Recording voice calls or video calls made by WhatsApp is not yet a native option of the messenger. This means that it is necessary to use third-party apps to record conversations.

The feature can be very useful for those who don't want to miss any detail of what was said in an interview or business meeting. Or it can still be used by those who want to prepare a tribute to someone with excerpts from their conversations.

It is important to note that the reproduction of recorded content can only be done for personal use. In addition, recording and sharing conversations without authorization from one of the parties involved can constitute a crime if the person feels wronged.



With that in mind, check out how to record WhatsApp voice and video calls.

Fun facts about WhatsApp voice and video calls

Not everyone knows, but it is possible to switch a voice call to video without having to hang up. If you're on an audio call, just tap Video call and the contact can either accept or decline the change request.

If you're on a video call, just press voice call and wait for the other to accept. The functionality, however, is not available for group calls.

In fact, group voice and video calls are still little explored by the app's users.

Capable of supporting up to four users simultaneously, this type of chat requires everyone to be in a location with a good internet connection. This is because call quality is determined by the weakest network among the participants.

Another interesting thing about group calls is the fact that you can chat with a blocked contact - but you can't add them to the call yourself. The opposite is also not possible.
