    Just asking the developers out there, I know its quite early to ask as of now, still , will it be possible for any developer to create a call recording app in windows 10 for phone? As we know the restrictions in windows phone 8 doesn't allow such an app to work...

    It's not only the restrictions in the OS (which basically not change between wp 8.1 an 10) but it is also illegal to record calls so don't count on it.

    I think WP is the only platform which can't do call recording, and therefore the only platform which cares for such a stupid law against it (if there even is one)

    Why would you want to record calls and what about the party being recorded?

    Then my friend I should congratulate you that you live in such a country.

    Anyhow the OS restrictions are still a problem.
    But see below thread for a possible solution for you.

    I don't know why you guys are giving the excuse of law. wp has a market share of 2 os 3% only. these people are unable to record call but 78% android users can do it if they like.where is the law then?you better emphasis on the freedom of buyers who pay you money. you say it is an obeyance of law but actually it is a lacking of wp. you should keep the option of recording the call no matter how users use it.

    iOS disallows it as well.

    Why is recording a phone call so important? I've never thought about doing that. I'm just curious of a scenario that I might need to record a call.

    On a similar note, I did recently find out that the laws on recording phone calls in the US vary from state to state. Apparently, some states don't allow it, some states allow it as long as both parties agree, and some allow it even if only one party knows about the recording.

    I have a phone for 12+ years. And I've never needed to record a call. I don't make that much calls, on the other hand - but still. Like come on?
    I'm not sayin' you don't need it because I don't need it, I'm sayin' it's just another gimmicky feature that 1-2% of users would use and that's it.
    Also, it's commin' to WP, so calm your titties.

    Well, there are plenty of nightmare Comcast call recordings that helped customers in what would otherwise be a "he said she said" battle.

    Totally get it now. Good example.
    For some reason, all I could think about were stalker-like scenarios. ha ha ha

    So... older phones upgraded from WP 8.1 to W10M do not have call recording, but existing ones (aka 650, 950, etc.) do have the feature?

    Is this a hardware issue that has to be included in the specs somehow? Or can we get a fix for older phones? Would be nice to have a final, definitive answer.

    FYI: My 640 LTE on Redstone 14925.1000 does not have the feature.

    Microsoft has definitively stated that OTG requires new hardware, hence will only be available on new phones that also have Continuum. Non-continuum phones will not get OTG. What I would like to find out is if the call recording also requires new hardware.

    Since the 650 has it, it does not require a continuum phone, but is there a different hardware requirement and is there a reason we're not seeing it yet?

    Only 950 has OTG, and MS never promised to everypone.
    New 650 have not. That's hardware, not o.s. or firmware

    ^ USB OTG is now Confimed for Windows 10 Mobile; Officially Listed on Help Pages , Windows 10 to bring USB OTG functionality
    It's an included feature but looks like software update is required . Meh, even my nexus 7 2012 has support for OTG. Looks like MS is surely intentionally stalling OTG only for flagships lol :-) . Anyway..

    That's an old "click bait style" title, with not technical development. Then many official sites had given specs about OTG usb ready models.
    Sure there are many other phones with OTG since years, like top rated Nokia

    There's nothing wrong in wishing OTG will arrive in future builds!
