Use SharePlay for a more natural FaceTime calling and sharing experience FaceTime helps customers easily connect with the people who matter most, and with iOS 15, conversations with friends and family feel more natural. With spatial audio, the voice in a FaceTime call sounds like it comes from the location of the person on the screen,1 and a new microphone mode separates the user’s voice from background noise. Inspired by stunning portrait photos taken on the iPhone, Portrait Mode is now available for FaceTime and is designed for video calls so users can blur the background and bring themselves into focus. 2 When using Group FaceTime, a new grid view enables participants to see more faces simultaneously.
Users can now share SharePlay experiences while connecting with friends via FaceTime, including listening to songs with Apple Music, watching TV shows or movies in sync from Apple TV+ and other streaming services, or sharing screens to view apps together. SharePlay works on iPhone, iPad, and Mac, and with the Share Play controls, anyone in a SharePlay session can play, pause, or jump. SharePlay even extends to Apple TV, so users can watch shows or movies on the big screen. Disney+, ESPN+, HBO Max, Hulu, MasterClass, Paramount+, Pluto TV, TikTok, Twitch and many others are integrating SharePlay into their apps – creating new ways to connect.
