iOS 11 to Bring Group FaceTime Video Calling?

Posted January 21, 2017 at 1:13am by iClarified
Apple is planning to update FaceTime with support for group calling in iOS 11, according to a report from The Verifier. The software update which will likely be introduced at WWDC is said to bring more social features.

The next update, iOS 11, will include several new features, one of which is the multi-user to make a call FaceTime video service. According to information reaching the site, the next update for the iOS operating system 11, will be more Update 'social' that will put an emphasis primarily on chats on iMessage and FaceTime.

Sources tell the site that it will be possible to start a video call from a group conversation in iMessage. The FaceTime group video calling feature will allegedly let you add up to five people to your call.

The site says it can't confirm that the feature will make the cut for iOS 11.0; however, it has verified that the feature exists and is currently under development.

We'd definitely like to see group video calling added to iOS and we'll keep you up to date with any developments. You can follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS.

Yip, while this feature is welcome, it should have been there from at least IOS 7. And why wait for a BIG announcement push it in an update, this is not a new technology?

Apple: "a jailbreak is coming out?!! That's easy, we will bait them with a feature in the next major release that they think has never been seen before (thanks android :-) ) with security patch for the vulnerability. Voila!! problem solved.!!!!"

This should have been available in iOS 7. It has been long overdue.

Its called gotomeetings and I can do that now. This multi facetime for ios11 should have launched on ios10. That would have put ios10 ahead a bit in popularity. Sure adoption is high on ios 10 but its forced.
