Apple has finally listened to the consumer and is giving them group #FaceTime after all this time. According to Apple themselves, group FaceTime will allow you to Face Time up to 32 people at once.
The update will have many features such as automatically bringing the person who is talking to the forefront, while the people who are the least active will be at the bottom of the screen until they’re more active.
You also have the option to make anyone’s icon bigger by simply tapping on it. You’ll even be able
to start a group FaceTime directly from your group chat y’all!!
A Peep into all the dope features of group Face Time will include below
- Group FaceTime
With iOS 12.1, FaceTime is more fun and flexible, with simple ways to add another person, join an active FaceTime call, or
use the same camera effects available in Messages to add stickers, filters or appear to friends and family as an Animoji or Memoji. When an invitation is
received, people can choose to join using audio or video from iPhone, iPad and Mac.
Additional features coming to FaceTime:
- Automatic detection of active speakers:
FaceTime uses on-device
intelligence to display the most
prominent speakers on the call,
automatically highlighting the
current speaker by bringing them to the forefront. It automatically sites each person’s image dependent upon how active they are in the course of the conversation, based on duration of speech, volume and even motion. Participants who are not active will appear at the bottom of the screen until they speak. A simple tap also brings a participant front And center.
- Ringless notification:
When calling more than one person, FaceTime displays a notification that lets you instantly join a call without being disruptive.
- Messages integration:
Group FaceTime is integrated into the Messages app, making it easy to start a Group FaceTime right from a group iMessage chat. If people in a conversation have
already started a FaceTime session, Messages shows the active call in the conversation list & inside your conversations.
All FaceTime conversations, both
one-to-one and multi-person, are
encrypted end to end so they
remain private and viewable only by the participants.
