FaceTime for Mac 1.x: Make video calls
Use FaceTime on your Mac to see and hear friends and family using FaceTime on their Mac, iPhone 4, iPod touch, or iPad. FaceTime lets you catch up, hang out, joke around, and stay in touch. All you need is an Apple ID and an email address or phone number, and you’re ready to call.
Start a video call
- Sign in to FaceTime by entering your Apple ID.
- Select the friend you want to call. You can call any contact in your Address Book. Note: If your friend’s not in Address Book, you can quickly add your friend right from FaceTime.
- Click your friend’s phone number to call her iPhone, or click an email address to call her iPod touch, her Mac, or her iPad.
An invitation appears on your friend’s screen. When she accepts, the video call begins. And there you are, face to face. Mac to iPhone, Mac to iPod touch, Mac to Mac, or Mac to iPad.
