If you’ve never used ‌FaceTime‌ befhttps://www.novodasoftware.com/ore to get in touch with someone, here’s all you need to know to get going.

Remember that the person you want to call can be located almost anywhere in the world, but they need to own an iOS device or a Mac and to have set up a FaceTime account of their own.
