No, that’s not a mistake. Apple really did announce that FaceTime is coming to Android and Windows as part of their WWDC Keynote overnight. The downside is that it’s not going to be an installed option, you’ll be logging in via the Web.
The announcement comes — seemingly as a realisation — while many users globally are working from home and using video calling far more to stay in touch. Further evidenced by the ability to share a meeting link with others and the grid view also shown off during the event.
As part of the update, expected with the new version of iOS, another feature called SharePlay is being introduced. The feature allows you to “share” what you’re watching with others on approved platforms. Looking at the list, there’s limited few available in Australia:
- Disney Plus
Other services — primarily US based — include ESPN Plus, Hulu, HBO Max, MasterClass, NBA, Paramount Plus and Pluto TV. With a lot to like in the announcements overnight from Apple, perhaps the time has come to seriously consider an iPad.
