Even though there are tons of video calling apps available, I still like using FaceTime both on iPhone and Mac. There is one little but important feature which I often miss whenever I use this app is the option to record FaceTime call on iPhone and Mac.
Thanks to QuickTime Player and some other third-party software, it's a bit easy to record FaceTime call on Mac. Unfortunately, that's not the case on iPhone and iPad. Currently, there is no way you can record FaceTime call right from your iOS device without taking help of Mac. Any way you want to record those special moments while chatting with your friends for the keepsake? Let's find out!

The Bottom Line
There are several third-party software such as, Apowersoft, ecamm which allows you to record your FaceTime call with ease. ecamm lets you to convert your calls into MP3 files as well. With it, you can split audio and video tracks after the call. So, if you wish to not just record your FaceTime call but also tweak it to your best liking, you have the option to do that.

Having said that, I wish there was a bit easier way to record FaceTime call right from the app itself. I hope Apple adds the option to record call in the video app sooner than later.
