This is a way to record FaceTime calls with voice using one or more Apple devices. I hope you find this simple guide useful. If you’re having trouble with your Mac, restart your Mac and then follow the recording steps above.

Not all countries (and powerful federal state governments) allow telephone recordings. FaceTime is also a form of call, so the same rules are guaranteed to apply. In this PDF, you can learn about the laws regarding recording conversations in all 50 states of the United States. For other countries, please see this Wikipedia page.

The consensus is that it’s better to notify others before recording a call (especially if you use it for non-personal purposes!). You wouldn’t want your private call to be recorded without your information. The same is true if the roles are reversed.
