Disclaimer: this call is being recorded. Listen to it here:

Yup. We teach you how to record phone calls with your phone…

Anchor, a free app for iPhone and Android, recently added a new feature that lets you easily record phone calls. Plus, a few minutes after you hang up, the app is supposed to email you a written transcript of the call.

This is how to record a call with Anchor:

  1. Launch the app on your phone
  2. If you haven’t created an account yet, do that stuff first
  3. From the home screen of the Anchor app, press the big, red button at the bottom with the + symbol inside of it
  4. On the next screen, swipe to the left to enter the “Interview” mode
  5. On this screen, you can choose to dial a number, or pick a phone number from your contacts
  6. Call the person you want to record, and you’re good to go
