Google to ban third party call recording apps from PlayStore

According to a Reddit post, Google is launching a new Play Store policy that will effectively bar third-party call recording apps from the Play Store starting May 11. To acquire access to the audio functionalities on Android devices, such apps now use the Accessibility API (which is developed for people with disabilities).

Because of privacy concerns, Google has been gradually attempting to remove call recording from Android. On Android 6, it was mostly prohibited, and in Android 10, the usage of the microphone for call recording was removed. The Accessibility API was the last resort for call recording apps.
