How To Record Facebook Messenger Calls

Record your Messenger calls

You use Facebook Messenger to have a conversation with one or more of your Facebook contacts. Messenger has many different call features like audio and video calls, group calls, etc. For various reasons, you might someday want to record a conversation on your Facebook Messenger. 

Recording a text conversation is pretty easy, as you just need to take a screenshot of your device (PC, Android, iPhone, etc.). However, what about recording calls on Facebook Messenger. You may want to record a Messenger call for evidence purposes, for fun, or to make them memorable at a later date. Whatever the reason may be, recording Facebook Messenger calls is not easy as you might think. So, we have put this article to help you solve this problem.  

Recording a Messenger call sounds all fun, but you need to be aware of the legal implications of doing so before you start actually doing it. As recording a Facebook Messenger call can sometimes be taken as a violation of privacy, there are rules that are established for this very purpose. Recording a Messenger audio or video call is similar to recording a telephone call. The laws regarding call recording differ from one region to another. 

In the United States, there are Two-party consent states (where all the parties of the conversation need to be aware that the conversation is being recorded), or One-party consent states (where the consent of only one party can do the recording of a call). 

Similarly, call recording rules in many different countries are different, along with their admissibility in court. You can look at this Wikipedia article to understand what the rules of call recording in your country are. And if your country is not mentioned in the article, you need to contact the relevant law department of your country to understand whether it is legal to record a Messenger call or not.

Record Facebook Messenger Calls on iPhone

You can record your Facebook Messenger calls on your iPhone in two ways. You can use a built-in screen recorder on your iPhone or iPad, or a third-party app for call recording. 

Use built-in Screen Recorder 

  • Go to Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls on your iOS device. 
  • Scroll down and search for Screen Recording. 
  • Next to Screen Recording, you will see a green plus (+) icon on the left, tap on that icon. 
  • Now, go to Messenger and start a call.
  • Tap on the Record icon from the Command Center to start your screen recording on your iPhone. 
  • You can choose Microphone Audio for recording only audio calls. 
  • To stop the recording, open the red status bar at the top of your screen and tap Stop, or go to Command Center and tap on the red stop icon.  

Important note: The built-in screen recorder of iOS is not very reliable. Sometimes it does not work (especially for older devices and iOS versions of iOS 10 or lower). In such cases, you can only choose a third-party app to record calls on your iPhone. 

Use third-party applications

There are several third-party screen recording applications for recording your audio and video calls on your iOS device. Apps like Apowersoft or TechSmith Capture help record your iPhone screen or audio so you can record your Facebook Messenger calls. 

To use these apps to record Messenger calls, follow these steps. 

  • Enable Screen Recording on your iOS device through Settings > Customize Controls
  • Go to Facebook Messenger and start a call. 
  • Then, go to Command Center and choose the third-party app for screen recording. 
  • Record the call using the third-party app. 
  • Finally, stop the recording, edit, and save your recorded Messenger call.
