Facetime is an iOS and Mac supported video and audio calling platform. You can make calls only between two or more iOS or Mac users. There is no option to use facetime on Android. It is free and never goes through the phone network as a regular call. Facetime is available on the Apple app store and hence, you can install it easily on your Mac devices.
Why using Facetime on Mac?
FaceTime on iPhone can have display 3 to 5 video tiles of the active user at a time and its size will be small to view. But FaceTime on Mac can display up to 9 video tiles of the active user. Also, we can have a clear view of all during FaceTime.
Note: FaceTime is available only for Mac OS X 10.6 and above users.
