Next version of Android may mean end of voice-recording apps, here’s why

We already know that Google launches a new Android OS version every year and this year too the tradition will be the same. The search giant is expected to launch Android P in the OS market. Although nothing is official about the new OS version, we may have got our first hint on one of the features that will be arriving in Android P.
As spotted by Neowin, number of commits or lines of codes in the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) are seen with the term “call recording tone”. This is described as a 1400Hz frequency tone that is said to repeat itself after every 15 seconds while the call recording is in process.
Also mentioned is that the other party will also be able to hear the tone after 15 seconds. The feature is said to include in order to “meet regulatory compliance requirements.” Some codes also indicate that carriers can choose to disable this feature. So does the inclusion of this new feature means end ofFor the past couple of years, Google has been introducing the next Android version’s first developer beta in March, followed by an official introduction at Google IO and eventually the final OTA rollout by October with the launch of new Pixel devices. We expect the same chain of events for the unveiling and launch of Android P.
We are still a few months away from this year’s Google I/O event, the search giant has already started teasing the event. The first teaser for the Google I/O 2018 came few days ago in the form of a tweet, which led to a bunch of puzzles. Solving them revealed the date and venue of IO 2018.
The event, like last time will take place in Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, CA. The conference is scheduled to begin on May 8 and will conclude on May 10.
Several OEMs like OnePlus and Nokia (HMD Global) have already confirmed they will roll out Android P to their flagship devices.
