Simple and clean interface
From FaceTime’s user-friendly interface you can quickly login with your Apple ID and make video calls to contacts from your list that use FaceTime on their Mac or iOS device. The two-panel window helps you check your video feed and access your contacts list at the same time.
Seamless integration with Contacts
The best thing about FaceTime is that you are not required to import or enter your contacts list from scratch. The Contacts pane helps you access different groups, view your recent calls and add people to your Favorites list.
What is more, FaceTime allows you to view missed calls, as well as detailed information about your contacts, call duration and time. If you are not in the mood to make a video call, you can always use the FaceTime Audio function and simply call your friends, family or co-workers.
High-definition video calls
If your Mac has the required hardware and internet connection speed, you can receive HD video calls at up to 720p. Mac’s with a standard-definition cameras cam deliver up to VGA-quality video for Mac-to-Mac calls.
Once a call is initiated, all controls and panels fade away, fact that allows you to focus on your conversation. On top of that, you can enable the fullscreen mode in order to avoid other distractions and enjoy your HD video call.
Video transition will smooth the camera changes from front to rear or from portrait to landscape view made by iPhone, iPad or iPod touch users.
Moreover, FaceTime will ring on your Mac, even if the application is not running. At the same time, if you use FaceTime on multiple computers, the app will ring on all of them for you to pick up from the desired Mac.
