As an Apple's built-in video call app, FaceTime is a free service that allows you to connect with other people on iPad. However, it is impossible for iPad users to use FaceTime to make a group video conference with others for business, education or training. Because FaceTime only supports one-to-one video conference call.
In the circumstance, you may need a third-party iPad video conference app to help you make a video conference with your teams, clients or employees whenever you want and wherever you are. Here we choose top 5 popular video conferencing apps for iPad and provide a brief introduction on their features and prices.
