Posted by Diya on December 25, 2010 in Apple,Mac

It’s not just for iPhone and iPod touch anymore ! Facetime is available on your Mac as well (albeit Beta version). Now you can make video calls to iPhone 4, the new iPod touch, or another Mac. Right from your Mac.

With FaceTime for Mac, it is now possible to talk, smile, wave, and laugh with anyone on an iPhone 4, iPod Touch, or Mac from your Mac over Wi-Fi. Remember that facetime with 3gs does not work. Beta version of Facetime for Mac is available for download from the Apple website. It requires Mac OS X v10.6.4 Snow Leopard or later.

Facetime for Mac makes use of the tiny camera, already available  on your Mac. While using the facetime for mac, the window frame and controls fade away and this helps you enjoy the conversation without any distractions. When you call someone on an iPhone 4 or iPod touch, you see everything on the other end without a hitch. Whether they use the front or rear camera or rotate from portrait to landscape, FaceTime for Mac smoothly adjusts the view.
