Record Phone Calls in Google Voice

Whether you need to record a phone interview or some other form of telephone communication, arguably the best way is to hop on Google Voice and use the app’s built in recording feature to do so. Use the steps below to get the job done.

Step 1
As Google warns Voice users, there are different laws in different states that prohibit or regulate phone call recording in different ways. Before you record a phone conversation, either check your state laws, or ask the person you are speaking with to consent to a recording.

Step 2
Launch the Google Voice app. If you are having trouble finding Voice, simply direct your Internet browser to

Step 3
If you haven’t previously used Google Voice, you will be asked to agree to Google’s terms and conditions and set up a new phone number. Once you have done this, go to the Settings menu by clicking the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner of the page.

Step 4
In Settings, select the “Calls” tab, and then check the box next to “Call Options.” Now, you will be able to record incoming calls with Google Voice. To record a call, simply press the “4” key.

Just like that, you’ll be able to record your calls through Google Voice! By default, Google will store your calls online, and you will be able to access them from your inbox (a recorded icon will appear next to the incoming call you recorded). Note that, at this point in time, Google Voice does not let you record outgoing calls.
