How to make a FaceTime call from your Mac

How to make a FaceTime call from your Mac

Apple's free video chat service, FaceTime, works on any Mac with OS X 10.7 Snow Leopard or later and web camera, including the ones built into MacBooks and iMacs. As long as you have an internet connection, including tethering, you can use your Mac to call anyone with a FaceTime compatible iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad as well. That makes FaceTime a great option for family and business calls alike!

How to make a FaceTime call from your Mac

  1. Launch the FaceTime app from the dock or Applications folder on your Mac.
  2. Find the name of the person you'd like to FaceTime, listed in the right hand navigation pane, and click on it.
  3. Click on the number or email you'd like to call, if you have multiple choices.
  4. Wait for the FaceTime session to connect.
  5. Start FaceTime'ing with the person on the other side!
