This happens both on WhatsApp calls and phone calls.
In WhatsApp calls the record button doesn't even show and the notification says " waiting for a call".
On normal phone calls it appears and the notification is "waiting for answer".

Either way, after I rescan recordings for both types of calls appear as above.

App has all possible permissions, notifications turned on and battery not optimised.
Help? Did I pay for nothing?
Thanks.

PS.
Can I record to mp3? Can it be an added feature?

Try changing the recording root settings in the app, you can also enable mp3 recording there too, enable the accessibility service for it in your android settings.

I'm not sure, I'd try changing the device setting first, the option at the top in root settings.
I just call my carrier service to test as it just a recorded message and also free to call it.
I don't think wifi calling is supported either, well it doesn't work with the normal phone app. Normally call recorders don't work with other wifi calling methods either.

The only option that works is when changing root recording into standard API recording.
So this doesn't work with whatsapp?
can you recommend an app that does?

To record both sides root is still needed



It's done years ago: Settings > Recording > Exceptions

The exceptions tab is not selectable on system recorder on android 9

I meant in the Root recording settings as shown in screenshot. I'm not sure if it works with whatsapp and I dont know of any to recommend.

I understood what you meant but these settings had no effect whatsoever.
I tried all the qualcomm ones, even though my actual chipset wasn't listed.
only changing from root to srandard api allowed to record anything at all. not sure if both sides, will have to test with a friend.

@skvalex
Will whatsapp/telegram/etc. recording be added?
Thanks.

Here is hope that Google will add necessary framework to allow Call Recorder to work on Pixel without root access.

I doubt that it'll allow third party apps to access recorded calls, which means system recorder method implemented in Call Recorder won't work.
