How to make a FaceTime call from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

Apple makes sure you always have the things you want, like FaceTime. FaceTime is Apple's free video calling service. With a tap, you can make video calls over Wi-Fi from every iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac to someone else’s, anywhere in the world. What's more, you can even make FaceTime calls over cellular networks on iPhone or iPad as long as you have enough data from anywhere you have 3G or 4G LTE access. So today I am going to show you the easiest way to make a FaceTime from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
How to make a FaceTime call from your iPhone
To begin with, you should set up FaceTime first on your iPhone. Apple official website have detailed tutorial for you, just check it.
Then follow these simple steps to start:
  1. Launch the Phone app from the Home screen of your iPhone.
  2. Find the contact that you'd like to FaceTime. Remember, they must have an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac capable of receiving FaceTime calls as well.
  3. Scroll all the way down on their contact card and tap on the option for FaceTime.
  4. Make sure that you select the right one if you have multiple phone numbers and emails for that person.
  5. The FaceTime call will connect and after a few seconds, you should see the person on the other end pick up. That's it!

Also, if you're already on a phone call with someone and want to FaceTime instead, you can easily convert the call to a FaceTime call in just a few short taps. Just Look at the call menu, Tap on the FaceTime option. If it's greyed out, that means FaceTime is not available or you can.

How to make a FaceTime call from your iPad or iPod touch
On the iPad and iPod touch, you'll need to be connected to a WiFi network. Once that's taken care of, you can get started with making FaceTime calls to other iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac users. That is a little different than making a FaceTime call on iPhone. Here's how...
  1. Launch the FaceTime app from the Home screen of your iPad or iPod touch.
  2. On the right hand side, you'll see the list of contacts that you have in your Address Book. Tap on the one you'd like to make a FaceTime call to.
  3. You'll now see that person's Contact Card. You can select either their phone number or email. Remember they must have a FaceTime capable device as well or the session will fail.
  4. The FaceTime call will now initiate.
  5. Once the person on the other side accepts the video call, you'll see your iPad or iPod touch say Connecting. Then you should be able to communicate freely. That's all.
