Windows 10 Mobile build 10149 features call recording?

Windows 10 Mobile build 10149 features call recording?
The latest build of Windows 10 Mobile, 10149, apparently shows a default folder called Recorded Calls inside the File Explorer app. The new folder is listed along with folders for Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures, Ringtones, and Videos. While Windows Phone 8.1 did not allow users to record both sides of a conversation, it appears that Windows 10 Mobile will offer this feature.

In addition, a Voice Recorder app has been discovered that comes with permission to use the 'Recorded Calls' folder. It is another often requested feature that Microsoft is bringing to Windows 10 Mobile. The latest word we have is that the Windows 10 Mobile update will start rolling out in September. Around the same time, we should see new handsets come to market with Windows 10 Mobile pre-installed.

The open nature of the Android OS makes it easier for third party developers to offer apps that record both sides of a call. In fact, last month we recommended five such Android apps that are free and don't require root access.

Yeah but those apps record the call by phone mics or they record the call itself?

Wait. I thought this was illegal in the US without permission from both parties. I wonder how it will work.

Depends on state actually and requires usually only one party consent. How that refers to personal vs business is up for more edumacated peeps than me.

I gues it will just prompt you an alert: ' This should be illegal in your state, please be sure before using it blah blah blah'.

Windows sucks. After all these years & all the money MS has their phones should be much more advanced. Most companies would have gone under. Good thing they still have a monopoly when it comes to the pc

It's very illegal in MANY STATES and cities... therefore a big company like Microsoft wouldn't release a nationwide product with that as an option
