Call recording is a feature that most of us never thought we wanted to have. No one really does this if it is not a rare case when they might need it. For some people who make a lot of business-related challenges, this is one of the most necessary functions. This may be a legal matter, or you can simply save a call record.
One of the many uses is to simply record a call to record notes later. But the fact is that if you have an Android smartphone, recording calls is quite simple, but not as easy as you think. This usually requires a third-party application due to the lack of the built-in call recording feature of Android. Thanks to the developer XDA developers, now you can enable call recording on the LG G6 and LG V30.
- A rooted LG V30.
- You will need a file browser that can handle root operations. Here are some suggestions.

It has been tested on the H930DS model, which launches Android 8.0 Oreo 20B firmware. Therefore. Theoretically, it should work in other versions of the LG V30.
