Parrot Voice Recorder Pro Loses its Head on BlackBerry 10


The awesome Parrot Voice Recorder has gone headless on BlackBerry 10 with the release of v2.2 on OS 10.2.1+. This new release gives the pro version of the app headless support so the app no longer needs to be left open to record phone calls and easily allows you to record in the background. They have also added some nice tweaks to the free version. Check out the change log below:

Play Record

What’s new in 2.2:

Parrot Pro:

– Headless Call Recording: Parrot no longer needs to be left open in order to record phone calls. The app will remain open in headless mode (with minimal CPU usage) even after you close it. Calls can be recorded automatically and instant notifications are displayed when recording begins and ends. Headless call recording and instant notifications can be turned on and off in the app settings.


– Many small UI tweaks to give a more consistent experience. New splash screen and updated icon.

– A number of minor bug fixes and speed improvements.

New Permissions:

– Headless: Allows Parrot to run while in the background. This is used to monitor for incoming and outgoing calls for users with Pro mode. The app will then record the phone call (if enabled) and use minimal resources. Users who do not wish to record calls can disallow this permission.

– Notifications Control: Allows Parrot to post notifications to the hub when calls start and stop recording. Users who do not wish to record calls can disallow this permission.

  1. I am curious as how these headless apps are going to effect the Battery?? Any Idea?

  2. They use very little battery. The app only activates when you record. The reset of time it just sits there waiting for you to press the button to record.

    My Voice and Call recording apps use less than 0.01% because it doesn’t do anything in background until you start recording. Of course other Headless apps are different by design.
