  9. Receiving a FaceTime Call:

Make a FaceTime call in a Messages chat

Starting a FaceTime call from a Messages conversation is an easy and convenient way to keep in touch with someone. A few simple steps can get you connected to the person with whom you are exchanging messages.

First, tap at the top right of the Messages conversation. This will bring up a list of contact options, including FaceTime Audio, or FaceTime Video if both people have compatible devices for video calls. The start of the call is then initiated by tapping on FaceTime Audio or FaceTime Video depending on your preference. Once one of those options has been selected, you and the other person in your conversation will be put into direct contact with each other through audio or video communications interconnected by the internet connection.

As technology continues to expand its reach and capabilities even further, people all over the world have countless ways to stay connected virtually – starting a FaceTime call from a messages conversation just makes it easier for two people to build stronger bonds through communication.

Remove a call from your FaceTime call history

Deleting a call from your call history can be extremely helpful if you are looking to declutter and clear up space on your device. When it comes to FaceTime, it is surprisingly simple to do this. All that is need is for the user to simply swipe left over the call they would like to delete in their call history, and then tap Delete. It only takes two simple steps and is a great way to organize your conversations.

By deleting calls from your call history, not only are you freeing up valuable space on your device but you will also have a better organized list of all past conversations you had with contacts on FaceTime. This makes it easier when looking back on these conversations as there will be less clutter in the way of other calls one might not want or need anymore. Additionally, this can help keep things more private by removing any unnecessary information that may still remain visible after one has finished talking with someone.

Ways to troubleshoot FaceTime call issues on your iPad

When it comes to fixing FaceTime calls not working on your iPad, the first step is to make sure you have a strong Wi-Fi or cellular data connection. Without this, your device won’t be able to connect with Apple’s servers and thus will lead to an inability in receiving calls. Additionally, some routers or networks use firewalls to provide better security for the network, but at the cost of some types of Internet traffic not being allowed in or out. So if you are connected to such a network, ports must be opened up in order for FaceTime functionality.

To solve these issues, check your connection strength and router settings and open up necessary ports if needed. With these steps done, you will have a much better chance of resolving why FaceTime calls are not coming through on your iPad. Some extra troubleshooting may be required on rare occasions due to special configurations that can interfere with communication between the iPad and Apple’s servers – but all in all most issues can usually be resolved quickly by following these simple steps.
