Prank calls aren’t the popular medium they once were. Caller ID, a more sensitive society, and legal issues made prank call comedy too difficult to do consistently well. However, there is a small, loyal fan base for prank calls and there are a few apps to help with that. There are two types of prank call apps as far as we can tell. The first are apps that fake voices and spoof caller IDs and the second are sources where you can listen or view prank calls by other people. We have a healthy smattering of both here. Here are the best prank call apps for Android!


Amazon Prime Video

Price: Free / $12.99 per month / $119.99 per year

Most video streaming services have comedy of various forms and that usually includes content like prank call shows. You can browse through Hulu, Netflix, or whatever other service you use. However, we did find that Amazon Prime Video has Crank Yankers, one of the bigger prank call shows from the last 20 years or so. Thus, we’ll recommend that one first, but feel free to search others for other prank call shows.

Automatic Call Recorder

Price: Free / $6.99

Automatic Call Recorder is what the name implies. This app records your phone calls for later playback. It’s mostly useful for business and personal uses. However, something like this can also help with prank callers. You can record each call and play it back later for the fun of it. The app also supports Google Drive and Dropbox backups. The pro version is a bit pricey, but adds some good customization features to the list.

Caller ID Faker by Mathrawk

Price: Free with in-app purchases

Caller ID Faker is, well, a caller ID spoofer app. It bills itself as a prank call app but it only really hides your number. That’s more than enough for some people. It uses a third party call service to spoof the phone number and the in-app purchases add minutes to your account. You enter the phone number you want to call and the number you want the call to come from and the app takes care of the rest.

JokesPhone

Price: Free with in-app purchases

JokesPhone is a prank call app with a bunch of pre-recorded prank calls. You place the call and the app takes care of the prank for you. Each call is made from a third party service so it’s not traceable to your mobile device. Additionally, each call is recorded for your amusement. Like most, you pay for calls and the cost is a little expensive. It probably doesn’t help when a call goes to voicemail and you lose your call credit. It works well aside from that. There is another app, Juasapp, that is a carbon copy of this one just with different colors. You can use either one.


MyPhoneRobot

Price: Free with in-app purchases

MyPhoneRobot is one of the more popular prank call apps on Android. It’s one of the prank call apps with pre-recorded messages. You pay for credits, place the call, and the app does its thing. It also records the prank calls for your enjoyment later. It’s nothing too absurd or unique in this space. The credits can be pricey and the recorded messages are hit or miss. However, it does work and it also hides your phone number.

Pocket Casts

Price: $3.99

Pocket Casts is one of the most popular podcast apps and it’s a good spot for prank call fans. There are a variety of podcasts with a prank call theme, including The Prank Call Podcast, Madhouse Radio, The Snow Plow Show, and many others. In fact, podcasts are where you’re likely to find the most recent in prank call humor. If Pocket Casts isn’t up your alley, we recommend trying Google Podcasts, Doggcatcher, or Podcast Addict.

Prank Caller

Price: Free with in-app purchases

Prank Caller is another prank calling service. It has pre-recorded calls that feature a variety of topics. You use credits to pay for a call and then the app conducts and records the call for you. It offers a few free calls per day and that’s great for those who only want to do the occasional prank. The UI isn’t anything you don’t see with most of these other apps, but we appreciate the Material Design on this one. We also like how the pre-recorded messages pause until someone responds.

Spoof Call

Price: Free with in-app purchases

Spoof Call is a very simple app. It works across a variety of use cases but it’s totally usable by pranksters as well. Basically, you fork out a few bucks for some credits and make a phone call. The app lets you change your number to something else. It’s not a prank call app in that it doesn’t have any additional features for prank calls. It’s just a call spoofer app. Calls cost $0.10 per minute so it’s not bad if you only want to make a few short prank calls.

Spotify, Google Play Music, Apple Music, etc

Price: Free / $9.99 per month (usually)

Spotify, Google Play Music, Apple Play Music, and other music streaming sites are actually not too terrible for prank call fans. Most of these services have classics like The Jerky Boys, even if their humor didn’t age well with the times. If a prank call album exists anywhere on the Internet, it’s likely at least one of the many streaming services available. They all cost about the same and have close to the same selection.

YouTube

Price: Free / $12.99 per month

YouTube is a good option for much the same reasons as Amazon Prime Video or Spotify. There is a metric ton of prank call videos on YouTube. You can watch them for entertainment or to get some ideas. You can find clips from famous names in the medium like Crank Yankers and The Jerky Boys on YouTube. The service is free with ads or you can pay the $12.99 per month to remove ads and enable background play.
