The FaceTime app has become a world-class video calling app with the latest update for iOS 15 and macOS Monterey. New features like FaceTime App screen sharing, portrait, and voice isolation make the sound very loud when needed. But what apparently caught everyone’s attention was the FaceTime app support for Windows and Android.
However, Android users cannot download the FaceTime app and make their own FaceTime calls. But with the release of iOS 15, iPad 15, etc., it is possible for an Apple user to send FaceTime to invite links for Android users.
