Samsung Voice Recorder is designed to provide you an easy and wonderful recording experience with high quality sound, while also offering playback and editing capabilities. 
For your everyday needs, we developed a “Voice Memo” recording mode so that you can convert your voice to text (Speech to text).

Available recording modes are:

[STANDARD] It provides pleasantly simple recording interface. 
[INTERVIEW] Two microphones located on the top and bottom of your device will be activated to capture you and your interviewer (or interviewee)'s voices, it also displays dual waveform accordingly.
[VOICE MEMO] Records your voice and then convert it to on-screen text, so called STT.

Before starting the record, you may configure
□ Directory path (If external SD-card is available)

During recording, 
□ You can reject incoming calls while recording.
□ BOOKMARK the points you want to mark.
□ Background recording is also supported by simply pressing HOME button.

Once saved, these actions below can be performed:
□ Both mini player and full player can be launched from Recordings LIST.
* Built-in sound player supports media controls such as Skip muted, play speed and Repeat mode.
□ Edit: Rename and Delete
□ Share your recordings with your friends via Email, Messages, OneDrive, WhatsApp, etc.

* Not Support S5, Note4 Android-M
** Available recording mode depends on Device Model

This app is worse than useless, it stops recording after a minute or so without warning. I later figured out how to prevent it: From the home screen (not the Voice app), go to Settings -> Apps -> Voice recorder -> Battery, then set "Allow background activity". Only after this it won't destroy your work anymore, or whatever you are doing. The app does not direct the user to set this behavior, it should be set by default. This kind of garbage is exactly what makes people hate technology.


Since last update the recording will just stop by itself. And I have never seen a way to record a call on this program. And it doesn't understand English very well. It worked fine before the update. No time stamping on the recording so if you want to know when a certain segment was dictated, you will not have it. That is critical for documentation. If I make a notation for a certain occurrence, there's no time stamp on it. I need to know the time of the occurrence.


The app works fine, unless I lock my phone when I am in the app. Then the microphone stops working and I can't record voice memos at all till I restart. But if I leave the app before I lock my phone, it works perfectly. Please look into this issue. My device is a Samsung Galaxy A30 running the latest security update (September 2019) and latest version of this app.


App works fine, but lately I've been have an issue where if I plug in my headphones without a mic, it wont record. Buy then when I take my headphones out. It wont record. And I have to restart my phone. I tried force stopping it and then trying again but nope. Might be an issue with my actual phone itself. Maybe the mic part in the Jack is shorting or thinking there is still contact when there isnt. Idk. If you have any tips or maybe it's an issue for other people, Thanks


Stops recording after 1:18 but the time will pass thinking you're still recording but it isn't! Why? Then it ask about optimizing battery in order to record. If I hit record I'm well aware of the battery usage. What do I care if it uses the battery? I want the recording to record! This last update really hurt this app! Change it back!


It's missing the autoback up with samsung cloud. I work with music and own 2 samsung phones and, without it, I need to search on what phone I saved that specific recording I'm looking for. Needless to say it's tiresome.


I am using this app for three months from now, I must admit it's the best app for call recording. The clarity is impeccable and it saves recording by the name of caller. I am satisfied with the app and I recommend this app to all who are looking for one stop solution. Great job by developers!!!!


WON'T WORK ON FACTORY UNLOCKED NOTE 10+ Doesn't play recorded songs in the background when screen is off. Yes, in the setting I made sure to allow use of app in the background and also NOT to put it in sleep. I even tried older versions, but it just won't work on my Factory Unlocked Note 10+. It works fine on my AT&T S10+ though.


Good app, but no described modes available (standard, interview, voice memo). And if the interview mode may depend on device model (because there should be 2 microphones on the device), I cannot understand why "voice memo" mode is not available. I expect that it just a software feature.


This app is very useful. If I want or need to make an important note you can use this it's simple to use. If improvements could be made I would say it would be better to have folders to store groups of items rather than having to be scrolling through a long list of things.


I just installed Samsung Voice Recorder app in my samsung On8( new version) phone. I am unable to find the option for automatic recording of my all phone calls. Can you help me with this information.


Can't begin to rate an audio app whose rename window is set so low that it vanishes beneath the popup keyboard. Please fix this, as the app is pretty worthless if we can't name our files from within the app itself.


This version is missing some useful features that I used in versions that were included in previous Samsung phone models. Default file name and location settings are just so useful and app 101 basic that I can't understand why they overlooked it in the rewrite.


This is one of the first voice recording apps that records noise from a distance, ie. Noisy neighbours through a wall from 4 metres away. It's a great app. Been really handy.... 👍😉


This app is amazing, highly customisable and you can edit the file and add more recording to a file you have previously recorded, hope it keeps getting features like a customisable backup option.


Good for recording cant fault that but in the speach to text the stuf that comes in it is crazy. I cant hear any of what it says is being said and some of the stuf is quite disturbing. I'm not sure what is actually going on with it. I'm not sure if someone is tapping my phone as some of the things it says is relatable to myself or I may have a ghost??? As I cant hear anything that it says is being said. Not quite sure but apart from that good app


Doesn't work in background even with background activity on and stops when screen is out. Lost lots of recordings this way. Does NOT record phone conversations. Useless garbage.


I've seen a beautiful program with a nice UI so far, although It would be almost flawless to add these three features: 1-Location-tag to recordings 2-an instant recording shortcut 3-Choose between different microphones (BT and embedded)


V Good Application. Using frequently. One problem not showing current/ todays date on recorded file. Everytime shows 14 Aug at top. Current recorded file not being shown. Help. Thanks


I have been using it for 10 months now until the recent update which cut off very important information that I thought was recorded. I didn't realise only 1:33seconds recorded even though the recording continued. Really upsetting to lose all that work.


I use this for the repeat function. It seems after a few hours of repeating, the audio degrades where the words are clipped or not clear. I've erased files and started over a few times but after a few hours, it does it again.


The app itself delivers when it comes to voice recording. However, there is one feature that I would like to see in this app - the ability to continuously record audio when entering the camera app. The app stops recording when I enter into my camera (Samsung native camera app), thus, I lose some important information that I am recording. Can you include this in the next update of the app? Thank you! God bless! 😇


I don't know why was silences after recorded for my lessons in the list everytime.Only about first 5 min recorded voice and then left time not recorded still silences at the end. Not for once in everytime. I'm using with Samsung A50 model. So explain why didn't use it.


The app itself is well designed, nice features, easy to use. But where the app falls very short is when I want to use the recordings outside of the app. The app records in .m4a format and when I try to import them into any audio editor I either get an error or it just won't even do it. In the app, everything is fine, but even playing back the file, half of the audio is missing. This is a problem I cannot have in my workflow.


Seems like others have the same problem I'm having. This was the only voice app I liked. Now it stops recording at 2 mins. I lost something very important. Thanks a bunch. Howsabout you guys fix this issue. Please and thanks. Then I can go back to 5 stars. Also, why in the H E double hockey sticks did you eliminate the stamps on the bottom with the update. What a pain in the Arse!


All I ask it that this app can be used in split screen! Makes it much easier to pause while reading narration material! 5 stars if you guys add this feature!!


The user interface is a bit glitchy, and the recording list gets cluttered up with voicemails that shouldn't be there. It ultimately does its job, without ads, at no cost, which is nice.


Luved the app on my S6 phone, but it just died a few days ago. Have new S10e now...None of the recordings transfered over. How do I get back all my previous voice recordings back to this phone?????


This app appears to use mobile data when not in use. 9.42GB since Oct 24 even though I haven't opened it in several months.


Shuts off intermittently after july 2019 update. Used to be excellent. Samsung doesnt seem to care about the complaints re this app.


Why to use I must allow my pictures , files , media , exposed to this voice recorder , other than that , it works great.. .


Out of the sudden the all can't record any sounds, i even changed earpiece or try to record without earpiece, but the record can out silent


Unbelievable. The app stops recording after a few minutes. I have lost several hours of valuable information that I thought they've been recorded. I'm switching to a different app.


May i know how to edit the voice memo, whole meeting i recorded but certain parts i need to edit out. Please upgrade the voice recording quality and can play back the voice clearly. Note 10+ user here


Recorder is constantly stopping while recording. Sometimes it won't stop when you press stop recording. Absolutely useless. uninstalling.


I don't know what happens actually with this app, this app is like spoiler to do voice recording, this app is not recording after initial 2-3 minutes then start recording after the long gap(2-3 minutes) This App Is Not Good for Voice Recording.


There's no other options for recording why? Need an update for Galaxy A series. The other features please it would be helpful.


Asks for SD Card access every time upon restarting my phone. Makes me lose valuable recording time when I launch it with Bixby Voice.


Good recording. Voice to text works better than I expected.


Now and days courts are moving away from using recorded audio as evidence so basically its pretty useless. I just block people I don't know or don't want to talk to. If its marriage issues, cheaters and such then hire a detective. Uninstalling because I'll never use this.


Love this apo!!!!!! Super handy for humans with poor memory aka old people problems lol 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 My last report was because my own error(s) not the apps. I now know what i am doing with it. Lol


Records well and does the job. It will be better with a rewind and forward buttons. It will be great if it does not change the appearance during editing.


Extremely useful as they have this speaker feature which plays recording through main or through small speaker...that feature very helpful for me.Thank you!!!!!!


Took into a very important meeting. 65 min. rocording which captured the first 20 seconds and the last 20 seconds. All the rest of recording was silent!


Love the design, easy to use, and does the voice to text dictation very well.


Nice app, voice recording is very clear without any distortion.


Great app. Hope in the next updates there's an option for trimming recording before sharing


Used it to record love notes and apologies to my bf when I wasn't with him. Worked well. 5 ☆s.


This app is great for use in classrooms and lecture halls. It captures the voices of the primary speakers above the background noise and is very user friendly and easy to navigate through to enable its other recording modes.


Great app, good quality, easy to use - would 5 star if there was a way to back up files or transfer them


it is great! but I wish they can use NOT "Max 10 minutes." I want to have continuously using speak and talk.


Can't believe how good this works. I can talk in the other room and it sounds like I'm next to it.


Wont allow me to share recordings. Also can't edit them like shorten it for example. What's the point?


Apparently only offers the Standard Mode on Galaxy A6.... Funny that a Samsung app wouldn't work as designed on a new Samsung phone?!?


Version, after version, this became truly professionally designed and functional sound recorder! Fantastic recording, but above all playing options. Bravo! Quick edit is possible even in complete silence. Fantastic!


Works perfectly. Love having the voice recorder handy.


Why cant i save my speech to text as an actual text file. Or even copy the text for that matter


Who can talk with me they name(Rename) not show. They show call recordings and date next name so please change this call recorder name ya Mobile number.dont show full long lent name show only caller name


Why in the world can this app not record in stereo? Mind blowing.


Simply amazing. I use this app for all my voice over projects! 10/10


Actually does what you download it for, without constantly advertising at you, and asking for 5 star ratings before actually doing anything.


All was going perfectly, and today just deciced to stop recording, anything.


App recording struggles in wide open spaces. I do wish this app had editing featured to trim voice recordings when completed, then it would be a full comprehensive recording app.


Would love a noise reduction option. That's the only thing missing.


I love this app so much, recording in stereo with Samsung's microphones is unparalleled. One request though, could you please optimize it for tablets? Thank you very much!!


GREAT and EASY TO USE!! Awesome voice recorder! No annoying ads. Super clear recordings. Simple to use edit options. Very happy with this app!


I can't play the record .. it's written than .. can't play when there is a call .. and there's no call !!!


Voice recordings are no longer syncing to watch. I have the appropriate apps installed on both the phone and the watch. Please help


Scrolling SUCKS, if you try to move a little bit it will auto scroll itself to oblivion and it is literally impossible to be precise in any definition of the word.


The main problem I have with this app is not being able to use an external USB audio device.


I love the quality, but I hate that it stops when something else is playing, I need it for that.


audio quality very underwhelming, additionally it's got lesser settings and is quieter than the previous voice recorder I used and the phone I used before actually had a faulty mic!


The recording pauses when the screen is off. Loss of important information. Not happy with the app🙁


It she is very helpful App. the voice recorder is very GoOd.💗💗


I hope the next update of this app adds a stereo microphone recording option.


This app is normally good but now records are silent.


Stops recording after a few minutes I recorded all of my bio lectures so I could go back to them and add to my notes and now I cant.


The audio is really good and clear!


Nowhere in the app to play any files recorded in the app. Just setting button for options. What happen? No option to open saved files.


Please update with call recorder.. At least for top models.. Having s9 plus in hand.. Not even having in built call recorder...


I like that you can chose the speed to listen back.


Samsung, in their "Terms Of Service", admits (in very convoluted, and very lengthy _"legalize"_, that a non-lawyer or privacy-aware intellectual) that this app is spyware which, from a client's point of view, and any competent software engineer's honest, disinterested opinion devoid of any social, business, political, legal liability conflict of interest; a contextually appropriate professional sans cognitivr biases, etc, @ non-professional who has the meritocracy to be authoritative, will agree


Hi, I wanna use record in my calls on galaxy a30, but I haven't any record options in my phone! Plz help me


the voice is so low we can barely hear it. disappoonting.


Only got 11 minutes out of an hour and a half recording. Update is garbage.


Records very clear audio.. useful application


No good. I tried to record my very loud refrigerator to compare to others but it won't pick up the sound at all.


My call records unfortunately deleted. How to recovered call records data.


Excellent voice quality, for both sides conversation.


During play back recordings disappear. Terrible App


Always been a reliable recording app for me.


Keeps on switching off in crucial moments. I hate it.


why call recording automatically not started in any option shown ??? please kindly help


This is soo long distance a d it doesn't bug out or gets fuzzy 💖💖 app and Harry Potter


I have samsung Galaxy a30, Samsung voice recorder is not recording calls


How do you play back your recorded voices?


Recording stopped when captured image using camera


It stops recording after a minute!


Good built in recorder for Samsung Devices!
