FaceTime calls will be accessible to Android and Windows users through the web browser, which will also be available on iOS, iPad OS, and Mac OS.
Video conferencing has become a necessity since the COVID-19 pandemic has confined us to our homes. Apple is trying to catch up to the most popular platforms for virtual meetings with friends and family, Zoom and Google Meet. Outside of the Apple ecosystem, FaceTime, Apple’s end-to-end encrypted video conferencing service, is now accessible.
FaceTime calls will be accessible to Android and Windows users through the web browser, which will be available on iOS, iPad OS, and Mac OS. The new function will be available with iOS 15 later this year, according to Apple. It was unveiled at the World Wide Developer Conference, which begins on June 7.
Apple has added features like schedule calls, SharePlay, and share your screen to allow Apple users to use FaceTime while still interacting with family and friends on other platforms. SharePlay will allow a group of individuals to see and listen to the same content while on the phone. Apple Music, Apple TV, Disney Plus, Hulu, HBO Max, and Twitch, among other apps, may be used to play music and videos.
Last but not least, Apple is introducing spatial audio, voice isolation to improve sound quality, grid view, and portrait mode to FaceTime chats to make them more engaging and straightforward.
