You can make FaceTime calls not only from your iPhone or iPad, but from your Mac too. This means you can use it with anyone else using an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac computer that also supports FaceTime. It also doesn't eat into your cellular data plan like FaceTime calls over cellular do, which makes it an even better option for when you're at home.
Here's how to get started.
Note: To use FaceTime on your Mac, you'll need to be running Mac OS X Snow Leopard or later.
- Launch the FaceTime app from the dock or Applications folder on your Mac.
- In the right hand navigation pane, find the name of the person you'd like to FaceTime and click on it.
- You'll now see their contact card. Click on the number or email you'd like to initiate the FaceTime call with.
- The FaceTime session will start to connect.
- Once a connection is made, you'll be able to FaceTime with the person on the other side. That's it!
