FaceTime calls on iPhone

Here’s how you do;

Go to the contacts and choose the contact you like to call to on the FaceTime. Hit the FaceTime icon under the contact’s name in order to make a video call.

If you are already busy in a call with your buddy and want to make a video call, then you need to invite that person in a video call by pressing the FaceTime icon next to the contact name.

Siri can also be used for this purpose to initiate FaceTime callings. Siri does not always work accurately but to try isn’t a bad thing. You just need to tell Siri, ‘’FaceTime with David’’.

Using Siri is an optional case especially when you’re driving. If it does not recognize your contact, it might ask you to clarify who you’re talking about from your contact list.
