Apps for video meetings

Via FaceTime you can reach contacts using your phone number or Apple ID, make video and audio calls, connect with up to 32 people at once.

It works over Wi-Fi (iPhone 4 or later) and mobile (iPhone 4s or later) data networks.

Apple uses end-to-end encryption to protect data during connection. This eliminates the possibility that someone will crack your call and get access to your data. FaceTime is a user-friendly app and has an engaging design. It allows place stickers, use effects to become Animoji. You can create Favorites for quick access to key people in the Phone app.

FaceTime is available only for iOS users, and not in every country. For example, it’s banned in UAE. VOIP applications are banned because they provide unlicensed Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) service, which is against the UAE’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority’s (TRA) law.

The FaceTime application is banned in UAE, Qatar, Jordan and Saudi Arabia

FaceTime is also banned in some other Middle Eastern countries like Qatar and Jordan, for the same reason. Saudi Arabia removed a ban two years ago. iOS and iPadOS Feature Availability you can find here.
