This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..
Original story (from April 20) follows:
Nokia has been constantly trying to provide the best for its users, in the recent past. And this can be seen with the timely rollout of the security and firmware updates for its devices.
The Finnish company HMD Global, after taking over Nokia in 2014 from Microsoft has also been the driving force behind the company’s revival in the current fast-paced smartphone market.
In fact, the company was among the first few smartphone brands, that came up with a dedicated roadmap, soon after Google released the Android 10 update. And since, then, the company has adhered to the timeline and updated the majority of its phone with the latest software.
One of the reasons for its success is the use of almost stock UI in Nokia phones. We have reported a few days ago, that the company took the benefit of this and brought in a Google Phone app update that adds the much-teased call recording feature.
Noticeably, this feature was reported by the Google Phone app beta user. But now, going by the recent reports, it seems like the company has finally acknowledged and confirmed that the Nokia dialer app has been updated enabling call recording within the app for Indian users.
Check out the official tweet by the Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, Juho Sarvikas, below:
Yup, we are rolling out an updated version for the dialer app enabling recording in India. Team will follow up with official comms!
