Truecaller is one of the most popular apps in India. While the software does have its benefits, it has often been described as a privacy nightmare by many, because its crowd-sourced info about all those unknown numbers comes from uploading users’ phonebook info and contact details to its own servers.
The company a few weeks ago decided to make its caller ID platform more useful for its Premium users on Android by rolling out a call recording option that enables users to record both incoming and outgoing calls. However, with Android Pie, Google killed the call-recording option for third-party apps citing privacy concerns. The feature can still be activated by third-party software in rooted devices. But that leaves a majority of users out of the loop.
