You can easily record a call on Android if you use the right tools. From Android 9 Pie, Google is making it difficult to use these types of tools with the aim of improving the privacy and security of the system. However, even if you have a device with Android 10, you have the ability to record the conversations you have over the phone without too many complications.

Keep in mind that call recording is regulated differently depending on the country in which you reside. For example, in Spain you can record a conversation if you participate in it directly. However, the use you make of that recording may have legal consequences, especially if you use it to reveal and disseminate personal matters, which violate the privacy of your interlocutor. If we are talking, rather, of capturing a call in which we do not participate, Spanish law explicitly prohibits it. In any case, whenever you record a conversation it is essential that you inform all the participants. In addition, it is important that you make sure which laws regulate this aspect in your country or region and what you must do to respect them.
