At WWDC 2021, Apple subtly announced FaceTime will come to Android and other non-Apple devices.
The announcement came in the midst of Apple detailing FaceTime’s new links feature, which lets people create a FaceTime link similar to how other video calling services work. Users can share these links and people can click them to join a call.
For people who don’t have an Apple device, FaceTime links will open in web browsers, allowing anyone to participate in a FaceTime call. It’s a really neat addition that should make FaceTime a more popular video calling option for everyone, whether they use an Apple device or not.
Hopefully, this means Apple will also bring iMessage to Android, although that seems incredibly unlikely.
More to come…
