I recently picked up a Galaxy S8 Plus on Verizon.
I have tried the above settings, I set it to auto record my calls. I have double and triple checked this setting.
When I get call or make a call, the icon show up like its going to record.  Then just disappears and the call is not recorded.
Same apps I had on my LG V10 which worked just fine, other than the ones that came with the phone.
I've been through the troubleshooting guide. NO other recording apps running.  Permissions are all set/enabled. App has not been force closed.
What else can I check to get this working?

Same here: unbranded Galaxy S8 with the settings described above:
no automatic call recording. No error message, it simply doesn't record.
(The button lights red, then switches off within the call).
The little "Indicator Icon" doesnt occur.
Tried it also with Record Mode 3/5, with Samsung Tune on/off.
Switched battery optimizing for boldbeast off - to prevent deep sleep.

Most possibly, you enabled the OK Google app in your phone. The microphone is occupied by OK Google, it is picking up sound from the microphone to recognize your "voice command", this blocks Boldbeast working.

Please disable the "Settings > Google > Search > Voice > OK Google detection > From any screen" option in your phone, then it works at once.

Yes! It works. Thank you so much!

Please:
- confirm you have set the "Call Settings - Auto Record Calls - Rule to Auto Record Calls" option correctly.
- check the [005] and [004] parts for the possible reasons in this page http://www.boldbeast.com/android/call_r … oting.html

The problem is already solved.

Apparently it was a problem with the memory card and randomly appeared a message that said something like "slow memory card" until I saw it.

When tested on internal storage it worked properly, so the card was damaged or was slow.  (Probably the last)


Old card: Samsung EVO 64gb UHS-I "U1"

New card: SanDisk Extreme 128gb UHS-I "U3" V30



Now the application works perfectly.


Thanks and regards

I was getting the same problem with the red record light coming on for about five seconds then turning off
I set my phone to below settings and did a soft reset
all works perfectly
the only problem I have now is trying to get the activation code

- Record Mode: 5
- Tune Audio Effect: No
- Tune Audio Route: Group3
- Tune Samsung1: Yes
- Tune Samsung2: Yes
- Tune Samsung3: No

Do soft reset

The application is working almost perfectly on my s8 +, though the caller's voice is much lower than mine, sometimes inaudible. Any easy solution?

A common call recorder in the market has exactly the problem you said.
Boldbeast Recorder is different, it can fix the problem perfectly without root. Please test again, just use suggest settings above, you'll record calls crystal clear in two sides.

So far there is no user reported any bluetooth problems, so I believe bluetooth works great also.

I gave this a try and even did some of the trouble shooting but all it was turn on and turn off a few seconds later on my S8+.
What else can I do to get this app working on my phone?

I've tried all your suggestions listed and still cannot get it to work on my new S8+ . The link you posted on the post leads to a 404 not found error. Any other suggestions to get this to work?

Thanks

When making or receiving calls thru speaker "Hands free" the caller is not recorded. On record only my voice.

- Record Mode: 1 or 5
- Tune Audio Effect: No
- Tune Audio Route: Group3
- Tune Samsung1: Yes
- Tune Samsung2: Yes
- Tune Samsung3: No
- disable Settings > Google > Search > Voice > OK Google detection >

So the ROM has a bug inside - when you switch on the speaker you can only record your own voice. No matter what recorder in the market you are using the problem is always there.

If you don't root the phone, you should wait Samsung to fix it in future ROM updates.
If you root the phone, Boldbeast Recorder can fix it.

Hi, I'm having some issues with recording.

I press the record button and start talking on the phone. When I look at the phone (while on call) the recording has stopped. So from the display is turning off (which happens when you talk on the phone/holding it near ear/face) and back on the recording stops.

There is no recording logged because it doesn't log/save calls under a few seconds (if I'm right?). This means it isn't really starting?

I have default settings on s8. What other info is needed? I think I have the latest updates..

Thanks

Most possibly the recorder failed to start recording, please
- remove all other recorders.
- disable OK Google.
- disable Bixby.
- click the "Settings > Set Default Settings" item in Boldbeast Recorder.
Then it works at once. More info: http://www.boldbeast.com/android/call_r … oting.html

Yes, the recorder abandons the recording if it is too short. You can change the "Abandon Short Record (seconds)" option in the app to tune the behaviour.

hi,

after latest official samsung OS update last week, recording of the other side stopped working. I hear only my voice in recordings. Not even a low volume hint of the other side, it's completely inaudible.
