Google Rolls Out Gmail Call Recording

Google Voice has been updated to include the ability to record incoming VoIP calls directly from Gmail.

According to tech news site Tech Crunch, a number of Gmail users have already noticed the new feature on Gmail, suggesting that Google has initiated broad roll-out of the service.

The Google Voice integration with Gmail first took place back in August, which was then followed with a couple of tweaks and a promise to introduce a call recording feature soon.

The function has been available on Google Voice for a long time - to use, people needed to press '4' on their keypad - but not many people were aware about.

The record button can now be found on the Gmail dial-pad, allowing people to record inbound voice calls. However, the function comes with some limitations. The function is only limited to inbound calls and voice calls made directly from one Gmail account to another do not support the recording feature.
