The applications with a call recording feature accessible on the Google Play store are going to be removed.Truecaller removes call recording featureOn the very next day when the search giant Google confirmed that it is going to ban of call recording applications, Truecaller disclosed pulling off the call recording ability from its platform.As per a statement given by a Truecaller spokesperson,“As per the updated Google Developer Program policies, we are unable to offer call recordings any longer.
