Video messaging and calls have become very common in today's age. You can now reach your colleagues, clients, friends and loved ones anywhere in the country or even abroad via video calling. It's fun and easy and almost anyone can do it.
FaceTime is a video calling service provided by Apple available on all of their iOS devices. You can now just tap on your contacts and start a FaceTime call with your colleagues, clients, friends and loved ones as long as you have access to the Internet via WiFi or mobile data.
