Find out how to make a FaceTime App video call on your Mac, how to set up FaceTime App on your Mac so your friends and family can video call for you, and FaceTime tips including changing ringtones, switching to full screen and rotating. Videos, silence, and more.
We can’t all be with our family and friends all the time (especially now!), But that doesn’t mean I can’t “see” them. As long as your family and friends have an Apple device, they can use the FaceTime App and you can video call them. We explain how to do this below.
The best thing about FaceTime is that it is completely free. FaceTime calls are free because they use Wi-Fi or mobile data (instead of mobile minutes). This means that even if you use someone’s FaceTiming on your iPhone when the person is not connected to WiFi and not connected to WiFi, you won’t have to pay for everything you need (as long as you have enough details in your contract). This is a data connection for the duration of the call.
How To Setup FaceTime App On Mac
To set up and sign in to FaceTime on a Mac:
- Open the FaceTime app (press Command + Space and start linking FaceTime)
- If you haven’t signed into FaceTime yet, you should. Enter your Apple ID and password and click Next.
- Please wait while you register.
- To control how people can communicate with you, click FaceTime> Settings in the menu. You can disable all email addresses associated with the account if you don’t want them to be used for FaceTime (for example, you may not want others to use your work email address to contact you.
- On the other hand, if you want to add another email address to this list, open System Preferences (press Command + Spacebar and start linking System Preferences).
- Click on Apple ID.
- Now select Name, Phone, Email in the left column.
- Here you can add and delete contact information that will appear later in your FaceTime settings.
In earlier versions of Mac iOS, you had to select iCloud in System Preferences and click the Contact tab.
