Google will be implementing new Google Play Store policies that will prevent third-party apps from using the Accessibility API that is used for recording the call audio stream.

These changes on the Google Play Store will be made starting May 11 and are aimed to promote privacy and better security for users as the call recording laws around the world vary from country to country.

On the other hand, system/pre-installed apps that have already accessed and/ or have permission to tap on the Accessibility API will not be affected by the change.

Two exceptions to the rules are Pixel and Xiaomi’s dialers which are considered native call recording features. However, Google has not yet reported any plans regarding these built-in functions but we assume additional policies will come soon and may be implemented in response to this in the future.
