Android and Windows users can finally join FaceTime calls. During the WWDC keynote, Apple announced that FaceTime will be available online so that users can make calls from Android devices and Windows PCs. The video calling service was previously only available on iOS devices and Mac.
With this update, Apple is turning FaceTime into a video calling service like Zoom. FaceTime will allow you to capture the link of a scheduled call so that you can share it with people in advance and join at the right time.
A release date was not immediately announced. It looks like the fall features will be released with iOS 15.
Apple has announced several FaceTime updates for iOS 15. There is a new option for theater rendering, a sound isolation feature to improve sound quality, support for spatial audio and the option to blur your photo with Portrait Mode.
There is also a brand new feature called Shareplay. Shareplay allows a group of people to watch or listen at the same time. This feature allows you to pull songs and videos or share your screen. Some major names, including Disney Plus, Hulu, HBO Max, and Twitch, support this feature. Apple Music and Apple TV Plus definitely support this.
