What is FaceTime?

FaceTime audio and video calls allow you to communicate with family and friends all around the world.

The History of FaceTime

FaceTime was first announced by Steve Jobs at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference on June 7, 2010. The video is encoded using H.264, and the audio is compressed with AAC. Those can face-to-face communicate with people who are far away thanks to him.




SharePlay is a new tool that allows users to share content with others during a FaceTime chat, such as music, movies, and TV episodes. While on a FaceTime call, users can see the content together. Users will be able to share web pages, apps, and more with other call participants via SharePlay. This is a function that may come in handy during business meetings.


New audio features

FaceTime is getting a new Voice Isolation function. This feature reduces background noise and allows call recipients to hear more clearly during conversations. FaceTime will also have spatial audio to give calls a more "conversational" vibe.


New video features

During a call, FaceTime will get a new Grid View that will allow users to see people in the same sized tiles. Grid mode allows you to see up to six people's faces at once. FaceTime's zoom capability will allow users to zoom in and out as needed, providing them more power. Portrait mode, a feature that allows users to soften the background during video calls, is also coming to FaceTime.
