It all started with iOS 12…
When Apple released iOS 12, several of its innovations went with the upgrading of FaceTime, including the group's final calls to our iPhone and iPad, and then MacOS High Sierra to the Mac. Apple provided this functionality as previously stated up to 32 contacts at once, of course If you are willing to agree with all your friends and you get a chance to make an appointment by phone Read on to learn how to make a group call through SpaceTime.
How to make a group call with SpaceTime from iPhone and iPad
The steps are simple, just follow the instructions below:
1st Open the app On time on your iPhone or iPad.
2nd Click the "+" in the top right corner.
Third Where that means "A:" We can directly type the name of the contacts we want to add to the group video call, and as we type the name, the same contacts will appear. If we want to add them by looking at all the contacts in the list and choosing which ones we want to call, we'll press the button "+" to the right of the addition line. We can add them again if we do not have a direct registered contact with your Apple ID or phone number.
Also, in the event that our chat group of friends or that we want to make the FaceTime party come in Messages, for a group chat, start a video call directly, thus adding all present at the same time.
