Remember when video chat was only accomplished over a webcam on a computer? And remember when you could only video chat with one person at once? When Apple released iOS 12, video chat was brought to an entirely new level with the ability to FaceTime with up to 31 other people at one time. Whether you’re looking to catch up with a group of friends or have a virtual family meeting, knowing how to group FaceTime is a great way to stay connected to your people.
Keep in mind these instructions apply to devices running iOS 12.1.and later.
If you don’t have an Apple device, you may be able to use other platforms or apps to group video chat. Here are some examples:
Skype: Group video chat with up to 24 people at once
Snapchat: Group video chat with up to 16 people
Google Hangouts: Include up to 25 people in a group video chat
Facebook Messenger: Group video chat with up to 50 people
