That’s pretty much it! Now, go ahead with the call as usually.

Wrapping up

As far as adding tons of joy to the conversation is concerned, I find this feature right on the money. I wish Animojis were available across the iOS devices. Wouldn’t it be great if you could use them on your iPad as well?

FaceTime has got probably the biggest ever update in several years in the form of the group calling feature (up to 32 people). Faced with a strong competition from third-party video calling apps like  Skype, Viber, and even Messenger, it has got the much needed shot in the arm to remain a top-notch option. What’s the one feature you would still like to see in FaceTime?
