WhatsApp Messenger is almost a must-have app on all Android devices, including Samsung, HTC, Motorola, OnePlus, LG, Sony, Huawei, etc. One of the most popular features is video calling. However, unlike WhatsApp message backup and restore, WhatsApp doesn’t record video calls to its server or as local backup. Now here is the question: How can we record a WhatsApp video call on Android device? You only need a good WhatsApp video call recorder for Android.

Part 1. WhatsApp Video Call Recorder for Android

Since there is no built-in recording function within WhatsApp Messenger, we have to use third-party recording apps to record WhatsApp video and voice calls. Nevertheless, it is not easy to find a powerful and easy-to-use WhatsApp call recorder for Android phone and tablet. If you want to save your WhatsApp calls, you may try the following two apps.
