[Support added for more devices] Xiaomi phones likely to get native call recording feature by the end of 2020

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on June 17, 2020) follows:

Xiaomi’s MIUI is one of the most feature-packed Android skins out there. Matter of fact, fans of the skin love it for the sheer number of options it offers them on top of AOSP.

This usually involves having in-house apps that offer more features than the pre-installed Google apps. The Google Phone or Dialer app, for instance, doesn’t support native call recording on Xiaomi phones that have the app pre-installed.

In case you missed it, well, Xiaomi phones sold in Europe come pre-installed with the Google Dialer app in place of Xiaomi’s in-house Mi Dialer app. This, essentially, robs these phones off one of the most sought-after features in native call recording.

why doesn’t have a inbuilt call record option in MI Note 8 phone..? Is there any updates for include this option?

I own a Redmi 8 with MIUI PCNEUXM – European ROM.Is it possible to flash Indian rom on it via TWRP or via MiFlash application to get call recording, since this ROM has call recording? And would everything work OK, if possible?

I have redmi note 8 phone without miui dialler. How can i record calls in google dialler?

As seen above, owners of various Xiaomi devices on the EU ROM badly want the native call recording feature and are, in fact, willing to flash the Indian ROM just so as to use the call recording feature that comes baked into the MIUI Dialer app.

If you are up for the task of flashing the Indian ROM to your device, check out this guide. Alternatively, you can sit back and wait for a future software update that should enable native call recording on your Xiaomi handset.
