5 of the Best Fake Call Apps for Android [June 2019]
Fake call apps may seem lame at first glance but they can offer more than just a few minutes of fun. If you’re stuck in a meeting, are on a boring date or want to get out of a trip to see grandma, faking an important call could save you a lot of time that would could be doing something much more interesting. For those reasons, I have put together this quick guide to the best fake call apps for Android in 2019.
There is a lot more you can do than just pranking friends with a fake call app. Sure, they offer a few minutes of fun while you pretend the President is calling you or your celebrity crush is calling to arrange a date but there is more to them. As mentioned at the top, the ability to fake a call to escape something you don’t want to have to contend with is just one of the ways these apps can help.
Fake call apps for Android
Most of the apps I mention here are free. They will likely be ad-supported but otherwise will offer a little light hearted entertainment or a quick escape for no more than having to view an ad for 30 seconds. I tested each on my phone and they all seemed to work fine and contained no hidden surprises.
Fake call – prank
Fake call – prank does exactly what it says on the tin. It’s free and ad supported and allows you to set your own caller ID, name, number and image or you can select from some pre-programmed callers such as the police. You can even set a specific ringtone so you know it’s a prank and not a real call. If you really want to go for it, you can pre-record a message to fake the call too.
The app works well and looks very similar to the default Android calling app. Used properly, you can easily fake a call with this.
Fake Call works in a similar way. It looks like the standard Android calling app, allows you to set a caller, ID, number, image and record a message. Create fake call logs to show previous calls and even schedule a call for a specific time. This last feature is what makes it useful for escaping boring situations. You can easily set it up for a specific time and then ignore the call if it isn’t so boring or take the call if it is.
The app is free and ad supported and works well. You do have to keep the app running in the background if you have scheduled a call but otherwise the app works fine.
Fake Call iStyle
Fake Call iStyle is another fake call app for Android worth checking out. It enables you to set up your own caller, name it, give it a fake number and it looks like the standard Android call app. The only thing you cannot do with this app is record the caller. This means you need to step away when taking your fake call but otherwise the app works well.
It’s free and ad supported and works well enough to make it worthy of this list.
Fake Call – Fake Caller ID
Fake Call – Fake Caller ID is another worthy contender in this list of fake calling apps. It’s quite a polished app that looks a lot like the default Android calling app. You can set your own caller ID, number, identity, image and even record a call to simulate the caller. There is a schedule option too which adds to its utility. The very simple design includes everything you need to escape a boring situation.
The app is free and contains ads but there is a premium version if you think you’ll use it regularly.
Fake call Prank
Fake call Prank is my final fake call app for Android. It works well, has a decent design and all the features you’re looking for. You can schedule multiple incoming calls, set up caller ID, incoming number and identity, hear a realistic voice and it has several caller app designs to fit your phone manufacturer, useful if you use a UI like Samsung. It will also fake SMS too if you need it to.
The app is free and ad supported and worked well during testing. I could even fake a call history for a little extra realism.
Those are what I think are the best fake call apps for Android around right now. Each does what it says it will while creating a credible scenario for escaping any kind of boring situation.
