Apple’s big iOS 15 update for iPhones lets you invite Windows and Android users to your FaceTime calls.
This is the first time this has been possible. Previously, FaceTime calls were limited to people using iPhones, iPads, and Macs only.
Now, when you initiate a FaceTime call from an iPhone, you can invite people using a Windows computer or other gadgets like an Android phone. All you have to do is send them a link that they can open in a web browser to join the call. This means that you and your family don’t have to choose a different app if you have a mix of people using different software.
You must approve anyone who tries to join using that link, which helps prevent random people from joining your call. One note: One still needs an Apple device such as an iPhone or iPad to initiate a call. But then anyone can join.
Here’s what to do:
- If you haven’t already installed iOS 15.
- Open FaceTime on your iPhone (or iPad).
- Tap on the “Create Link” button in the top left.
- Choose how you want to send the link. You can send it via text message, email, or any third-party messaging app on your device, such as Teams or Slack. send it.
- You’ll see the main FaceTime screen after you send the link to a friend.
- Now tap on “FaceTime Link” on the left side to start a call from your iPhone or iPad.
- Tap “Join”.
- Now whoever has the link can click on the link, enter their name and request to join the conversation.
- As the host, you will now approve anyone to join by tapping the green checkmark button.
this much only!
