What is FaceTime?
FaceTime is Apple’s voice and video calling app, which is included with Apple’s mobile devices and computers. FaceTime calls can be one-to-one or with a group of people. Calls can be made to either a person’s Apple ID (email address) or a phone number that’s associated with an Apple account. With FaceTime Audio, users can make voice calls over wi-fi without using their mobile data or plan minutes. FaceTime links enable users to create a shareable link to access a FaceTime call via a web browser on any platform, without an Apple account.
Platforms: macOS, iOS, web browser
