Enable Call Recording on Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro

Call recording is one of the important features that many users miss and actually want on their smartphones. Smartphones sure have come a long way! I still remember using my Galaxy Y with a 3.5 inch VGA Screen and be absolutely amazed by it. While smartphones have improved vastly in many aspects, there are still some areas where we could see a lot of improvement. Call recording is one such area.

There could be many reasons why OEMs decide not to include the call recording option in their devices. The main reason could be because it may not be legal to record calls in some countries. But, that shouldn’t let them not include the feature in the countries where it is absolutely legal. My OnePlus 3 running Oxygen OS has call recording option by default.
