Pause a video call

You can pause a FaceTime video call to temporarily stop transmitting video. Both participants can still hear each other talk unless you mute the call.

Open FaceTime for me

  • Pause a video call: Click the yellow minimize button at the top of the FaceTime window.

    If you’re in full-screen view, first exit out of the view.

  • Resume a paused video call: Click the FaceTime icon in the Dock.
