Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Using FaceTime, part of iOS 5: iPhone and iPod touch Essential Training.
Built-in to all iOS devices with front -facing cameras like the iPhone 4 and…later and the 4th generation iPod touch, is a feature called Facetime, which is…a video-chatting feature that lets you and the person you're calling both see…and hear each other.…It's a great way to have a face-to-face conversation, show someone where you're…calling them from or just to see your friend's expression when you share some…cool news with them.…Now, in order to use Facetime both callers have to be on an iOS device with a…front-facing camera and both callers need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network.…Other than that, there's no set-up required, although you might want to go into…Settings>Facetime and just make sure Facetime is turned ON.…
One way to make a Facetime call is to first make a regular phone call.…I'm going to dial my friend Nick from my favorites list here.…So, now Nick has answered the call.…I know he has an iPhone4 and we're both connected to our own Wi-Fi networks, so…I'm going to tap the Facetime button.…
