Full Answer

FaceTime is a visual communication feature created by Apple in 2010. It allows users to communicate with each other with specific models of iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Apple computers with the most current operating system. FaceTime uses data or Wi-Fi connections rather than traditional phone “minutes.” “FaceTime Audio” became an additional feature introduced in 2013, and it allows the user to use FaceTime without its video component. FaceTime functionality and features may vary depending on the user’s mobile phone carrier.
