App Description

FaceTime for Mac makes it easy to talk, smile and laugh with friends and family on their iPhone 4, iPad 2, iPod touch or Mac. Getting started is quick and easy — simply enter your Apple ID and you're ready to go. Whether you're talking to someone on an iPhone or on another Mac, video calls with FaceTime look great. There's no better way to keep all your favorite faces just a click away. Simple to Get Started • Setup is quick and easy – just enter your Apple ID. • With just one click, you can make a video call to an iPhone 4, iPad 2, iPod touch, or another Mac. Easy-to-Organize Contacts • Make calls using your existing Address Book contacts – you don’t have to enter your contacts from scratch. • Add the people you call most often to your Favorites list. • Quickly review your past calls with Recents. High-Definition Video • Receive HD video calls at up to 720p on supported, Intel-based Macs.* • A Mac with a standard-definition camera delivers up to VGA-quality video for Mac-to-Mac calls. Elegant Interface • Window and playback controls fade away so the focus stays on your conversation. • View transitions smoothly when an iPhone 4, iPad 2, or iPod touch user switches from front to rear cameras or from portrait to landscape views. • FaceTime's widescreen aspect ratio makes it easy for families and groups to participate in a call. • Enjoy your video call full screen, using every inch of your beautiful Mac display. Ring Anywhere, Any Time • Incoming calls ring on your Mac, even if FaceTime isn’t running. • If you have more than one Mac, incoming calls ring on every one so you can answer on the Mac that’s most convenient. *Video calls require a built-in FaceTime camera, an iSight camera (built-in or external), a USB video class (UVC) camera, or a FireWire DV camcorder; and a 128-Kbps upstream and downstream Internet connection. Making HD video calls requires a built-in FaceTime HD camera and a 1-Mbps upstream and downstream Internet connection. Receiving HD video calls requires a supported Intel-based Mac.

App Reviews

  • Doesn’t work on OSX High Sierra

    By JonGodfrey
    I am extremely frustrated with Apple. I downloaded the newest OS version, High Sierra. Apple lets you buy the application. Then, when you go to install, you get an error message stating, "FaceTime can’t be installed on “Macintosh HD” because the version of macOS is too new.” Come on Apple, really?
  • Doesn’t work!

    I would appreciate having my money back, since this app doesn’t even work!
  • Good app

    By Goonie537
    This app is very good, i have a 2007 imc that runs snow leapord, but never got facetime, Now i got facetime and can do everything i want it to do

    If you have a Mac running a Mac OS from 2014 or newer, you already have this. Mac OS X 10.7 “Lion” or newer has this built-in. This purchase is only for users of Mac OS X 10.6 “Snow Leopard” - a very old version of the Mac OS. Running this on an old (first generation) MacBook Pro from 2006, running Mac OS X 10.6.8 “Snow Leopard”, it works fine for me, connecting to friends/family using FaceTime on iPhones, iPads, or newer Macs.
  • Can't Sign In

    By hfjak9065
    FaceTime won't let me sign in using my Apple ID and (correct!) password. I've re-set it three times and entered all the two-step verification codes. I have no problem signing into the App Store (which is how I'm writing this review) and my Apple ID online (where I also tried an app-specific password, without success). Nothing works. Can't sign in. Waste of time and $0.99.
  • miss leading information

    By It's a really good app!
    The compatibility information is absolutely a lie, it says that it works with 10.6.6 or later, and I am running 10.6.8 and it doesn't work. I know is only one dollar, but it is still miss leading infomation. were is their credibility? need to be carefull and maybe not trust there information....... Glad it is just a dollar!!!!!!!!
  • C’mon Apple, get your act together

    By CopperOpa
    Mac OS Sierra too “new” for FaceTime? Come on, Apple, make sure at least your apps are ready for the latest OS. Please update FaceTime ASAP. Thank you.
  • Interesting...

    By Sandman 2
    Now this is interesting ~ I attempted to install FaceTime, on OS X 10.10.5, and received the following message: “FaceTime can’t be installed on “Macintosh HD” because the version of OS X is too new.”
  • Why was this ever an app that users had to pay for

    By macmichael01
    FaceTime should have always been a free app. Just want to make sure that users DO NOT download this as it now ships for free with the latest OS. I really wish this app would disappear from the app store.
  • Just Doesn't Work

    By Twooood
