When it is done, all the third-party apps will lose their core functionality.

For some years, Google has been making concerted efforts to rein in call recording. It first removed the feature of call recording in Android 10 version and said it will not be available as part of its privacy and security strategy.

But Google also provided a backdoor entry for these apps via Accessibility API, which will be removed from May 11.
