Tim,

Please fix Facetime so I can call anyone, anywhere. Like Google voice, but do it better. This is the fix that we need most.

Thank you.

What do you mean?
If you download google voice onto your iphone, you can call any phone (including landlines). you can receive phone calls from any phone. You get voicemail.

If you use facetime audio call, you can only call other iDevices. they need to make it so that I can call anyone not just iDevices.

If you use facetime to video call, you can only call other iDevices. Skype lets you call any computer.

Apple needs to allow facetime to reach outside the walled garden.

Hope that explains what I mean.

It doesn't affect my Mac, but hopefully native FaceTime audio calling will soon get some love from the Apple Watch.
