How to Use FaceTime on Android Smartphone
FaceTime is an in-built video/audio calling app found in iOS devices like iPhone, iPad, and Mac. The app was exclusive for Apple users until they welcomed Android users recently. This door opening has happened because of the Internet based learning and working culture. In this post you will find how Android users can participate in a FaceTime call.
First, you should know that only an iOS user can initiate a FaceTime call. Android users can only participate using the call link and the acceptance of the call initiator. Hence, they must only worry about how they are going to join the call.
Note: This feature of inviting Android and Windows users into FaceTime was released with the iOS 15 update. So only Apple users using the latest version of iOS on their device can invite you.
