    A yes and no answer.


    The app has no abilities on this front itself.


    However Quicktime Player can be used to record the screen during a chat.

    The FaceTime App has to remain in front of others if you do this.


    There is also Screeny

    If you're thinking of recording a call without the other party's consent, get legal advice first.

    I think what everyone is missing in the original question is the value of recording Facetime Chats in the context of easy to record Video Podcasts. This is a great concept for "Interview" style Q&A, "How to training" and similar positive utilizations. There are Display Recorder apps that worked prior to iOS 6.1.3. This is a great concept and ought to be explored
