Apple FaceTime was introduced in 2010, then, it only supports video calls between just two people.
The FaceTime might be taking a shift this year from the two people video call feature that other video call apps have too to a more cool feature, the group FaceTime.
According to an unconfirmed report from Israel, Apple is going to make group FaceTime calls a feature of iOS 11. Which will be dropping soon.
The new version of the mobile operating system will probably be unveiled, like clockwork, at the company’s annual WWDC conference in the summer. It should then go through the usual phase of developer-focused and public betas before being released for everyone in the fall, this is always the period Apple will release their new iPhone.
The information regarding group FaceTime video calls in iOS 11 allegedly comes from “several people familiar with iOS development process”, which is apparently being done, in part, in Israel. The group calling feature will support up to five people at a time, and will be initialized through group iMessage conversations.
