Web-based Facetime now available for Android by Apple

Share on:

Today, Apple is holding a pre-recorded version of its WWDC keynote, during which they will announce improvements to a variety of platforms, beginning with iOS. There may be multiple changes to their mobile operating system related to Android, but they kicked things off by stating that Facetime will eventually find its way to Android.

iOS users will be able to invite their non-iOS contacts to a video call that they may join via a browser as part of the new Facetime links sharing functionality. This implies that Android and Windows users will be able to join a Facetime call, which was previously exclusive for iOS or Mac users.

Apple stated that it will be encrypted as usual, so this does appear to be a useful addition to their famous video chatting option

Apple has included tools such as schedule calls, SharePlay, and share your screen to assist Apple users in continuing to utilise FaceTime while communicating with family and friends on other platforms. SharePlay enables a group of users to view and listen to the same content simultaneously during a call. It supports the playback of music and videos from Apple Music, Apple TV, Disney Plus, Hulu, HBO Max, and Twitch.

Finally, to make FaceTime calls more interactive and intuitive, Apple is introducing spatial audio, voice isolation to enhance sound quality, grid view, and portrait mode.
