FaceTime To Rival Zoom?

At the WDC event, Apple announced upcoming updates pertinent to its proprietary iOS 15 and hinted that FaceTime is up for a makeover. Apple’s new updates will make FaceTime work and feel like existing video-conferencing apps: namely Zoom.

FaceTime will get a grid view allowing users to look at the participants in large numbers comfortably. In addition, users will have the option to schedule calls.

Adding more to its functionality, Apple will also bring a feature named Shareplay. This will allow participants to watch or listen to the same audio or video at once. That means, you could play music, or video and also share it with others in real-time.

It is obvious that Apple is molding FaceTime as any other mainstream video-calling pass with new updates. This suggests their intention to rival the existing video-calling apps beyond its walls and that brings to us the name: Zoom, the video-conferencing juggernaut.

Since the lockdown began, Zoom has been everyone’s favorite for online meetings, learning, workshops, and virtually everything. Since the lockdown began, Zoom’s value has skyrocketed worldwide and seems to dodge any contest. But perhaps Apple expects a go at it. With FaceTime coming to Android and Windows, Apple expects to stir the almost hegemonic stature it has garnered over the last year.

But you must be informed that Apple is not developing an app for FaceTime. It will rather arrive as a web interface that will facilitate smartphone users and Windows PC users to call in among each other.
