Did you know that you can record phone calls on Windows 10 Mobile? If you are a proud owner of a Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL, here’s how you can set up native call recording, without having to install any extra apps.

Head over to Settings > System > Phone, and swipe to the very bottom of the page. You will see an option that allows you to chose the app you want to use to manage recorded phone calls. In the drop-down menu, select Voice Recorder. You’re all set.

During a phone call, you will see a new button on-screen called Record. Just tap on the button to begin recording your phone call and the party on the other end will not know you are recording the call. You will have to tap this button manually during each phone call, it does not record automatically.

So how do you listen to your recorded calls? Tap on the Phone tile to open up the dialer. Go into the phone history tab and at the very bottom of the screen is the settings menu (the three dots). Tap on that and select Recorded calls. You will now be taken to all your call recordings!
