The last upgrade received by the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus not only have they integrated into their software the security patch corresponding to the month of may . As the first users have been able to verify, the OTA with reference G960FXXU1BRE5 – Y G965FXXU1BRE3 for the S9 Plus variant – it arrives with a highly anticipated novelty. That is none other than a tool for record calls with the Samsung Galaxy S9 .
The owners of the Samsung Galaxy may have missed some time a function that can be very useful. We refer to the ability to record phone calls . However, the models of the South Korean firm do not have such serial functionality due to legal restrictions that users can find where Samsung smartphones are sold. In the case of Samsung Galaxy S9 , the latest security update changes the rules of the game, at least for European users.
As users have begun to perceive Reddit , the latest update for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus It comes with extra functionality that has gone unnoticed during these days. We refer to the ability to record phone calls , something that to date was not possible. And it is that the manufacturer blocks this function due to avoid greater evils since in some countries where the law operates does not allow, at least without the express consent of both parties, to record telephone calls.
In principle, this function will only reach models with Samsung Exynos processor , and more specifically those marketed in Europe . Among the countries that have received the OTA update with this implementation are Spain , United Kingdom, Romania, Switzerland, the Netherlands, plus Russia and India.
In this way, the owners of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus will be released from the blocking of this function and whose only alternative before this update was the installation of specific applications for this purpose, but with the need of root in the system.
On the other hand, for now we do not know if the tool for recording phone calls will arrive natively to other models such as Galaxy S8 , although we have been able to verify that with the May patch this one does allow recording phone calls with apps such as ACR , one of the most popular in this area.
