Recording a conversation on your Vivo phone

Recording a conversation on your Vivo phone Useful

Recording a conversation on your Vivo phone is one of the smallest, but nevertheless very significant functions. Manufacturers of modern devices are trying to remove such a feature from their devices. However, the company Vivo still provides users with the ability to save call records. In most gadgets, this option is provided as standard, and therefore you do not need to turn to third-party software to use it. It is about such smartphones with call recording function that our article will talk about.

What is a recording of a conversation?

Under recording of a telephone conversation (recording) specialists understand it more as an option than as a built-in feature. It allows you to save the past dialogue between different users in phone mode. Mobile gadget manufacturers often embed such an option in operating system shells, and devices with FunTouch are no exception.

Ask a question
Today it is quite common to record calls in business. For example, when ordering any service over the phone, calls are automatically recorded. This is necessary in order to monitor the work of consultants, managers and operators, as well as to keep track of the real wishes of clients.

How to record a conversation in Vivo

In popular smartphones from Vivo, call recording is available without the use of auxiliary tools. First, you need to contact another subscriber. And there are only two ways to do this:

  • make an outgoing call to any contact;
  • to accept an incoming call.

Contacts can be both from the phone book and unknown mobile numbers.

Manual recording

Recording a conversation on your Vivo phone

First of all, let's consider the option of recording calls manually. This procedure is quick and does not require any additional applications.

When the connection with the other subscriber is established, the user is faced with call menu. Among the six main buttons, there is an icon in the form of a cassette labeled "Record". It is on this icon that you need to click to make this element in the menu bar highlighted. This will confirm that the conversation is being recorded.

Recording is done at the system level, so it does not matter whether the speaker is the multimedia speaker or the conversational speaker.

Sometimes the Record button still does not appear on the screen as the main button. But it can be found in the "More" tab of the same call menu.

As for stopping the record:

  • it automatically turns off after the reset button is pressed;
  • it can be deactivated manually by clicking on the same cassette icon.

Auto mode

In addition to manual recording, there is also automatic call recording on Vivo. It makes it possible to save absolutely all conversations without exception. This frees the user from having to perform additional actions by pressing the button with cassette icon in every telephone conversation.

Recording a conversation on your Vivo phone

This function is activated as follows:

  1. Go to the smartphone settings.
  2. Open the "Phone" tab and go to "Call Recording".
  3. Move the slider to the active position next to "Automatically record all calls".
  4. In the same way, enable "Automatically record user calls".

Where can I find phone records?

All files with records are in one place in the smartphone's memory. Their names are as similar as possible, and therefore it is only possible to distinguish between them by dates and times.

To open a list with all phone records (manually and automatically), you will need:

  1. Open the "Files" folder.
  2. Go to "All files" ("Local files").
  3. Click Record.

Third-party applications

The phone call recording option built into the shell sometimes fails. This happens because of firmware problems and other reasons. But even in this case there is a way out of the situation. To solve the problem you will have to use third-party software.

The most common application is CallRec. There are paid and free versions. The first, of course, opens up more possibilities. So, with such a utility, you can:

  • record all conversations or conversations with individual contacts automatically;
  • save the recordings at the user's discretion (a request to save is received after each call is ended).

This application has settings for both incoming and outgoing calls.


Is it legal to record phone calls?
On the territory of the Russian Federation, Ukraine and neighboring countries this function of smartphones can be used safely, as it is not prohibited. But there are countries in the world where such a procedure is a criminal offense. That is why, when traveling outside your home country, it is worth clarifying this point, so as not to have problems with foreign law enforcement officers. These include, for example: Germany, some states of America, Australia and others.
Can I send a recording of a call to another user?
Yes. Since the recording is saved in regular mp3 format, you can send it without problems via social networks, Bluetooth and other known methods.
Can the person you are talking to hear when the recording function is activated?
No. The subscriber on the other side of the "wire" does not receive any notification that this option has been enabled.

Recording a phone conversation and listening to it is not such a difficult action, but not all users know how to properly activate this function. Fortunately, the current manufacturers do not forbid people to activate it, making this process as accessible as possible. To record, you only need to press a single key, and to listen to just go to the appropriate folder in the memory of the device. Therefore, after understanding the simple instructions just once, in the future you can perform elementary actions in any telephone conversation. But the most important thing is to do it in a country where there will be no problems with the law afterwards.
