Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I find recorded WhatsApp video calls?

All the WhatsApp video calls recorded using the built-in recorder will be saved in the Photos app if you have an iPhone and in the Gallery if you have an Android phone. On the other hand, if you have recorded the calls using a third-party app, you need to open the app to find them.

Are WhatsApp calls automatically recorded?

No, officially, WhatsApp does not have any feature that allows you to record voice or video calls automatically. While it does not have any such feature, you can use a third-party app to record voice or video calls and an in-built recorder to record video calls if your phone has one.
