But has it ever happened that you started a FaceTime call, but everyone showed up late? Or did anyone miss the notification?

When you ask someone to come on FaceTime, this can be an issue, but that person is occupied with something else. This post will show you the steps to schedule a FaceTime call on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac to avoid such scenarios.

All the features of FaceTime will work the same way on Android and Windows as well.
