When most people hear the word FaceTime, they think of Apple's call service as a video communications platform. But you don't need a camera to use FaceTime, because it supports audio calls too. That means you can use it on Apple Watch as long as it's connected to Wi-Fi or cellular.
If you've ever taken a phone call on your Apple Watch when your iPhone isn't within easy reach, you'll know that it includes a built-in microphone and speaker so you can hear the other person on a call and respond to them clearly. Similarly, you can place and receive FaceTime audio calls on your Apple Watch too. The following steps guide you through the process.
How to Make a FaceTime Call on Apple Watch
- Open the Phone app on your Apple Watch.
- Tap Contacts.
- Tap the contact your want to call.
- Tap the phone icon.
- Tap FaceTime Audio.
You can also use Siri to place a FaceTime call on your Apple Watch. Simply press and hold the Digital Crown, raise your wrist to your mouth, and say "FaceTime [contact's name]."
