Tech Tip #40: Group FaceTime is a Group Lifeline.
During these crazy uncertain times, connecting with Friends and Family is evermore important. While FaceTime can enable video communication with up to 32 people it’s best used for smaller groups.
Here’s how to set it up:
- If you already have an ongoing group chat, just hit the arrow and select FaceTime
- The initiator will see a screen like this:
- Recipients will receive a message asking them to join.
- When you connect, whomever is speaking will become more prominently displayed
Alternatively, you can just open the FaceTime app, type in contact names and hit the + button when you’re finished. Anyone in the group can add another caller by tapping the screen to open the controls, swiping up from the top of the controls, and tapping Add Person.
Have fun connecting!
