It seems that OnePlus has changed its phone models, OnePlus 8T, OnePlus Nord, and OnePlus 9 series. Instead of including their own communication apps, they set Google’s dialer apps as the default. However, OnePlus recently released a new app for their phones, which includes a call recording feature. Do you want to know about this change?
It seems that some users of older OnePlus models are not happy with this change and have been trying to sideload the original OnePlus stock apps since the launch of the new devices. However, it is important to note that any other third-party app is not guaranteed to work and may cause problems with the phone’s functionality. But now this app has been re-launched by OnePlus which supports the inbuilt call recording feature.
If you don’t like Google apps, you can also use OnePlus stock apps for dialer, messaging, and contact management. The guide to download and use it is shown here.
How to Download OnePlus Stock Dialer APK
- Go to the below link and download the OnePlus stock dialer APK
- Go to the file manager on your phone and navigate to the folder where the APK file was downloaded
- Tap on the APK file to install it
- Open the apps and grant the required permissions
Note: (1) After successful installation, you have to set it as the default app. (2) Apart from this, you have to disable the Google Dialer app on your phone.

How to Disable the Google Dialer app on OnePlus
To disable the Google Dialer app on your OnePlus device, you can follow these steps:
- Go to the Settings app on your phone
- Scroll down and tap on “Apps & Notifications”
- Find the “Phone” app and tap on it
- Tap on “Application Information”
- Tap on the “Disable” button
By disabling an app, it won’t be able to open or function on your device, but it will still be installed on your device and take up storage space. If you want to completely remove it from your device, you can tap on “Uninstall” instead of “Disable”.
How to set any dialer app as Default
Also, if you want to use a different dialer app as default you can go to Settings > Apps & notifications > Phone app > Open in app settings > App defaults > Select the app you want to use.
But I don’t recommend it. Also, keep in mind that disabling or uninstalling system apps can cause problems with other apps or the overall functionality of your device. However, always back up your data before doing so.
