Sometimes you must be tired of traditional mobile serving for making calls. Neither the cost nor the intermittent bad signal can cheer you up. So I believe FaceTime can be your best choice. Let me get some points about FaceTime across for you.
Part 1: What FaceTime is and How FaceTime works
Designed by Apple, FaceTime serves as a video and audio calling service. It is the perfect alternative to traditional phone lines. It works on any iOS devices like iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Mac and allows you to make video or audio calls anytime you want for free. Let me show the steps on how to make a FaceTime Audio/Video call.
Step 1: Open FaceTime app. Enter the name of the contact you want to have a FaceTime with in the search bar.
Step 2: Click the icon marked in red to make a video call or click the icon marked in yellow to make an audio call.

Part 2: Some Question You Must Know before Using FaceTime to Make a Call
Since FaceTime is such a great tool for getting connected with others, I believe you cannot wait to give it a try. It really is well worth your time, although you still need to figure out some points for the best experience before you starting using it.
1. Does FaceTime use cellular data? Does FaceTime use Wi-Fi? Does FaceTime cost money? Does FaceTime audio use minutes?
Wi-Fi is the default requirement for FaceTime. If Wi-Fi is not available to you and you don’t disable cellular data, FaceTime will automatically use cellular data to work. So it may cost money if you use cellular data, although you can easily turn off FaceTime’s access to your cellular data. Actually, FaceTime itself is totally free apart from the cost for cellular data and Wi-Fi. Both video calls and audio calls need no minutes at all, which makes FaceTime a wonderful money saver for you.
2. How much data does FaceTime use?
Normally the amount of the data you use on FaceTime is not huge, although you still should keep in mind that make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi if you are going to have a long-time chat with your friend. The longer time FaceTime takes, the more data will be used.
Part 3: How to FaceTime More than One Person on iPad
I am sorry to say that you can only work with FaceTime in a one-to-one mode. If you are looking for an app to chat with more than two persons, I can introduce an alternative for you.
Fam is a great communication app supporting running video chats with up to nine people at the same time, which is a number far more than FaceTime. And it only can be used among iOS users because it works with iMessage.
