AT&T to Enable FaceTime Over Cellular For All Customers

Posted by · 10249 views · Translate

AT&T has announced that it will enable FaceTime over Cellular for all customers by the end of the year in a statement provided to the The Verge.

For video chat apps that come pre-loaded on devices, we currently give all OS and device makers the ability for those apps to work over cellular for our customers who are on Mobile Share or Tiered plans. Apple, Samsung and BlackBerry have chosen to enable this for their pre-loaded video chat apps. And by mid-June, we’ll have enabled those apps over cellular for our unlimited plan customers who have LTE devices from those three manufacturers.

Throughout the second half of this year, we plan to enable pre-loaded video chat apps over cellular for all our customers, regardless of data plan or device; that work is expected to be complete by year end.

Today, all of our customers can use any mobile video chat app that they download from the Internet, such as Skype.

Back in January, AT&T announced 'as a result of ongoing testing' that it would enable FaceTime over Cellular for all customers with a tiered data plan. The company initially tried to make the feature only available to those on Mobile Share plans but intense criticism and Net Neutrality complaints forced it to relax the restrictions.
