The development of video conference technology enables you to make a video conference on iPhone without any limits whenever you want. Apple users can easily start a one-to-one video chat with other iOS device users via its built-in app - FaceTime. However, what if you want to make a group video conference on iPhone with your teams or clients? You may need a video conferencing app for iPhone to help finish the task. Here we are going to introduce you two ways to make personal or group video conference on iPhone.
Based on Apple's video and audio calling technology, FaceTime app enables you to make personal video conference call on iPhone with other Apple users. As long as you're on Wi-Fi or cellular data, you can stay in touch with your family or friends. You can not only hear but also see the people you're talking to. The following steps will show you how to make personal video conference call on iPhone via FaceTime.
Before using FaceTime on iPhone, you need:
