Developed by Apple, Face Time is a video and audio calling service which is similar to that of Google Hangouts or Skype. Face Time is basically a one-on-one video calling app, which requires an Apple ID and can only be accessed by Apple users. According to predictions, the newer versions might work with 4G or even 3G connection, but for the time being it requires a Wi-Fi connection. However, for the jailbroken users of iPhone, it is possible to run Face Time with a 3G connection with the help of several applications. But according to Lifewire, when iOS 6 was introduced in the year 2012, this Wi-Fi restriction was then removed as it would offer high data bills yet with a poor and slow performance.
For the newest members of Apple devices, here’s how you can set up FaceTime (just in case you are not aware of):
- STEP 1: Go to settings and there tap “Face Time.”
- STEP 2: Turn the FaceTime on and then tap on “Use Your Apple ID.”
- STEP 3: Enter the Apple ID and the respective password and tap on “sign in” option.
- Step 4: Verify the see the login details and tap the option “Next.”
- Step 5: Select a phone number along with an email address for outgoing and incoming FaceTime calls.
But before setting up FaceTime here’s presenting the device compatibility. FaceTime works only on the devices that are mentioned here. First, it works on iPhone 4 and higher, second on iPad 2 and higher, third on the 4th generation iPod touch and higher and last on Macs with cameras.
What are the things that can be done via FaceTime?
Yes, this is probably the most important part of this article. So here go the things that you can do via your FaceTime only if you are an Apple user:
- New addressed can be added such as work or school address, but most importantly you can remove them anytime you want to. In this way, users will have lesser confusion and better experience.
- Automatically, FaceTime gets activated. But if you wish to restrict its access because of your children then there you are! You can do that too.
- There’s a blocking mode in FaceTime. You can even block a contact if you wish to. Whether it’s a prank caller or a spammer or you friend or relative, you can make them silence forever. So that’s a big deal, isn’t it?
Debuted in 2010, recently Face Time’s support extended to other Apple devices such as iPad 2, Macs with Mac OS X Snow Leopard (v10.6.6), the fourth generation of iPod touch and more. But as every good thing have limitations, Face Time too, have some requirements. On iOS it requires an iOS 4 or higher and a supported device, while, on the other hand, on Mac, it requires Mac OS X 10.6.6 or higher, a compatible camera along with the FaceTime app (which is preloaded on most Mac products).
