
You can also search through this call log by name or number and look through the phone’s call log history.
Step 4: Listen and Download
Along with the information mentioned above, you will also be given the option to
- Download file
- Listen to file
If you click on listen, you will be able to hear the recorded conversation right there. However, this option plays the file on the control panel’s default audio player. This is why we recommend our users to download the file and play it on VLC because it has a higher audio resolution that will help you listen to the recording better.
Step 5: Define Suspicious Phone Numbers
If you think searching through the entire call log to find your “blacklisted” number is too tedious, you have the option to define suspicious phone numbers. That way, you will only be notified when that particular caller dials your target phone. Parents, you can use this feature to black list your child’s friend who you think is bad company. This will help you monitor their conversation and be sure if they’re talking about getting in trouble or just discussing homework.
Start Recording Calls!
And you’re just about done! You are ready to start recording calls. Just make sure you have checked you device’s compatibility, your OS requirement, Google’s geo restrictions and your network provider’s policies before you start using the feature.
Call recording will be very helpful once you’ve met all the requirements. It can help you remember meetings, or keep a log of memorable conversations. It can even help you save your life if you’ve been getting threatening phone calls because it gives you evidence to take to the authorities for your security.
