One of the things people love about Whatsapp is the ability to do calls/video calls taking advantage of the connection data enabled on the smartphone. This can be especially useful if you are traveling to theabroad, or if you have run out of minutes to make a call. In some cases, people would like to record these calls, even though Whatsapp doesn't provide this functionality directly. However there are gods methods that allow you to record calls and video calls on Whatsapp.

    Since the Cydia Store closed it became impossible to directly record calls on the iPhone. In fact, thanks to the jailbreak it was possible to use an application capable of recording calls.
