With the advent of smartphones, things look much easier when it comes to recording calls. There are many apps that help you record a call in smart phones. Some of the latest models also have an in-built smart phone recorder.

The voicemail will start recording the call and you need to tap ‘Merge Calls’ on your screen. This will record the phone conversation on your voicemail. Once done, share the recorded call by exporting it to your Mac using Airdrop or Voice Memos, etc.
