Windows Phone 8 Call Recording


  • Team,

    I have a series of questions to be addressed and would appreciate your patience if you can stop by.


    a) Can you route me to API's capable of intercepting incoming and outgoing phone calls in Windows Phone 8 and record the call conversation ?


    b) Once Recording is in progress, is there a way to simultaneously packetize (RTP) these data and send it over to a remote server ?


    c) Finally can I set this call recording application to be auto invoked whenever there is an incoming & outgoing Call ?


    d) Since SIP is not exposed in Windows Phone 8 do we have an alternate approach to serve the purpose (say a 3rd party Library) ?

  • Much of these things have been covered several times in other threads. It might give you some additional insight if you search and read some of the other threads and the responses from other members and Microsoft.

    You cannot interact with incoming calls.

  • No to all.  I do believe some VOIP functionality is offered to apps though.

  • Happy that you stopped by.., I agree that we cannot interact with incoming calls. But then I see Call recording Apps which are user invoked being able to record the conversation (atleast, they claim to). So what is the best alternate approach to record a conversation ?

  • You cannot record an incoming call, and no apps on Windows Phone can do so.

  • Maybe not the way it was on WinMobile 6.5 but there is a way :

  • I came searching for same question as Raj Kumar has, is it not even possible through third party applications or will this feature be ever added? Its important feature (recording incoming calls) for me.
