Why is my Galaxy Note 20 not showing a call recording option? 

Call recording on Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is only available in select regions with laws that allow the recording of phone conversations. In that regard, Samsung put the feature out of action if the law specifically prohibits it. 

So if the Record Call option is not visible, don’t consider it a bug. It’s a legal duty that has to be followed. 

If you live in a region that allows call recording but owns a device bought from a region that prohibits it, you have to change your device’s firmware by flashing it using Odin in order to gain access to this feature.

You have to flash your device’s firmware with a Country Specific Code or CSC binary file from the list of countries below that allow call recording.

Third-party apps can be used to record calls. However, since Google started banning call-recording apps on the Play Store last year, it’s no longer advisable to do so. Plus, many of these third-party apps were risky to use, to begin with.

Is call recording on Galaxy Note 20 legal?

Call recording’s legality depends on the existing laws in the state, region, or country you live in. You should observe your due diligence in learning what your country’s law says about call recording to protect yourself from getting into legal trouble.
At the very least, we recommend asking the other party for permission when planning to record a phone call. If you want to be safe instead of sorry, the best course of action would be to seek professional legal advice before engaging in any call recording.
