Google’s updated policy is banning third-party recording apps on Play Store

Google’s policy has chosen to remove any third-party apps that have a call recording feature from its Play Store. Applications that use the Accessibility API to access audio functionality on Android devices will also remove.

The newly revised Google policy emphasises that third-party apps with core functionality intended to directly support people with disabilities are eligible to use the IsAccessibilityTool. Whereas, other apps that are not eligible will require to comply with prominent disclosure and consent requirements.

Attempts have made by Google to eliminate call recording apps on Play Store. It is all due to privacy issues if the other party is not aware of the recording. The capability has disabled on Android versions 6 and 10. Native programmes like as Google Phone, Mi Dialer and others will not affect by the policy change.

The accessibility feature is not necessary if the app is the default dialer on the phone and is pre-loaded. Google’s content operations head revealed this during a developer webinar targeted to developers. As a result, there will be no infringement. In light of the fact that this is a clarification of an existing policy, the revised policy will applied to all apps beginning on May 11.
