FaceTime is Apple’s video and audio chat platform that iPhone users can interact with using the standard FaceTime video protocol or the FaceTime audio feature.
FaceTime, the great video calling app that was basically introduced for the iPhone 4, is Apple’s solution to Skype. You can stay in touch with your friends and family by video chat on Apple devices. When you open FaceTime, it instantly appears on the screen and you will need to sign in with your Apple account to get started. Once done, FaceTime On Android will sync with your calendar so you can call anyone with an iOS device right away.
If you have an iPhone with FaceTime, your other devices can also utilize your phone number to make FaceTime calls, as long as you are signed in to the same iCloud account on all devices.
If you don’t have an iPhone, FaceTime can be set up by using the FaceTime app using an email address on an iPad, iPod touch, or Mac.
This application is probably the most popular video chat app out there. From video chat to audio calls to group calls, FaceTime is a great multi-functional contact with which you can easily make individual or group calls. However, this only works in the Apple ecosystem, so you won’t be able to make calls to people using Samsung Galaxy or Mi phones.
However, FaceTime On Computer is not perfect. While blending with your contacts on iPhone makes sense, it is less useful on Mac and some users may find that the contacts are duplicated or mixed up on their Mac. This is made complicated by the fact that you cannot add direct contacts to the FaceTime App. However, you must do it through the agenda. If you are not using the address book, you are good to go. It would also be nice to have FaceTime open without watching the video all the time!
