Jakarta, COTEKNO.COM – Apple announced that its video calling app, FaceTime, can be used on Android and Windows devices. The tech giant announced it along with a number of updates for iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and MacOS.
As MacRumours mentioned, FaceTime is getting some improvements in the upcoming iOS 15 operating system that will make it look and function more like Zoom and Microsoft Teams. Includes participant view and the ability to schedule calls.
The iOS 15 operating system will generally be released in July. After downloading the new operating system, users can make FaceTime calls to non-iOS devices, meaning they can be accessed by Android and Windows users.
How to access FaceTime services via Android and Windows is fairly easy.
Users do not need any additional applications, just take advantage of existing ones. So, iPhone or Mac users on iOS 15 can create a FaceTime invitation link.
Now, the invitation link can be shared with other users so they can join the FaceTime chat room, including users on Android and Windows devices.

Later Android and Windows users can access FaceTime via a web browser. For the record, Apple recommends that Android and Windows users use the latest version of the web browser.
At least the web browser supports the H.264 video encoding standard. But those participants won’t be able to make Face Time calls until the Apple user who set them up agrees.
