Thread: FaceTime Coming to Mac & PC

  1. #1
    Default FaceTime Coming to Mac & PC


    Feel like you've been missing out on FaceTime because you don't have a new iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4G? Well fear not, as word is coming down the pipleline that Apple plans on bringing FaceTime to both the Mac and Windows operating systems.

    Mac4Ever rumors that Apple’s FaceTime video calling will be headed to Mac OS X in the form of an iChat update, but interestingly enough, it will also be coming to Windows. While it is unsure what form FaceTime will take in Windows, it is understood that FaceTime is built on open standards and has been released as an open standard, which means we could see it completely integrated into existing services like Skype, Windows Live Messenger, or even built right inside of iTunes.

    This would be a very smart move on Apple's part, thus making FaceTime a more universal concept that we could see spread like a virus. Doing this makes everyone connected with Apple's technology, iDevice or no iDevice. Back in 2009, Mac4Ever predicted well in advance, Apple's October 2009 iMac refresh, including the addition of an SD card slot and quad-core processor, however even through all of this, we will have to wait for official news from Apple.

    What are your thoughts on this rumor? I personally would love to see an iChat for Windows get released.

    Default Duh.
    I was ticked off when FT didn't support iChat from the beginning. It's a pretty obvious notion.

    This would be a good step forward. Nice to use FaceTime with people that don't have iPhone 4 or iPod 4g

    Maybe they'll change the name. 'iChat AV' was always lame. Just like 'iPod with Video' - made it sound like an add-on feature.

    Wow, this is huge! FaceTime is way too limited right now. This should open up the floodgates a little in terms of users hopefully. I barely know that many people with an iPhone 4 or new iPod touch.

    Because you can't chat on messenger via webcam to people on their iPhone. Or iPod.

    Because I'm not 10 and don't have a messenger account...messengers are riddled with little kids and perverts...it's a dying concept just like that chat rooms from the early 90's. Everyone has cell phones now...and myspace(teens/kids) and Facebook - those replaced chat rooms...chatting on a messenger via webcam is only for creepy people now!


    GET OUT OF YOUR HOUSE, OFF THE COMPUTER AND REJOIN SOCIETY! GO TO A BAR/CLUB/GYM OR EVEN CHURCH TO MEET SOMEONE.

    Anyway, it's different because people that will use this are people that want to see someone on the go that doesn't have an iPhone 4...perfect example, myself and my co-workers and millions of others...travel all over the US, and I wouldn't mind being able to connect to my fiancé back home and see her beautiful face and smile. (over 3G of course) =) anytime I wanted...instead of having to sit in front of my MacBook in my hotel room...One more thing...people need to move with technology! Stop fighting it, you will get left behind very quickly!

    This is awesome. Free communication is always a good thing.

    Just the other day I was totally wondering why they didn't offer this. My conclusion was that it was an iOS-only thing, unless they somehow attached it to iTunes.

    This seems like a logical next step for Facetime, and will be very cool. It sucks only having facetime for the iPod Touch 4 and iPhone 4, of which I only know two people.

    I know you're half kidding (probably) but don't be an elitist.

    Well, gaming sucks on a Mac so well. hehe.

    I just saw a Droid commercial [I believe the X] that had what appeared to be a FaceTime call going on the screen.

    This would definitely be a good thing to have. A skype update wouldn't hurt either...
