Audio call recording in Teams
How about recording an audio call when initiating a Teams call, similar to how Skype for Business does ?
Thanks for your feedback. Two updates on this:
1) Audio 1:1 call recording feature is on the backlog. We’ll update when we have more details to share.
2) Compliance recording is being worked on, partnering with 3rd party providers. Please see the posting below:

Any updates about when will this feature be available? Actually I find it strange that it's not there in the first place.

Not having 1:1 call recording is not just a problem for some of my customers, but also a problem for myself when we need to call a customer directly about something that we need to have evidence of what was discussed during the call. The feature is not there!
Meeting is the only way to have any call recording, which is a hassle when you have a customer driving or on their mobile and they are not keen to join a conference call.
We cannot switch to Microsoft Phone System until 1:1 call recording is enabled. Can we get this on the roadmap?
Any updates on 1:1 Call recording?

Call recording for 1:1 calls is must have - and ought to be a fairly small item given the recording is available for group calls....
Alex tech commented
When we are taking phone calls from colleagues while driving for example, I can't take notes and sometimes we bounce so many ideas that we lose track later or forget about most of them.
We should have a call recording facility on both mobile and desktop clients that makes the recording go automatically to a sharepoint or personal one drive space where you can access it as a mp3 file. Also it should have transcribing similarly to what happens with voicemail using using timestamps, that way we can easily search through the call and find the relevant parts. Seeking the audio file through a long 1 or 2 hour call to find a specific topic we discussed to grab the notes may be very time consuming.

Any updates on this?
This is also very important for us.
For everyone on this thread, there is hope. "Call recording for compliance—Since many industries have regulatory policies that require the recording of calls and meetings, we’re partnering with compliance recording partners, including ASC, NICE, and Verint to add this capability to Teams."
Call recording is one of the most important features for us as a prerequisite to use Teams in the future.

Very important, this is one of many features Teams "VoIP" is lacking on the enterprise scale.
We are waiting for 1:1 recording to be enabled before switching the rest of our firm to Teams calling. We have discovered a workaround though (as we have been testing the system) that is not a tenable long-term solution. You can start a 1:1 call, then add another participant to make it a 3 person call. The call recording is enabled as soon as it becomes a group call. Even after the third person drops off, the call recording function remains! So, I've been calling my cell phone (as a third party) and hanging up so that I can have the recording functionality for 1:1 calls.

Please enable Peer to Peer call recording in Teams. As of now only Microsoft Teams meetings and Group calls can be recorded but not 1:1 calls.
This topic has been going on for a while. Please provide an update on the progress.
Even the official roadmap does not mention any update/progres on this topic.

Hi, team, Recording options need to be prioritized urgently please. We need MS to fire up a road plan.
Danny Murphy commented
Come on this must be getting worked on by now. Literally stopping so many customers from making the switch and theyre all having to sign into new contracts with their phone providers
It doesn't seem like there is any response from MS on this since August 2018 when it was still "on the backlog". Any update microsoft - this is a key bit of functionality especially is this day and age!!!

Voted! Required features for alot of customers based on legal compliance.
Needed for legal compliance +1
Hah - I'm so surprised this isn't included already. Just went searching for how to enable it and I found here that it's not a feature yet. Added my vote!
