Apple Releases FaceTime For Mac; Allows Users To Make Video Calls From Mac To iPhone, iPod Touch Or Mac
Steve Jobs has just announced at today’s Back to Mac event that FaceTime – Apple’s video calling feature that was first introduced on iPhone 4 and later on the new iPod Touch 4G will be available for Mac users.
FaceTime for Mac is very easy to setup just like FaceTime on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G.
Apple explains the process on its website:
All you need is an Apple ID and an email address and you’re ready to roll. To start a video call with your best friend, just find her entry in the Contacts list. FaceTime works perfectly with Address Book so you don’t have to enter your contacts from scratch. Click her phone number if you want to call her iPhone 4. To call her iPod touch or Mac, use her email address. An invitation pops up on her screen. When she accepts, the video call begins. And there you are, face to face. Mac to iPhone, iPod touch, or Mac.
FaceTime for Mac requires Mac OS X v10.6.4 Snow Leopard or later.
You can download the beta version of FaceTime for the Mac using this link.
