Announcement from boldbeast: Record video calls and voice calls from VoIP apps like WhatsApp, Viber, Messenger, Google Voice, Skype etc.
Android VoIP Call Recording - Record video calls and voice calls from VoIP apps such as WhatsApp, Viber, Facebook Messenger, Google Voice, Google Hangouts, Google Duo, Line, WeChat, Skype, magicApp, Signal etc, is a feature many Android users are waiting for. But for so many years you still can't enjoy the feature, even if your Android phones are more and more powerful, even if you have rooted your phone.

Several recorders said they can record VoIP calls, but actually they can't. Why? Because Android allows only one app to use the microphone. As a result,
  • If the VoIP app (WhatsApp, Skype etc) is using the microphone, the recorder fails to start recording.
  • If the recorder is using the microphone, the caller can't hear your voice during the call because the VoIP app (WhatsApp, Skype etc) is denied to use the microphone.
For this reason all call recorders and all screen recorders can't record VoIP calls. You can test and confirm the fact yourself.

Boldbeast VoIP Call Recorder
This app adds the VoIP Call Recording feature to your phone. It uses the microphone in a shared manner, so it can record VoIP calls successfully on all Android phones.
  • Record video calls and voice calls from VoIP apps such as WhatsApp, Skype etc. Actually all VoIP apps on the market are supported.
  • Capture game playing, video playing, music playing, app using etc. Recordings can be saved as video+audio files or pure audio files. Audio is loseless because the data is copied directly from the system internal.
  • Audio can be saved in stereo or in mono.
  • Save all recordings locally in your phone memory or in the external SD card, so they are available at once after recording is ended.
  • Manage recordings, play back, rename, delete, share etc.

Requirement
  • Android 5.0 up.
  • Root needed.

Installation
  • Install the app from Google Play: Android VoIP Call Recorder
  • In the app tap "Root > Grant Root Access" to grant root access to this app.
  • On the screen you'll see the folder name in which the CallRecordingFix module is saved. Please open Magisk Manager, tap the top-left icon, tap Modules, tap the bottom-center "+" icon to locate the folder and install the CallRecordingFix module.
    Note: On some phones the File Manager (or File Explorer etc) is too weak, so in it you may not see the folder. But in Magisk Manager you can see the folder. You can see the folder also in third-party file managers.
  • Power off then power on the phone.
Now you can enjoy the new VoIP call recording feature on your Android phone.

Start / Stop / Pause / Resume Recording
When a VoIP call comes, the VoIP app (WhatsApp, Skype etc) doesn't notify this app, so this app can't start recording automatically because it doesn't know the event. You should tap the record button on the notification or on the float view to start recording. When the call is ended, this app doesn't know the event either, so you should tap the stop button to stop recording. During recording you can pause and resume recording if you want.

Feedback
The app has just been released. Feedback, bug reports are welcomed.

Another user met the same problem on his Pixel 3a XL Android 10 phone, and he sent log files to me.
I'm checking the log files at this moment. It seems a file in CallRecordingFix is not executed when Magisk starts up. I'll fix it soon.
