    Because Hangouts can directly take photos for sending but it does have a video call capability as well.

    Hangouts itself does not have a video call recording feature, no.

    But not aware of video recording

    But it still needs access to the video record API to be able to do video calls. (There's no separate "video calls" API.)

    So it means it’s asking permission for accessing and NOT recording.

    It's asking permission to the API - which is used for both. (Permissions doesn't mean "I'm going to", it means "I need to call the API".)

    Am not able to understand it clearly...but thank you for the answer.
    What I clearly want to ask is whether it records video call if so where does it store it.

    I think you answered your own question -

    And hangouts clearly says that it doesn’t have video call recording feature
    If Hangouts doesn't record calls, there's nothing to go in search of the storage location for those recordings.

    It's not recording video calls. I suspect they just used the wrong terminology when discussing the permissions (or that's the standard permission terminology used for capturing video). I don't think anyone is recording your Hangouts videos for devious purposes.

    There's one "hook" Android has for the cameras - to make or to receive video calls, to record video, to take pictures- it's all the same "hook", the camera API, which Hangouts needs permission to access.

    ...but thank you for the answer.
    You're welcome.

    (As B. Diddy said, maybe Hangouts should just ask for permission to access the camera.)
