This video explains how to use the new Group FaceTime calling feature, which lets up to 32 people chat simultaneously on iOS devices and Macs.
- With the release of the iOS 12.1 update in October, 2018…Apple added the ability to make group FaceTime calls.…So your no longer limited to having video or audio…FaceTime chats with just one other person.…You can now chat with up to 32 people at once,…as long as you have a more recent iOS device.…You need to be using an iPhone 6S or later,…the iPad Pro or later, an iPad Air 2,…or an iPad Mini 4 or later.…Devices older than those…will only support audio group calls.…You could also call people on Macs…running MacOS Mojave 10.14.1 or later.…
Alright, so let's see how this works.…I'm going to open up the FaceTime app.…So from here you can place a call the same way as before,…by tapping the names, numbers, or addresses…of people you've previously FaceTime chatted with.…So for example, I can tap my friend, Nick's name here.…(beeping)…I can see what I'm looking like until Nick answers.…And there he is, hey Nick.…- Hey, how you doing?…- Pretty good, thanks for helping me out with this.…- No problem.…- Alright so now, Nick, you're on a Mac, correct?…
