Please find below some of the limitations of the WhatsApp Phone Capture:

  • Mobile voice calls are recorded from the mobile phone.
  • In mobile video calls only the audio channel is being recorded.
  • In recorded group calls, the metadata of participants might not include all people on the group call (this restriction does not apply in 1-on-1 calls).
  • If you switch off your phone for long periods while using WhatsApp Web/Desktop, we recommend adding WPA+.
  • Works as the consumer version of the WhatsApp application (not with WhatsApp Business app), which must be activated with mobile phones.
  • Old devices might experience higher battery usage in case the Battery Saver Wake-up mode was not activated.
  • On Android devices, broadcast messages are indicated from the sending party only.
  • Files exceeding the maximum allowed archive file size of 25 Mb will be archived with name, type and notification about its exceeded maximum attachment size limit. The file itself won’t be archived.
  • Share Extension feature disabled.
  • Screen broadcast sharing disabled.
  • Companion Mode disabled.
  • WhatsApp Meta may disable an account which was inactive for 3 + months (there were no incoming/outgoing messages to another receiver).  If WhatsApp Meta’s account was disabled by Meta, it can be reactivated but WPA TM App should be reinstalled for correct archiving process.
