How to Record Audio on Samsung with the Built-in Recorder

There are many reasons people record audio on their Samsung phones. Sometimes, they need to convert the audio recording to text, use it as a notification tone, or even share it with family and friends. Samsung's latest version is the Voice Recorder version.

The best thing about this in-built application is that it records audio without the internet; you will only need the internet to update the application. However, it only provides a basic audio recording feature to users. Therefore, you don't want to use it if you need an advanced tool.

Tap on recording

Follow the operating steps below to use the pre-installed Samsung Voice Recorder:

Step 1. Head over to the Voice Recorder application.

Step 2. Tap the rounded-red button to start recording.

Step 3. Tap the square-white button on the bottom right corner of your screen to stop recording. In addition, you can also pause/continue the recording by pressing the button on the bottom left.

Step 4. Once recording has stopped, you can change the file name before tapping on 'Save.' It saves as a .m4a file.

Note: To locate your recordings, launch the 'My Files' app and select 'Audio'; you can search for the saved recording in the folder that pops up.

How to Record Audio on Samsung with Other Voice Recorders

Asides from the in-built Voice Recorders, Samsung (like every other Android phone) is compatible with third-party voice recorders. This section will look at two of them, including the Samsung Voice Recorder.

Samsung Voice Recorder

The Samsung Voice Recorder comes with an easy-to-use interface that makes it preferable to other voice recorders for Android, especially if it's a Samsung Android device. It comes with its standard features like playback speed and a mini player.

What makes this application stands out is that it offers an interview mode, which means that two microphones can be activated to capture both the interviewer's and the interviewee's voice. This feature can be used as a noise cancellation feature where the unwanted voices are captured as the interviewee's voice.

In a word, if you don't mind downloading this app on your phone, you may have a go for it.
