As per the app’s ‘About‘ section on Google Play Store, it comes with a call management feature that allows users to organise recent calls in groups.
The main feature of the app remains the support for call recording without an on-call disclaimer announcement.
Voice recording feature on stock Android dialer apps generally has a disclaimer announcement that notes “this call is now being recorded“, which could put off some call receivers.
ODialer seems to solve this problem by removing the disclaimer altogether and allowing for stealth call recording.
This app could also spark privacy concerns.
The app is currently rate 3.8 out of 5 on Google Play Store, with reviews suggesting that there are plenty of bugs in the current version of the app.
