FaceTime is a video telephone / video chat service somewhat similar to Skype and Google Hangouts that makes it possible to conduct one-on-one video calls between newer Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac notebooks and desktops. There are several options to place a FaceTime call. Users open the FaceTime app, enter the other person’s phone or email address, then tap the video or audio icons. On an iPhone, users can start a FaceTime call during a phone call by tapping on the FaceTime icon. Users may also initiate FaceTime through the iOS Contacts app.
