Build 10149: FLAC support is here, Call recording may finally be here soon

Build 10149 recordIt seems a much-complained about yet non-existing feature will soon be here with a Windows 10 Mobile upcoming build. The native Windows 10 Mobile “Voice recorder” app may e able to support call recording with a future update. There are enough hints in Build 10149 to believe this.

If you are on Build 10149, then you can check folders on the device in the File explorer app, before and after opening “voice recorder” app. A folder called “Recorded calls” doesn’t appear, until you open the voice recorder app for the first time, after the installation of the Build 10149. Not only this if you check app permissions it does mention “Recorded calls folder”.

It also seems that Windows 10 Mobile Build 10149 finally brings the “FLAC audio support” to Windows 10 Mobile. It was confirmed by Microsoft and while we never checked it on older builds, it is working in Build 10149. Check the screenshots below.

Windows 10 Mobile FLACThanks  for the tip. Cheers!!

    support lossless formats it’s pointless without high quality DAC processor build in. Fingers crossed for new Lumias 😉

      they probably will add a DAC processor inside the new flagship Lumia’s to take advantage of lossless sound formats. Just as they take advantage of their camera processor imaging with RAW files support. Hence, I did my research, newer Qualcomm Snapdragon processors has its own DAC as a standard, plus Wolfson may co-operate with Qualcomm on these technology. e.g. a Vivo X5Max Snapdragon 615 processor, a mid range phone has one! http://www.phonearena.com/news/Phones-for-audiophiles-5-Android-handsets-with-quality-sound-processors_id63856
