What Is Facetime?

All devices from the iPhone 4, iPad 2, the fourth-generation iPod touch and Mac from the version OS X v10. 6 support the application.

The FaceTime app can be used right after you sign in with the Apple ID on the latest Apple devices. In addition to normal VoIP telephony, video connections can also be made with a tap on the FaceTime button. If the device has two cameras, it is possible to switch between the front and rear camera during the call. The front cameras of iphone, ipad and ipod touch are optimized for FaceTime and, according to the manufacturer, have “exactly the right field of view and the right focal length to focus on the face at arm’s length”. So you can not only see each other, but also always look perfect.
Cost of phone calls
Similar to Skype or Google Hangout, the conversations or video calls can be run free of charge. The FaceTime Windows app was originally designed to connect via WLAN. In the meantime, the service with the iphone 4s, the iphone 5 or an ipad from the 3rd generation can also be used via the mobile network. Depending on the data package you have booked, you may be charged with the use of FaceTime for the Internet connection. A data volume of approximately 50 KB is consumed per second, which is approximately 3 MB per minute. The transfer of such large amounts of data can quickly use the posted data volume or cause high Internet usage fees without a data package. Devices from iOS 6 can also make FaceTime calls over the cellular network.
