How To Join a FaceTime Call From an Android or Windows Web

Finally, iOS 15 is now available to download, and it has brought many surprises along. The biggest iOS 15 surprise is that now Apple users can FaceTime with non-Apple users.

Yep, you no longer need to use Zoom or Microsoft Teams to make video calls. Instead, Apple has allowed people to join a FaceTime call from their Android phones or Windows laptops with the new update.

That means now you can conduct video meetings on a robust FaceTime environment, no matter what device your team members are using. All you have to do is create a call link and share it with other people to make a call.

Let’s understand in detail how FaceTime calls will work on Android phones and Windows laptops.
