How to invite Android or Windows users to join a FaceTime call on iOS 15

IOS and iPadOS 15 introduced the ability to invite users from other platforms to FaceTime calls using a link. This is how it works.

The new feature allows people without an Apple ID to join a FaceTime call using a browser on any device, be it a Windows PC or an Android smartphone.

This turns FaceTime into a platform-independent video calling service. However, only an iOS, iPadOS, or macOS gadget user can initiate a call. What is needed for this:
  • Launch the FaceTime app on your iPhone or iPad.
  • Click Create Link.
  • Give your FaceTime link a name by clicking Add Name.
  • Choose how your link will be sent via the Share menu. This can be done through “Messages” or by email.

Users who receive the link will be redirected to the video call launch page, where they can enter their name to join the conversation. After entering your name and clicking Continue, FaceTime in your browser will ask for permission to access your camera and microphone.

Participants in a FaceTime browser call can use the menu at the top of the screen to mute their camera and microphone, and switch between the front and rear cameras. While the service is in beta testing, its functionality is subject to change.
