Top 10 Free Fake Call Apps for Android
#1 Voice Changer – By AndroidRock
Available on Google Play Store for download is this lightweight Fake calling app called Voice Changer. A stellar rating of 4.4 stars and great user reviews, should reassure you that voice changer is one of the good ones.
What is the key to making a good prank call? The voice modulation! Because, if your friend recognizes your voice, then he would obviously be able to identify you before you could even begin with your fake call and laughs!
The Voice changer application is meant exactly for that. It offers a range of voice changing effects such as a robot, chipmunk, big alien, small alien, old man, child, foreigner, drunk, bee, chorus, underwater, devil, creepy movie, duck, etc. You can mix up multiple effects while recording to confuse your friend even more in the course of the call.
The interface of this app is extremely simple and generic. You will be able to figure it out within seconds. The way to use this app is – first, you have to record your audio. Next, you will open the audio and apply your effects to it. The feature that will be the most useful while prank calling is, that you can view and edit saved audios, and also share them on social media applications like WhatsApp, Messenger, and also via Bluetooth.
Since you can pre-record everything and keep it ready, you don’t have to worry about bursting into laughter while being on the actual call. You can just sit back and enjoy while your friend gets trolled. Being a free app, it does trouble you with advertisements every now and then, but that’s all worth it if you can fool your friend.
