Method 1. Record Internal Audio on Android via Screen Recording App 

Over the years, it was only possible to record internal audio on Android using an external microphone. However, this method only produced poor audio quality, including background noises. Hence the need to record internal audio on Android using third-party apps (screen recorders) such as:

  • 1. Mobizen Screen Recorder
  • 2. AZ Screen Recorder

#1. Mobizen Screen Recorder

RSUPPORT Company developed this screen recorder for recording sounds produced by their mobile phones during screen recording. This Android screen recorder is downloadable to your phone from the Google Play Store for free but is laced with various adverts.

In addition, it has all screen recording features and records internal audio efficiently on Mobizen, LG and Samsung Android phones. Hence, this application may not work on Android devices made by other manufacturers. Follow the steps below to operate this application:

Step 1. Download the Mobizen Screen Recorder and install it on your Android phone.

Step 2. Launch the application. Next, look for the Settings icon in the top right corner of your screen.

Step 4. Start the recording and save the edited output. Your device will record and get the quality internal audio of your video or game for the screen recording session.

#2. AZ Screen Recorder

Like the Mobizen Screen Recorder, the AZ screen recorder is free and downloadable from Google Play Store. However, using this application will require that you stay in a quiet room because the microphone can pick external sounds into your recording.

In addition, you need to transfer the recording to a PC to extract the audio file from the screen recorder using video editing software. You must have made several screen recordings to get the perfect audio without much external interference. Moreover, if you don't know how to screen record on Android, you can also try this application.

Step 1. Download the AZ Screen Recorder and install it. Launch the application.

Step 2. Tap the Settings icon and locate the "Record Audio" feature.

Step 3. Exit the application. Open the video, presentation or game you want to record.

Step 4. Then, click on the AZ bubble on your Android screen.

Step 5. Tap on Record to capture the video or the game on your device, then the audio is recorded. Lastly, slide down the notification bar and stop the recording session.

Method 2. Record Android Internal Audio using a Capture Card 

Another method of recording internal audio on Android is using a capture card. Capture cards serve as a bridge between the PC you are recording to and the device (Android) you are recording from. Though expensive, they are very effective in capturing quality internal audio.

The process of using the capture card varies based on the type you have. This is because each capture card has its screen recording software. An example is the Elgato capture card familiar with professional gamers. Here's how to use it to record internal audio from your Android.

Step 1. Download Elgato Game Capture HD software and install it.

Elgato Sound Capture User Interface.

Step 2. Open the Android application or game (using an emulator) you want to record from. Then, select the option (Team Chat/Music/PC Gaming) that corresponds to your input source.

Step 3.  Click the audio output from "Where do you want to hear your audio?" under Settings. Next, click Settings (gear icon) and open Preferences.

Step 4. Under the Sharing tab, tick your preferred choice under "Mix the following tracks to exports."

Step 5. Lastly, tick your preferred option under "Export to separate files." Then click OK.

Method 3. Record System Sound on Android with an Android emulator

The last method to record internal audio on Android is using the emulator; it is a better solution for getting high-quality internal audio. It does this by mirroring your Android application into your PC before recording its output.

An excellent tool that can capture the internal audio from the installed Android emulator is the EaseUS RecExperts.

You can use this software to record conference meetings and game audio and decide the area of your screen capture.
