How to Use FaceTime on Mac

FaceTime is an Apple-owned mobile app, pre-installed on all brand devices, allowing free video calls to be made from an iPhone, iPad, Mac and iPod Touch. With this tool, it is possible to video chat one by one or with up to 32 people simultaneously and for free.

Just as it is possible to make group video calls on WhatsApp, Apple’s FaceTime also allows you to do so. The tool is ideal for classes with large groups of people or virtual meetings between friends and family, something very useful to keep quarantined and avoid leaving home while being in contact with others.

To use FaceTime you must have the updated version corresponding to each Apple device. If you have an iPad, the operating system must be 12.1.4 or higher, on a MacOS the version must be 10.14.3 or higher. In the iPhone, iPads and iPod Touch the tool can work in old versions, not only in iOS 13. However, users may suffer from visual limitations having access only to the audio of the interactions depending on the operating system they use.
