Is it legal to record calls?

Keep in mind legal consequences may come from recording calls. It’s your responsibility to research laws regarding the matter, whether they be local, state, federal, or international. In some places you need one person’s approval to record calls, while other areas require permission from both parties. Bottom line, you’ll want to make sure you find out what you can and can’t do before moving forward.

By Jimmy Westenberg

This is the featured image for the best app stores for Android!

There are tons of great video chat apps out there, and everyone seems to have an opinion on one or two. Some people love the versatility of WhatsApp, others prefer the bare-bones Google Duo, while some people use Facebook Messenger simply because, well, everyone has Facebook.

Which video chat apps do you use?


Out of almost 1,700 total votes, 34.9% of Android Authority readers said they use WhatsApp for video calls.

OnePlus 7T renders show triple camera setup and more

By John Callaham

oneplus 7t render onleaks

Pricebaba / @OnLeaks

New renders and a 360-degree video, allegedly based on the upcoming OnePlus 7T, have been posted on the Pricebaba website, via noted gadget leaker @OnLeaks. The images show off all angles of the rumored follow-up to the OnePlus 7. They seem to be in line with previous leaks of the phone, which show a circular design on the back for the phone’s camera sensors.

The circular module, with a rather noticible bump, includes three rear cameras for the OnePlus 7T, which are arranged horizontally through the center of the circle, with a flash located below the center camera. The OnePlus 7 had just two rear cameras, so it will be interesting to find out the hardware specs for the OnePlus 7T’s triple camera setup.

5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week! – Android Apps Weekly!

By Joe Hindy

Gears POP screenshot for the 280th Android Apps Weekly

Welcome to the 280th edition of Android Apps Weekly! Here are the big headlines from the last week:

  • Most carriers around the world throttle video streaming apps. A new report showed throttling happening regardless of Internet congestion or traffic problems. Some notable numbers include AT&T throttling Netflix 70% of the time while T-Mobile throttles Amazon Prime Video 51% of the time. Some of this is a result of carrier plans. For instance, T-Mobile includes a plan where streaming video is included, but only up to 480p. Thus, the study may have some holes. Still, it’s not encouraging.
  • GeForce Now still exists and it’s setting itself up as a real Google Stadia contender. The game streaming service has been in beta for a few years, but it’s still adding features. It added Steam and Uplay support this last week. The company also plans on opening up RTX servers in Germany and California in the near future. Stadia is stealing headlines, but GeForce might be just as good of an option come November.
  • Samsung launched its DeX app on Windows and Mac this week in preparation for its Galaxy Note 10 launch. The apps work for Windows 7, Windows 10, and …read more

Dear iPhone users: Please don’t forget that a green bubble is a person.

By C. Scott Brown

ios imessage green bubble

Opinion post by
C. Scott Brown

Although iOS and Android devices are more similar now than ever, there are a few specific features that iPhone users have that Android users don’t (or vice versa). The most prevalent of these features is iMessage, the Apple-exclusive messaging app that signifies Android users with a green bubble.

Green bubble, you say? If you don’t know what I’m referring to, here it is: when iPhone owners use iMessage to communicate with other iPhone owners, incoming message bubbles are blue. When an Android user joins the chat, their message bubbles are green. It’s a simple way for iPhone users to know that certain iMessage features will not work with that person because they are using an Android device.

While this seems fairly innocuous and even necessary, the “green bubble” feature has taken on a life of its own — and not in a good way. Some iPhone users the world over — but mostly in the United States — mock the green bubbles that appear in their iMessage feed, even going so far as to create colloquialisms such as “green texts don’t get texts back.”

This attitude might seem childish but …read more

Xiaomi Mi Mix 4: What we want to see

By Scott Adam Gordon

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 - ceramic back logo

The release of a new Xiaomi Mi Mix phone is always an exciting time because it shows off Xiaomi phones at their most progressive.

The first Mi Mix was at the forefront of the now-common full-screen smartphone design language, and the Mi Mix 2 expanded on this with a smaller bottom bezel and ceramic body. By the time the third generation appeared, the Mi Mix 3 was a near bezel-less sliding phone with dual front and rear cameras, and wireless charging.

The latest sequel, the Mi Mix 4, is tipped to be unveiled next month and rumors already suggest it could be a game-changer. Here’s what I hope it delivers.

Series’ highest screen-to-body ratio

Though we haven’t reached all-screen form factors yet, if there’s one OEM you can rely on to push the bezel boundaries further than others, it’s Xiaomi with its Mi Mix series.

Thanks partly to its sliding design, the Mi Mix 3 delivered the range’s most optimized display yet, featuring what Xiaomi says is a roughly 93 percent screen-to-body ratio (though others claim a more conservative 85 percent).
