Apple has announced a number of other FaceTime updates coming in iOS 15. There’s a new grid view option, a voice isolation feature to improve sound quality, spatial audio support, and the option to blur your background with “portrait mode.”
Android and Windows users will finally also be able to join FaceTime calls. Apple announced that FaceTime is going to be available on the web so users can call in from Android devices and Windows PCs. The video calling service was previously only available on iOS and Mac devices from their WWDC.
FaceTime is a proprietary videotelephony product developed by Apple. FaceTime is available on supported iOS mobile devices running iOS 4 and later and Mac computers that run Mac OS X 10.6.6 and later. FaceTime supports any iOS device but FaceTime is also going to allow you to grab a link to a scheduled call so that you can share it with people in advance and join in at the right time. Apple is turning FaceTime into a bit more of a Zoom-like video calling service with this update.
Apple is Also Adding a feature that will allow Video and Audio Sharing over FaceTime.
A release date wasn’t immediately announced. It sounds like the web features will launch with iOS 15 in the fall.
