How to Start Group FaceTime on iPhone and iPhone – Up to 32 Members!

Apple has equipped iPhones and iPads with lots of useful features that make it easier for people to get by in their daily lives. The one that stands out the most is FaceTime. As all Apple fans know already, FaceTime is a video calling app that uses the Cupertino based tech giant’s technology to provide users with the highest audio and video quality possible. To make things even better, Apple recently introduced the ability to get in group calls of up to 32 people on FaceTime.

If you are not sure how group FaceTime works on iPhone and iPad, then you have arrived at the right place. Today we are going to show you how to do group FaceTime on iOS. Not just that, but we are also going to share some useful tips. Without any further ado, let’s get into it.


The first thing that we want to mention about group calls is that not all iPhones and iPads meet the requirements for this feature. The device needs to run on a minimum of iOS 12.1.4 or later to set up FaceTime group calls. On the bright side of things, older iPhone and iPad models can join the groups as participants. In addition, the video calling app needs to be enabled from the Settings panel.
